* Franklin repeatedly blowing raspberries up at the ceiling seems weird and random, but he's expressing frustration. Kirk and Pam are upstairs, laughing and sounding like they are having sex (they aren't). Franklin can't go up the stairs because of his disability. At that time it probably all caught up with him: the fact he's the only single person in the group (he probably never had a girlfriend and likely can't have sex anyway), that he's disabled, and that nobody really wants him to be along anyway. He's not part of all of this, he's the outsider in every way.

* The worst FridgeHorror of all was revealed on the DVD, where Gunnar Hansen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqPP4UTwmz8 discusses filming conditions in the climactic dinner scene]]. Not only did he ''actually'' cut Marilyn Burns' finger with the knife, but at one point he believed he was meant to literally kill the actress.

* It's truly creepy when you realize that the Sawyer family is carrying on their family tradition of slaughterhouse work, only they are targeting humans exactly as they used to process cattle.
** Even more creepy when you consider the macabre dinner scene. From the perspective of The Sawyer Clan, they are having a formal family dinner.

* Arriving at the Grandfather's house, Franklin examines the blood symbol on the van with a dried up "sausage" in his mouth. As the plot unravels, its obvious on 2nd viewing that Franklin has a dead man's penis in his mouth. Gunnar Hansen and Daniel Pearl point this out on the DVD commentary and the shy director Tobe Hooper laughs it off unconvincingly.

** Which means it was the Hitchhiker who defiled and photographed the corpses from the starting sequence.

* Before arriving at the house Kirk and Pam pass a car graveyard (and in a DeletedScene, a disheveled campfire), suggesting that the kids aren't their first 'live' victims.

** This is further reinforced simply by Franklin's character design. He symbolically represents the entire Sawyer family. He has a knife and a fondness for the slaughterhouse (like Nubbins, the Hitchhiker). He's stocky with curly brown hair (like Leatherface in at least two of his masks), his clothes are even similar in design to Leatherface, as well as being all one color (like Drayton, The Cook). Lastly, he's wheelchair bound (like Grandpa Sawyer).
