Geo-RoadTrip: On Location #21 - TX Chainsaw Massacre

As we continued Geo-RoadTrip 2012 our travels led us to Leander, TX which was one of the filming locations for the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie, considered to be one of the most influential films in the genre.

Sure, horror movies aren't our typical blog fodder but geography and Texana usually are so it's time for another installment of "On Location." 

The grisly "warning" scene at the beginning of the film was shot at Leander's Bagdad Cemetery.

The cemetery is also used in another scene at the beginning of the film.  The scene doesn't show too many recognizable landmarks but you can see a tombstone marked "Pickle" in the film which is still there.

After that quick stop we pressed on to our next stop.  More pictures and video coming soon!
