Evil wears many faces.
The film takes place in 2012. At the beginning of the film, Heather Miller is shown to have been a baby in 1973. This would make Heather at least 39 years old. However her character is obviously much younger than that (her actress Alexandra Daddario was only 26 years old at the time of filming).

During the opening standoff, a Dodge Diplomat squad car is visible. Diplomats were produced from the 1980s into the early-'90s.

The date that the farmhouse was burned and the family was killed was August 19th. However, as seen later in the film when Heather is looking at the newspaper, the story was on the front page of the paper dated August 19th. The event would have occurred after the newspaper was printed and distributed.

When they pick up Darryl it's raining heavily. But when the camera points inside the car, it can be seen through the car window that there is no rain behind the car.

At the beginning of the movie, when the Sheriff arrives at the house, the flashing blue police lights on his vehicle change between on and off between shots.

When Kenny is dragged into the basement he drags the carpet on the stairs down with him. After Heather escapes from the basement a few minutes later the carpet is back on the stairs when she runs up them

Factual Mistake
When Heather is going through the evidence box at the Police station she finds a copy of the town newspaper. When she flips it over to read the headline the date is only partially there. August 19 is on there but the year is not.

Factual Mistake
When a character uses FaceTime to show other characters what he sees in the Sawyer house, his iPhone clearly focuses (indicated by the blue square in the center of the screen) which does not happen during a video call, indicating that he was only on his camera, and switched to it every time he was re shown.
Marilyn Burns, who played Sally Hardesty in the original film, plays Verna in this. This film and Butcher Boys were Marilyn's first movie roles in 28 years (excluding an uncredited Cameo in Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation).

In 2007, Platinum Dunes announced they were abandoning the series following The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. In 2009, Twisted Pictures negotiated a multi-picture deal with Bob Kuhn and Kim Henkel, who own the rights to the series.

Originally, a plan for a new trilogy was pitched. The films would be released out of chronological order, with the second film coming out first and being set almost entirely in a hospital. The next film would be a prequel explaining the events that led up to the hospital scenario. The third film would complete the storyline. Fearing it was too ambitious and risky, the producers opted for a follow up to the original instead.

It was 106 degrees in Shreveport on the day that the fire stunts were performed inside the burning Sawyer house at the beginning of the film.

Gunnar Hansen, who portrayed Leatherface in the 1974 film, portrays a relative, Boss Sawyer, in the beginning of the film.

John Dugan, who portrayed Grandpa in the 1974 film, reprises his role in the opening scene of this film.

In the opening scene, Bill Moseley, who portrayed Chop Top in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, portrays Drayton Sawyer, the cook from the first two films.

This film features 4 actors returning from previous installments, surpassing the record of 3 set by Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.

Thom Barry's character, Sheriff Hooper, is named after Tobe Hooper, who wrote and directed the first two films.

Not screened in advance for critics.

A draft of the script had Leatherface's name being Jebadiah Sawyer. However, this was later changed to Jedidiah Sawyer. In the 2003 remake, Jedidiah is the name of a young member of the Hewitt family.

Has the distinction of featuring a total three different actors portraying Leatherface: Gunnar Hansen as the one from the archive footage, Sam McKinzie as a young Leatherface, and Dan Yeager as the main one.

Filmed primarily in July and August 2011, but unreleased until January 2013.

In May 2011, Lions Gate announced that it would be partnering with Nu Image to produce the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and that John Luessenhop would direct the film.

Just as in the original, the first victim is bludgeoned to death while wandering the house alone.
