List Of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Characters

The Sawyers (renamed the Hewitts in the reboot and its prequel) are a large, Southern American family of cannibalistic butchers and serial killers in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, who live in the Texas backwoods, where they abduct, torture, murder, and eat stranded motorists. The family uses booby traps and man-traps, such as bear traps and spike traps, to capture or kill victims, as the family engages in human hunting also. The family also owns a gas station, where they sell the meat from the victims as barbecue and chili. It has been confirmed in the crossover comic book series Jason vs. Leatherface, and in various interviews and commentaries on the original films, that the Sawyer family did engage in inbreeding, something that was heavily implied in the third film, though in the recent remake continuation of the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre comics and the film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, the Hewitt family were only implied at having engaged in the act of inbreeding, first in the Wildstorm comics and again in the movie, when a captive named Chrissie confronts the Hewitts about it. As seen in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, the remake & the prequel, the family (both Sawyer and Hewitt) are fond of leaving bodies in mass body pits or mass graves in various parts of Texas. The inspiration for the family was real killer Ed Gein, whom the film makers also based Leatherface on, this being confirmed on the audio commentary for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre by director Tobe Hooper.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, characters, massacre, list and/or texas:

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    Philosophy is written in this grand book—I mean the universe—
    which stands continually open to our gaze, but it cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and interpret the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it.
    Galileo Galilei (1564–1642)

    It is hard, I submit, to loathe bloodshed, including war, more than I do, but it is still harder to exceed my loathing of the very nature of totalitarian states in which massacre is only an administrative detail.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Love’s boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and it’s useless to draw up a list of mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.
    Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893–1930)

    Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word. And there’s an opening convey of generalities. A Texan outside of Texas is a foreigner.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)
