Movie Quote(s):
  • Franklin: If I have any more fun today I don't think I can take it!
  • Franklin: They just shoot a bolt in their head, and then retract it. It's just BOOM-shht-BOOM-shht. Sally: Franklin, I like meat. Please change the subject!
  • Franklin: [refering to the Hitchhiker] I think we just picked up Dracula.
  • Old Man: I just can't take no pleasure in killing. There's just some things you gotta do. Don't mean you have to like it.
  • Old Man: Those girls... those girls don't wanna go messin' round no old house!
Movie Trivia:
  • The actress whose character was hung up on a meat hook was actually held up by a nylon cord that went between her legs, causing a great deal of pain.
  • During the dinner scene towards the end of the film, when Leatherface cuts the girl's finger, he actually does cut her finger because they couldn't get the fake blood to come out of the tube behind the blade
  • The movie wasn't released in Australia until the early 1980s.
  • Director Tobe Hooper claims to have got the idea for the film while standing in the hardware section of a crowded store. While thinking of a way to get out through the crowd, he spotted the chainsaws.
  • When it was first released, the film was so horrifying that people actually walked out on sneak previews for it.
