The Leatherface Tour, Part One

Last week, I was nosing around online and found directions to a few of the locations used in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, namely the Leatherface house, the slaughterhouse, and the old mill used in the movie. 

Now, the original Chainsaw Massacre is an important part of Austin’s history, and I was always happy that they chose to film the remake here.  It almost makes up for the fact that the remake wasn’t that great a flick.

Anyway, with The Late Late Show back in my garage and an itch to get out and ride, I took off last Saturday with a couple of google maps and spent a few hours cruising the areas north and east of Austin until I had some pictures of some of the locations.  The trip cost me about five bucks in gas, a far cry from the $299 a website I found will charge for a similar tour.

Later this summer, I’ll try to get out and snap some pictures of the original Chainsaw Massacre locations.  In the meantime, here are some of the pictures I took.
