The Movie: 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (1974)

The Scene: Sally and her brother Franklin take some friends on a Texas road-trip to investigate the cemetery where Sally's grandfather was laid to rest, after reports surfaced that a vandalism occurred. While they wait for a local gas station to get a fuel refill -- so they can get back on the road -- Kirk and his girlfriend Pam slip away from the group to go swimming. Along their walk, they come across a decrepit house filled with broken-down cars and farm equipment. Hoping the residents have extra gasoline laying around, Kirk knocks on the front door. But instead of receiving a charitable act from a stranger, he stumbles into first contact with one of movie history's most notorious slasher serial killers -- Leatherface.
