  • Chop Top: Burn her like a rat! Burn her like a rat!
  • Chop Top: Peel that pig and slice him thick.
  • Drayton: You have one choice, boy: sex or the saw! Sex is, well, nobody knows. But the saw, the saw is family!
  • Lefty: One of those boys was so crazy he sawed his own head off going 90 miles per hour.


  • The "family group shot," as seen in the advertisements, posters and video covers, uses the same positioning as the promotional group shot for the movie The Breakfast Club.
  • A poster can be seen on the wall in the radio station for the band "Fine Young Cannibals."
  • The controversial "butcher cover" of the Beatles album "Yesterday and Today" can be seen hanging in the radio station.
  • When the BBFC notified Cannon that at least 20 minutes, and possibly 25, would have to be trimmed, Cannon aborted its plans for a planned U.K. release in 1990.
  • Tobe Hooper has a cameo frolicking during a party scene

Credits Fun:

  • At the very end of the closing credits, a Texas Chainsaw Massacre logo appears briefly and the end title song is replaced by a loud chainsaw buzz
