It’s always sad when a location from a classic movie falls into a state of disrepair, which is precisely what’s happened with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre‘s iconic gas station over the years. But one fan has taken it upon himself to restore the locale, and he’s got grand plans for it. Read on!
As reported by Dread friend Josh Millican over on The Blood-Shed, longtime Chain Saw fan Roy Rose purchased the dilapidated Texas gas station this past year, and with the help of a bona fide horror icon, he’s set to turn the property into the ultimate horror fan destination.
After purchasing the property, Roy reached out to Ari Lehman, known for being the first person to ever play Jason Voorhees, and together the two are working on making Roy’s lofty dream come true.
“Having the unique honor of being the first Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th always brings me unexpected opportunities like this,” said Lehman.
