Added DiffLines:

* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Leatherface drags one of his victims [[note]]POSSIBLY two, one still alive with some wounds, to be technical[[/note]] down a length of road, up a lengthy driveway (so lengthy you can't see the house it leads to from the road), into a house, and down deep into the house's sizable basement, all while leaving a clear one-two foot wide trail of blood for a later character to follow all the way, the trail barely shrinking in size, if at all, the whole way. To make things even more ridiculous, [[spoiler: said victim had been decapitated and Leatherface had left the site of the corpse to give chase to someone else and returned later, hence suggesting that the victim still had enough blood to do that after bleeding out from such a severe wound for possibly over HALF AN HOUR.]]

* ContinuitySnarl: The film is set in 2012 and is a direct sequel to the original. Heather should be close to 40 and Leatherface should be in his 60s, yet they're played by, respectively, 26-year-old Alexandra Daddario and the middle-aged Dan Yeager. This would just be an example of PlayingGertrude if not for the fact that Heather herself is portrayed as a young adult.
