The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The Hitchhiker The Hitchhiker is equipped with bindle, camera, pocket-knife, and razor. The Hitchhiker is initially picked up by the van carrying Jerry, Kirk, Pam, Sally and the invalid Franklyn. Bemusing his hosts by acting bizarrely and cutting himself, the Hitchhiker slashes Franklyn’s arm. Summarily ejected from the van, the Hitchhiker smears his blood alongside the side of the vehicle as it drives away. The Hitchhiker is subsequently revealed to be the deranged cannibalistic kin of Leatherface and the Old Man, and is present as Sally, the last survivor of the original group, is bound to a chair at the raucous family dinner table.
