  • Executive Meddling: Averted in the original. Tobe Hooper avoided excessive gore and showed the violence in quick cuts because he was originally aiming for a PG rating(!) The censors were pleased. The other films in the franchise are a different story altogether...
    • Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III was completely destroyed by the censors and the executives.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Viggo Mortensen in the third film, as well as Renee Zellweger and Matthew Mcconaughey in the fourth, not that they'll admit it.
    • Also, John Larroquette as the narrator in the original - one of his earliest roles. He reprised the role in the remake and its prequel.
    • Dennis Hopper stars in the second film.
  • Jossed: A lot of background stuff introduced in the novelization of the remake is rendered non-canon by The Beginning.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Michael Bay once stated the he only produced the remake due to the name appeal alone.
