THE LOCATION of classic horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is now a motel. Would you stay there?

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a bloody, brutal, hugely influential horror film.

It was a low-budget movie, shot largely on location at a service station on Highway 304, just south of Bastrop, Texas.

Even today, over 40 years after it was released, it still has the power to shock. So visiting its spooky, evocative location might seem like something even serious horror buffs would only want to do quite briefly.
