My family's always been in meat.
~ Nubbins' most famous quote

Nubbins Sawyer is the secondary antagonist from the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. He is a member of the cannibalistic Sawyer Family. He is the younger brother of Drayton Sawyer, the older brother of Jedidiah "Leatherface" Sawyer, and the twin of Paul "Chop Top" Sawyer. He first appears in the film hitchiking home and is picked up by Sally, Franklin, Pam, Jerry, and Kirk.

He was portrayed by Edwin Neal.


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

While in their van, Nubbins shows them horrific picture of animals he slaughtered. Then cuts his hand with Franklin's knife and takes his picture with a camera and tried to sell it to him. When Franklin refuses to buy the picture, Nubbins blows it up with gunpowder, and then slices Franklin's arm with a straight razor. He is thrown out of the van, but manages to mark a pattern on it with the blood before the four can speed away.

He next appears much later after all of the four but Sally have been killed by Leatherface. He helps Drayton tie up the kidnapped Sally and helps Grandpa Sawyer drink some blood from her finger. While the family eats dinner with Sally tied to an armchair with real arms, she tries to convince Drayton to stop the others. Nubbins reacts to this by revealing his contempt for Drayton, revealing that Nubbins and Leatherface do all the killing and grave robbing for meat, and that Drayton is just a cook. After dinner, Nubbins suggests that they let Grandpa do Sally in. They untie her, and Nubbins holds her over a large metal tub to catch the blood. Grandpa is given a sledgehammer to kill Sally with, but keeps missing. Nubbins becomes impatient and tries to grab the hammer, releasing his grip on Sally, who manages to shake herself loose and run out of the house. Nubbins chases her into the nearby road, only to be run over by an eighteen-wheeler truck.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

Nubbins makes a brief appearance as a skeleton that his family has pieced back together and Leatherface uses as a puppet.


  • According to Nubbins' actor Edwin Neal, the conditions on the set of the original film were so awful, he said it was worse than his time serving in the Vietnam war.
