After being closed for many years, the Last Chance gas station will reopen as “We Slaughter Barbecue”
If you fancy a side of blood-curdling horror with your BBQ ribs and coleslaw, then we have the spot for you.
An iconic feature of the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” set is being transformed into the aptly-named “We Slaughter Barbecue” joint, according to the Guardian.
Described as a “horror barbecue resort,” the new eatery will open this summer at the building that held the Last Chance gas station in the film — also known as Bilbo’s Texas Landmark — in Bastrop, Texas.
Fans of the 1974 Tobe Hooper-directed blood fest will recall that the filling station and barbecue joint was run by Drayton Sawyer, the head of a family of cannibals and a man who had a habit of serving customers human chili.
After falling into disrepair and being closed for many years, the venue is set to be reopened by Ohio businessman Roy Rose, the longtime “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” fan who bought the property last year.
According to the Guardian, he has also brought actor Ari Lehman, who played the first Jason Voorhees in the 1980 film “Friday the 13th,” on board as a partner.
“We’re going to build a horror barbecue resort,” film-lover Rose told local NBC affiliate KXAN last year. “We’re going to put cabins in the back for all the fans who want to come and stay the night.”
“It’ll be a safe, and fun and scary place for families and everybody to come and have a good time,” the owner added, saying the redesigned venue will include an outdoor stage for musical acts and a shop filled with scary movie memorabilia.
Grasse plays Lizzy, a young nurse at a mental hospital who’s kidnapped by a group of violent teenagers and taken on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman (Dorff) out for revenge, one of the teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster known as Leatherface.
