"Can I Get a Side of Ribs With That?'
Massacre for two?
Fans of Tobe Hooper's 1974 ode to pre-Reagan-era family values have for decades debated two major points: One, was the movie based on a true Texas incident? And two, where is the "real" house located? Here's the beef: No, the film wasn't based on any real Texas bloodbath, although bits 'n' pieces of the tales of real-life psychos Ed Gein and Albert Fish "inspired" Kim Henkel's script. As for question number two, that's easy: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre house is now the Kingsland Old Town Grill in Kingsland, Texas. Movie buffs are welcome, and the countrified fixin's are great, although cannibalism, like so many other fine American pastimes these days, is frowned upon.
