No, it's a pure work of fiction. Despite the disclaimer at the beginning of the movie that it's based on a real story, this is itself a fiction, designed to make it look like it's a drama-documentary and probably used as a ploy to get more people to go and see the film.

The movie, along with Psycho which was released in 1960, was based upon the case of Winsconsin farmer Ed Gein, a psychotic maniac who was convicted of murdering two women in 1954 and '57, was suspected of killing three more whose remains were never found, and who exhumed the bodies of other people from local graveyards in order to make clothing and keepsakes from their bones and skin- one such was his own mother Augusta. He ate some of his victim's body parts, kept their bones and other remains around his house, and kept their disembowelled torso's hanging in one of his outhouses. But he didn't use a chainsaw to kill them, he shot them instead with a .22 calibre rifle. Gein died in a Madison mental hospital in July 1984 aged 77, of a heart attack brought on by cancer.

But no 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' ever happened in real life.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a fictional story. The events depicted in the movie never actually happened. There has never been a "chainsaw massacre" in Texas committed by a deranged and cannibalistic family. The so-called "real story" behind the movie -- the Ed Gein story -- didn't happen in Texas, didn't happen with a chainsaw, and wasn't a massacre.



Leatherface is not a real person. He is a fictional character from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies. Although Tobe Hooper got the idea for Leatherface from the real life serial killer Ed Gein, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies could not be more different from the real story of Ed Gein. Ed Gein was real, but Leatherface and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are not.


The movie The Texas Chainsaw Massascre does have a chainsaw in it.. thus the title.


No, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre is not a real event, not was it based on one fully. However it was inspired by the serial killer Ed Gein.


No, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre never really happened, but the character Leatherface was inspired by the serial killer Ed Gein.

I assume you must be referring to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. No, it is not a real event. It was based roughly on the real life serial killer Ed Gein, but Ed never killed anyone with a chainsaw.


No, because there is no real Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's a fictional story, not a true event in US history. See the Related Question below.


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is not real, it's just a horror movie. And Leatherface is not real too because he's a fictional character based on Ed Gein, The Butcher of Plainfield. And the movie is on Texas by it's name.


The fictional character Leatherface was played by Gunnar Hansen in the original 1974 film. There is no "real" Texas Chainsaw Massacre killer, since the Texas Chainsaw Massacre never actually happened. See the Related Question below.
