    The film which you are about to see

  • Unknown

    is an account of the tragedy

  • Narrator voice

    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

  • Unknown

    at the Hewitt residence.

  • Narrator voice

    Yet none of the evidence was more compelling

    than the classified police footage

    of the crime-scene walk-through.

  • Unknown

    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.

    Uh...

    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.
