The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Corrected entry: When they pick up the girl who later shoots herself, they start driving toward Leatherface's home, the girl goes berserk, and kills herself so she won't have to go back there, yet earlier she was walking in the same direction.

Correction: The reason she is walking back toward the same way is because she doesn't know where she is going. It is a farm area and she can't tell what way is which. This can be seen also when Jessica Biel's character is trying to escape Leatherface. She starts walking back to the store and catches a ride. No one can tell which way is which, especially in a deserted area like that.

Continuity mistake: When Erin and Pepper are trying to hotwire the van, the window is rolled down. After Erin starts the van and twists the wires together, the window is rolled up.

Morgan: What are we gonna do?
Kemper: I don't know... uh... we gotta call the cops, I guess.
Morgan: Um, yeah, on a list of bad ideas, that one goes, way up there. Oh, police officers, please, as you inspect a crime scene, which is now our van, please, ignore the colorful pinata, filled with marijuana, in case you happen to come across it, because it played no part, you know, whatsoever in the demise of this unfortunate, young, woman.

More trivia for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Question: What has happened by the time the police footage is shown? After Erin escaped and killed the "Sheriff", police footage of the area is then shown (at the beginning as well), such as the police collecting evidence and filming a walk-through, as if the house has been abandoned for years, but it's only a day after. What has happened to the rest of the Hewitt family (Luda May, Monty, Tea Lady etc.), with the exception of Leatherface who escaped? How did the police only find out about the Hewitts then?

Answer: Erin must have led the police back to the house and then the Hewitt's were taken away so that way evidence could be collected. They must have thought that Leatherface had escaped and was no longer in the house.
