Leatherface is a fictional character in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre horror-film series and its spin-offs. He wears masks made of human skin (hence his name) and engages in murder and cannibalism alongside his inbred family. Leatherface first appeared in the first film in the series (1974) and in its six subsequent continuations and remakes. Wisconsin killer Ed Gein, who wore a mask made of human skin, was reportedly the inspiration for the character. He is the considered to be the main antagonist of the franchise due to him driving most of the movies plot and appearing in all movies even though he takes orders from his older family members.
