Texas Chainsaw Massacre gas station becomes tourist destination
Who will survive and what will be left of them? This slogan from the classic 1974 slasher Chainsaw Massacre is, in my opinion, the best slogan of any movie, ever. It’s very rhythmic, it’s evocative and it’s downright scary.
It’s no wonder to me that this film has always retained so much love and dedication from fans of the genre. Since then he has informed almost every slasher movie. And it also made chainsaws a mainstay of haunted houses in Texas. I’ve seen people hear that unmistakable roaring sound and run away screaming. Personally, I love the smell of a chainsaw burning gasoline in the cold fall air.
Gasoline. The supposed lack of gasoline at the gas station is what drove the teens in the film to their fate. They still had questionable snacks there. . .
Chainsaw Massacre was shot on a low budget in real locations in central Texas. Fans of the film have stopped by this gas station in Bastrop since the film’s release, but now you can do a lot more than just take a picture. You can turn it into an entire vacation:
The original gas station with barbecue featured in the cult classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is now a weekend destination, with four rustic cabins (with a shared bathroom), a campsite and, of course, lots of smoked and gravy meats.
If you’re ready to book a night or two, do so as early as possible – cabins are incredibly in demand. Or you can just stop by and enjoy the gift shop and barbecue for really reasonable prices. in the meantime, enjoy a ‘sneak peek’ of The Gas Station.
