There is no overt domestic violence in this one. I believe the other voters mistook this movie as the original 1970’s version, while this is the category for the 2003 remake.

There’s no on-screen physical child abuse I can remember, but there is a young boy who’s definitely at the very least neglected and emotionally abused by his family. When he first meets strangers, his first instinct is to ask if they’re going to hurt him, so I felt that the abuse was implied.

A character is described to be an alcoholic by a small child. He is also shown drinking liquor while driving and later pours alcohol on someone's face.
I don't know why multiple people have put that there's no alcoholism in this film.

NO SPIDERS! I'm a severe arachnophobe and was anticipating the spider scene akin to the original (1974). I've seen this movie (2003) twice now and didn't spot a single spider either time.

There's a character who is a double amputee in a wheelchair. There's also two gory amputations shown.

While not specified as cancer, a character is discussed as having some form of degenerative skin disease/disorder on his face. Scars of this are shown briefly/non-graphically in at least one scene.

It's a mixed bag-- the main character survives, but she's clearly incredibly far gone, and the antagonists end up fine.

There are prominent blood/gore scenes throughout the film, whether it be with subtle body horror or overt wounds. A bloody corpse remains in the back seat of a car for half the film. **Please note this is the 2003 Texas Chainsaw, not the original 1970’s version**

There is ABSOLUTELY gun violence??? There is at least one death by gun, and instances where guns are shot at characters. **Please note that this is the 2003 Texas Chainsaw, not the 1970’s original film.**
