Movie Urban Legends

'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (1974)

Legend: "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" is based on a true story.

True or False?: This legend is FALSE.

“Texas Chain Saw Massacre” producer Tobe Hopper intentionally misled audiences into believing the movie was based on a true story, saying that it was a response to people being "lied to by the government about things that were going on all over the world.”

In reality, Hopper based many of the movies scenes off brutal events he saw on the local news. Filmmakers eventually admitted that the movie’s events were not true, but even that didn’t stop a sequel from being made. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Vortex)
