The Real Texas Chainsaw Massacre

  • Published 2 years ago

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is an American horror franchise consisting of eight movie, comics, and a video game adaptation of the original film.

But the movies and comics are based on a true story. They were marketed as being based on true events to attract a wider audience and to act as a subtle commentary on the era’s political climate.

Both the original 1974 movie by Tobe Hooper and the 2003 remake by Marcus Nispel are lightly based on the real-life murderer Ed Gein. He is suspected to have taken several victims between 1954 and 1957.

The Texas Chainsaw House is located in Kingsland, Texas, on the grounds of the Antlers Hotel. The Victorian house was featured prominently in the 1974 movie. It was the home of Leatherface and his cannibalistic family.
