Do you like horror films? Did you watch the 1974 classic horror film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre? Personally I stray from things I cannot unsee. For you horror flick genre lovers, here is a refresher!
Are you brave enough?
After you view the official trailer below, do you think you’ll be brave enough to eat BBQ and stay in one of the creepy cabins behind the legendary gas station?
Located right off Highway 304 in Bastrop, Texas, is the scariest gas station in pop culture history and a Facebook landmark. The site has been restored to original quality. In 2016, the proprietors held the official grand reopening. And yes, they added four eerie cabins on the property so true Texas Chain Saw Massacre fans can spend a night. No thanks!
Check out their Facebook page to view videos that showcase the main character from the film wielding a chain saw. Yep, fun for the whole family – YIKES! All jokes and eerieness aside, this would definitely make for a fun stop on your road trip this year.
