* ShoutOut: The poster for Part 2 shows the Sawyer family in poses similar to the cast in the poster for ''The Breakfast Club'', while the trailer for Part 3 riffs on the Excalibur legend; specifically, the Lady of the Lake throws out a massive looking chainsaw to a nearby Leatherface, and said saw is activated by a lightning bolt.

** In ''TCM III'', Leatherface himself has a leg brace, which may or may not be a nod to the moment in the original when he ends up getting cut by his own chainsaw.

* BroadStrokes: The loose connections between the sequels.


Added DiffLines:

* WolverinePublicity: Leatherface is heavily featured and is the most well known character from the franchise, despite the fact that, as a developmentally-disabled, speechless man with no motivation or goals outside of blindly doing his family's bidding, he is perhaps the least interesting member of the family.

* HillbillyHorrors: One of the best known examples.



* MeaningfulName: Leatherface's CannibalClan are known as the Sawyers in the original series and the Hewitts in the remake series. The former name basically means "those who saw things apart", while the latter is a [[PunnyName portmanteau of "hew it", which means "cut it apart"]].
