The Texas Chainsaw Massacre | 2003
Clip Name: Prologue
The film which you are about to see
is an account of the tragedy
which befell a group of 5 youths.
It is all the more tragic in that they were young,
but had they lived very, very long lives,
they could not have expected,
nor would they have wished to see
as much of the mad and macabre as they were to see that day.
For them, an idyllic summer afternoon became a nightmare.
For 30 years, the files collected dust
in the cold-cases division
of the travis county police department.
Over 1,300 pieces of evidence
were collected from the crime scene
at the Hewitt residence.
Yet none of the evidence was more compelling
than the classified police footage
of the crime-scene walk-through.
Test, test, test.
Ok, uh... this is august 20, 1973.
The time is 3:47 p.m.
Our location is the Hewitt residence on route 17.
That's where victim one was found.
We're gonna do a walk-through,
and we're now descending the stairs
into the furnace room.
there's... over here.
There's scratch marks along the wall.
There's some more over here, right along here.
And... oh, there's something over here. It seems like...
it looks like a clot of hair and an embedded fingernail.
All right, we're gonna go move into the actual furnace room.
The events of that day
were to lead to one of the most bizarre crimes
in the annals of American history...
the Texas chainsaw massacre.
