It's prom season once again for a Texas high school and while on their way to the big dance, Jenny (Renée Zellweger) and her friends decide to take a detour through the woods. The night takes an unexpected turn after they accidentally crash their car and find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere. With few options, they decide to seek help in Darla, a seemingly innocent insurance agent whose office is located not too far away. After Darla calls for help, they set out back to the scene of the crash believing they'll soon be rescued. But their return is met with terror as they run into Leatherface and his insane brother Vilmer (Matthew McConaughey). Taken to an old farmhouse, they're greeted by the rest of the crazy, cannibalistic clan and it looks as if this is their last stop.
