This happens. How could it not? If there is one thing Leatherface cares about, it’s his dead skin mask collection, and he’s not about to just let his folio of faces rot away in a shoebox somewhere. Every visage in his gruesome collection is lovingly laundered after use, and then hung out in the breeze to dry (never put human flesh in a dryer, folks).
What else can we learn from this pastoral cartoon? That Leatherface doesn’t discriminate, that’s what. He’s got an ethnically diverse collection of severed faces, female as well as male, which he wears proudly in keeping with the progressive politics of rural Texas.
Selection is also based on who wandered up the driveway recently.
Also, did you know that Texas has hills? Unless you’ve been there (you may have been scared off by this movie, which has been officially banned by the Texas Tourism Bureau), you probably thought it was flat as a cow patty. Sure, it’s pretty level in spots, but West Texas has canyons, mountains, a Sasquatch, the whole deal. Cow patties aren’t really flat, either.
Die hard fans of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (clergy) will be quick to point out that Central Texas, where the movie takes place, is actually pretty flat. But I needed to take some artistic license in order to fill the frame of this cartoon. So, um, the family must have relocated after their barbecue truck got audited by the Austin health inspector. Yeah, that’s what happened…
