The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

When five teenagers try to have the time of their lives road tripping across Texas, they come across a hitchhiker covered in blood. They pick up the girl who then blows her own head off. Now having a corpse in their car, they try to call the police from a gas station. While waiting, they discover a house in the middle of no where and begin to be systematically hunted down by the monsterous cannibal family that lives within. The one doing the killing is the psychotic Leather Face who's weapon of choice is a chainsaw. Bloody, Gory, Chilling. Based on the real life Ed Gein who wore women's skin as clothes.

Factual error: This movie states that it is during the year 1973, yet in the beginning of the movie when they are driving in the van they are listening to "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This song was not released publicly until 1974. (00:03:10)

More trivia for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Question: What has happened by the time the police footage is shown? After Erin escaped and killed the "Sheriff", police footage of the area is then shown (at the beginning as well), such as the police collecting evidence and filming a walk-through, as if the house has been abandoned for years, but it's only a day after. What has happened to the rest of the Hewitt family (Luda May, Monty, Tea Lady etc.), with the exception of Leatherface who escaped? How did the police only find out about the Hewitts then?

Answer: Erin must have led the police back to the house and then the Hewitt's were taken away so that way evidence could be collected. They must have thought that Leatherface had escaped and was no longer in the house.
