TEXAS CHAINSAW is a sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror film, THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. Years after the events depicted in the original film, a young woman called Heather discovers she has inherited a house from her grandmother. When she and her friends visit the property they are confronted by a chainsaw-wielding maniac. The film is rated 18 for strong bloody violence and gory images.

There are a number of scenes of strong bloody violence in which people are attacked with chainsaws, hammers and other implements. There is sight of bodies being sawn into, limbs being sawn off and blood spraying onto the camera lens. Dead bodies and body parts are also shown with strong gory detail. In one sequence a victim has the top layers of skin removed from his face in order to produce a 'mask'.

There is strong threat throughout as characters are pursued by the chainsaw-wielding character known as 'Leatherface'.

There is some use of strong language, which is sometimes aggressive in tone.

There is also a brief sequence in which a young woman is shown smoking a joint, and two scenes in which women are shown in their underwear.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger that 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video or DVD.
