The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

Corrected entry: When Dean and Eric are tied up and the Sheriff comes in and sprays them both with water, after he turns the water off we see Dean and he is soaked. A second later we see a close-up of his face and his hair is completely dry.

Correction: I have just watched the scene three times and his hair is still damp.


Corrected entry: In a scene close to the end of the movie Leatherface's first victim (I think it was his boss) is shown. Wouldn't the body have some very obvious signs of decomposition?

Correction: The body was there for no more than one day, there would have been no decomposition whatsoever. I think you have the time-frame a little wrong.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, the sheriff picks up R. Lee Ermey's character to arrest Leatherface, he mentions to being the last of the police force in the town. After R. Lee Ermey's character kills the sheriff and takes over the identity, he mentions that he had just killed the entire police force. However at the end of the movie, Leatherface smashes the car he is in into a police officer, killing him. This takes place just a few miles from the farmhouse. Where did this police officer come from if the guy at the beginning of the movie was the last on the police force?


Correction: Whoever had phoned for the police could have gotten through an emergency service in a different area. Just because the police were in this certain town, it doesn't mean they were part of the actual towns department. Police from the next town could have easily been called in, especially for such a large car crash as seen at the end of the film.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Leatherface kills a man in the slaughter house. The police officer then shows up at the house saying Leatherface had killed a man. Near the end of the movie, they return to the slaughter house and the dead man is undisturbed where he had been killed.

Correction: The police officer never said anything about moving the body - because this officer was the only unit of police force in the town, as everybody has moved away, and also he never got a chance to call for anybody out of the area.
