In 1974, independent cinema was changed forever when Tobe Hooper's original film hit screens. Since then, the characters have been seen in sequels, reboots, comic books, video games and as toys, Halloween costumes and more.
This sprawling account of the Sawyer/Hewitt family is packed from top to bottom with interviews from John Dugan, Bill Moseley, Caroline Williams, Bob Elmore, R.A. Mihailoff, Jeff Burr, John Luessenhop, Dan Yeager, and Seth M. Sherwood.
But it doesn't stop there! We also have a look at the Texas Chainsaw legacy beyond the films as well as the profound effect The Texas Chain Saw Massacre had on Japanese horror fans, along with a cool Japanese TCM poster gallery!
Then, we go dark in an examination of serial killer Ed Gein (who much of the Leatherface persona is based on) and a medical doctor gives us an up-close (and quite uncomfortable) look at what death by chainsaw would really be like! YIKES!
TWO COVERS TO CHOOSE FROM: Standard and a Special Edition Signed by John Dugan!
