Let' get rid of the scene where it is revealed that Leatherface' weapon of choice before the chainsaw was the salad spinner. It is confusing how such a device could be used as an effective weapon, even though you've devoted the next 60 pages of the script here trying to explain it.
Leatherface is just a name. He shouldn't be so concerned about getting his face wet.
Okay, here you have a teenaged Leatherface on his first date and the movie he takes his girlfriend to see is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. This is baffling on many levels.
This is the third time Leatherface' chainsaw has crapped out just before a kill and he' kicked himself for "not buying a Black & Decker." First of all, if these must be the first instances in which Leatherface has ever talked, it seems the words should be much more monumental. Second, while it' obvious you're going for product placement dollars, we doubt that Black & Decker is going to be happy with its products being touted for their killing effectiveness.
You've taken great pains to show how primary and secondary influences shaped Leatherface into a killer, so why in this scene, do we find out that Leatherface has a rare optical condition where he can't tell the difference between people and overgrown trees?
