A pair of California travelers encounter a cannibal family, whose members include Tex (Viggo Mortensen). The hapless travelers’ only hope lies in a survivalist who happens to be in the neighborhood. There’s lots of action; see the film’s Wikipedia page for more plot details.
Leatherface is the sequel to the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and the 1986 film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. If you like gory horror films about cannibals with chainsaws, you’ll probably enjoy this film. Otherwise its only redeeming value is a few shots of Viggo looking cute in a frilly apron as he stirs the stew meat.

Viggo comments on his pre-1999 movies, including Prison, Leatherface, Reflecting Skin, Indian Runner, Crimson Tide, The Prophecy, G.I. Jane, A Perfect Murder, Psycho. He also discusses his art and upcoming showings. Finally, when asked, "In twenty years, would you rather be remembered as an actor who painted or a painter who acted?" he replies, "I'd like to know that I was honest. I was myself as far as just being an artist and being an actor or poet or photographer or painter or whatever the hell. Being an artist is being an artist. So just be."
