Horror fans are about to give a huge thank you to Roy Rose! Last summer, he became the owner of the Gulf Oil/BBQ joint in the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre. He is turning the property into a horror themed restaurant; music venue, stores and you guessed it…overnight cabins.

How did he get this iconic horror landmark? In a recent interview he said, “I called the previous owner a few years back to see if she was willing to sell. She said ‘No’ but I left her my phone number anyway. I know this sounds crazy, but on my birthday this year, she called me back asking if I was still interested. No lie!”

It’s located in Bastrop, Texas and Rose said that the new attraction place for horror fans will not be open for another few months.

What do you think of this?
