In Leatherface, the story revolves around four inmates who escape from a mental hospital late one night. One of them will become the title character and iconic slasher, known as Leatherface. The quartet kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge.
