* 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"]].

* WeaponOfChoice: Obvious.Sledgehammers, meat hooks, and (of course) chainsaws show up frequently, demonstrating that the family sees outsiders as nothing more than livestock to be slaughtered and consumed.

to:

* AlternateContinuity: Compared to other horror franchises, this one is especially snarled. Despite their numbering and some BroadStrokes connective elements between them, the sequels are not truly sequels to each other, but to the original film, not to mention the reboots and prequels, all of which results in a number of separate continuities:
** ''The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'' + ''The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2''
** ''The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'' + ''Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III''
** ''Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation''
** ''The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning'' + ''The Texas Chainsaw Massacre''
** ''The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'' + ''Texas Chainsaw 3D''
