“The ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ film was a big lie. They didn’t damage a single chainsaw”

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a 1974 American slasher film. A joke was posted on Sickipedia and reposted on Twitter on September 21, 2013:

“The ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ film was a big lie.  In 2 hours, the bloke didn’t even damage a single chainsaw.”


Wikipedia: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a 1974 American slasher film directed by Tobe Hooper and written and co-produced by Hooper and Kim Henkel. It stars Marilyn Burns, Paul A. Partain, Edwin Neal, Jim Siedow and Gunnar Hansen, who respectively portray Sally Hardesty, Franklin Hardesty, the hitchhiker, the proprietor, and Leatherface. The film follows a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals while on their way to visit an old homestead. The film was 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; although the character of Leatherface and minor story details were inspired by the crimes of murderer Ed Gein, its plot is largely fictional.
