About the Texas chainsaw massacre

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the best horror franchises of all time.

But did you know it is based on true events?

Directed by Tobe Hooper, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre tells the story of Sally Hardesty and her brother.

They run out of gas while travelling with friends in Texas and are forced to stop at a creepy looking house in the middle of nowhere.

In true horror movie fashion, the ominous home turns out to belong to a family of cannibals with a love for cold-blooded murder.

One of these killers is a chainsaw-wielding giant wearing a mask of human skin – Leatherface.

As you can guess, a murder spree unfolds, however much to the cannibal’s dismay, Sally escapes the terrorising experience.

The film was marketed as being based on true events to attract a wider audience.

In addition, it acted as a subtle commentary on the era’s political climate. 

Hooper said that the gory film was based on true events from the horrors he witnessed in newspapers during the Vietnam war.

Also, America’s Serial Killer Phenomenon that dominated media and public attention.
