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.
