The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

In 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre shocked the world when Leatherface burst onto the move scene.  Leatherface is the killer behind the chainsaw who lived with his horrifying family in a dilapidated old farm house.  The move instantly sparked a franchise that spans across 9 movies (some, better than others).

Over the course of the years many actors have portrayed the infamous Leatherface, and his stunts have been portrayed by various stuntmen.  One of these folks who were underneath the Leatherface mask will be in Owensboro this October!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

In 1986 fans of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre got a double dose of Leatherface when The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 was released.  The movie's premise was a little different than the first, but the main killer remained the same, Leatherface.

A brief synopsis of the plot from IMDB states:

Radio DJ Vanita 'Stretch' Brock's open request night is plagued by the annoying phone pranking of two road tripping, party-hard, hoodlums, but things take a disturbing turn when the hoodlums meet their demise at the hands of familiar chainsaw wielding maniacs. With the entire gruesome ordeal recorded on tape, Stretch seeks out the help of a former Texas Marshall who's on a personal quest of vengeance against this family of cannibals.

One of the many actors behind the Leatherface mask is Bob Elmore, who will be in Owensboro this October.

7 Weapons You Can Legally Own in Indiana That Aren't Guns

Anything can be a weapon if used as such. Large rocks, baseball bats, golf clubs, hammers, etc., etc. However, those objects aren't designed to be used as weapons. These seven, on the other hand, are, and you are completely within your rights to have them in Hoosier State.
