Revealing mistake: After the crazy man cuts his own hand, he laughs and waves the knife. Watch carefully and you can see the hose behind the blade the blood came through.

Continuity mistake: As the teenagers pull up into the gas station, look at the position of the gas pumps hose and its shadow. In the next shot the gas pumps shadow has vanished and the gas pumps hose is positioned differently.

Trivia: Many praise the movie for being well acted with such a low budget. Two performers that are singled out are Marilyn Burns and Paul Partain, who play Sally and Franklyn. In the scenes where they squabble, the acting is quite impressive. But was it really acting? The two performers, in reality, could not stand each other.

More trivia for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre


Question: In the trivia it says that the name Leatherface is only said once or twice. Well, I can't recall the name being used at all. What scenes were the name used?

Chosen answer: The name "Leatherface" is used in the scene set in the hotel, and the waterfall scene. The grandmother says "leatherface" right after she says "Maryana, crank up the chain saw" in the waterfall scene. She actually says it in a whispering tone, so you have to turn the volume up to the max.

Question: What happens to the guy in the yellow shirt, who hits Leatherface in the face with the wrench? The main character leaves with the guy in the truck but the yellow shirt guy doesn't. And we don't see him get killed, it just goes to Leatherface doing his dance. Are we supposed to assume that he dies?

Chosen answer: The yellow shirt guy keeps running off screen while the main character jumps into the back of the truck. Since Leatherface's attention was solely on her, it's assumed the guy survives seeing as no one left in the Family is in pursuit.
