A truly influential movie and pioneer of the ‘slasher’ genre, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was brought to life using real-life locations as part of its significantly small budget. But that low budget didn’t prevent the film from grossing over $30 million in its run! Additionally, the film has inspired many remakes, adaptations, prequels, sequels, and other slasher-style movies in the years since its debut.
Bastrop, Texas is home to the creepy little gas station that was an integral part of the 1974 movie where a group of friends stopped to fill up, only to find what horror really occupied the surrounding buildings and farmland.
The new owners of the station have taken a huge step forward in preserving a giant piece of American film history by restoring the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Gas Station to it’s original quality. But they aren’t going to be only selling gas here – you can actually spend the night!
Yup, that’s right folks, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Gas Station is now accepting reservations beginning this summer where they will have a grand opening featuring one of the stars from the original movie!
The interior of the gas station has already been gutted and they are starting the rebuilding process while adding several little cabins and a bath house around the property.
If y’all are anxious to add a little fright to your summer road trip (and snag a piece of true Texas pop culture history) give the reservations line a call and get ready for a one-of-a-kind experience!
The station’s phone number is listed as (512) 321-SAWS and you can check the restoration progress out on their Facebook page!
