Horrors are films that are supposed to make you scared. They can feature all sorts of things, like ghosts, or serial killers, or creepy clowns, or weird ghost children. The plots can vary but they often feature frightening situations for a person or group of people. They can have a lot of tense moments and make you jump. Often they are really gory and can involve a lot of people being killed in gruesome ways. Even though horrors are quite horrible to watch, they seem to be a very popular genre of film.

Why do people enjoy watching horror movies?

The film ends with the monster destroying the lab with him and her in it while Henry and his wife escape.

Leatherface
Pair of dimensioned drawings of Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre horror film

Leatherface is the main antagonist of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, even though he commits his murders alongside his family. Leatherface wears a mask made of human skin, which is where he gets his name from. Leatherface was reportedly based off of Wisconsin killer Ed Gein, who also wore a mask made from skin. In the movies, Leatherface’s main weapons are a chainsaw and a sledgehammer and, as well as murdering his victims, Leatherface was a cannibal and would eat them too. Director Tobe Hooper has noted that Leatherface kills out of fear, rather than malice.

Leatherface, portrayed by Gunnar Hansen in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), is 6 foot 4 inches (1.93 m) tall.
