Texas Chainsaw Massacre Slaughterhouse

Field review by the editors.

Taylor, Texas

A slaughterhouse is scary enough on its own, but what about the one that starred in the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre?" The Taylor Meat Company allowed filmmakers of the 2003 cult film remake and 2006 prequel ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The Beginning") to shoot at night in and around their facility, which is still an operating meat processing business.

The old brick building is visible from US Highway 79. Fans pull off into the cracked concrete parking lot and snap exteriors, or take a peek into the customer area.

Taylor Meat Company produces the Tip-Top brand of meats, marketed by a cartoon pig in a top hat and tuxedo.
