What's "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" about

It's a 1974 American slasher film about a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals while on their way to visit an old homestead (owned by the notorious Leatherface). While largely fictional, the horror was sold as being based on true events, to garner further attention at the box office.
