Brief moments of kissing between couples. A man is tied up to the bed as his girlfriend kisses him. It is implied that woman is raped. A woman is hiding under a truck while a man unzips his pants and begins peeing. We don't see anything but the woman's disgusted expressions.|
|violence||10/10 Blood everywhere. A birth scene at the beginning is pained and ugly, with lots of screaming (mother dies, baby is monstrous); Baby Leatherface is trained to kill and cut up animals. Brief shot of gross roadkill. A old man is shot in the leg. A character's head is repeatedly smashed against the ground. Blood eventually begins showing. Chopping of animal parts emphasizes loud sounds and bloody aftermath. Weapons throughout include handgun, knives, chainsaw, sawed-off and regular shotguns, meat hook, hammer, cleaver and a bear trap.

Kids attempt feeble stabbing and punching of their adversaries and are repeatedly beaten back, in gory detail. A woman hides by submerging herself in a pool of blood, after she climbs out, she's covered with blood for the rest of the movie. A girl jumps through a glass window (survives the jump). A woman grabs a woman by the hair and holds her head up exposing her neck. A man then grabs a pair of scissors and cuts through the woman's neck.

Animals are killed in a slaughterhouse. A man is hit by a giant sludge hammer. The man falls and leather face hits the table, which then falls on the man. The man struggles to get up and leather face continuously hits his legs with the sludge hammer. Leather face then raises his sludge hammer and smashes it into the mans head.

|profanity||6/10 30 F-Words, along with other profanity e.g. hell and shit. Name calling (cocksucker, asshole and gooks.)|
|alcohol||3/10 Cigarette smoking and beer drinking in a bar. At the dinner table wine is poured and drunk.|
|frightening||9/10 The film overall is intense and dramatic. It's relentlessly bloody, dark-shadowed, and gruesome, with the titular chainsaw wreaking predictable (but still dire) havoc. Violence is graphic and incessant, with a range of weapons (guns, meat hooks, cleavers) producing severed limbs and body parts. A cow is smashed to bloody smithereens by a jeep. Human victims are tortured (hung from hooks, tied up, taunted, stabbed, and sawed.) The last 20-30 is especially suspenseful (intense chase scenes). 33/50|
