While the film's introduction and ending are tailored to appear to be based on a series of true events, the film's plot is a complete work of fiction. The film is inspired by the murderous acts of Ed Gein, a Wisconsin-based serial killer that was infamous for exhuming corpses as well as decorating his home with the body parts of his victims. Gein also confessed to wearing the tanned skin of women as a suit.
Andrew Bryniarski (Leatherface) states: "In my estimation, Leatherface is like a beaten dog -- he was ostracized and ridiculed, and treated harshly by his peers. The psychological damage they inflicted was immense -- there's no chance for him." Terrence Evans (Uncle Monty), says, "I think there was a chance Thomas' life could have been different. But the teasing he suffered, coupled with a bad temper, and following Hoyt around like a puppy dog, left room for Hoyt to get absolute control."
There's a homage to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) regarding each film's leading ladies Erin (2003) and Sally (original). In the remake, Erin pulls out a knife to pick a lock. When asked where she got it from, she replies "from my brother." In the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Sally's brother Franklin is obsessed with his knife, and at one point in the film gives it to Sally. She never returns it.
Gunnar Hansen was asked to play the role of the trucker in the end of the film.
