Texas Chain Saw Massacre Director Tobe Hooper

Who will survive and what will be left of them? That is iconic line that graces the movie poster of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, one of the most visceral films ever created; a film that lives on in both infamy and reverence to this day. Its director, horror legend Tobe Hooper, died yesterday in Sherman Oaks, CA, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner who confirmed the news to Variety. No cause of death has been determined yet. He was 74.

Born in Austin, Texas, Hooper made his seminal masterpiece in 1974 for less than $300,000. The film, based on the serial-killing cannibal Ed Gein, tells the story of five friends on a drive through rural Texas to explore the home of the grandfather of Sally (Marilyn Burns) and wheelchair-bound Franklin (Paul A. Partain). They end up encountering a family of cannibals, including the human skin-masked, chain saw-wielding Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen).

Gunnar Hansen

Gunnar Hansen, who played the iconic killer Leatherface in the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre, died yesterday from pancreatic cancer at his home in Maine, according to the LA Times. He was 68.

Hansen was born in Reykjavik, Iceland and moved to the United States at 5. His family moved to Texas where he grew up and attended the University of Texas, studying English and Scandinavian Studies. He was a hulking figure and was cast by Tobe Hooper as the flesh face, chainsaw-wielding psychopath in the 1974 horror classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Marilyn Burns, Star Of ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,’ Found Dead At Age 65

Marilyn Burns

Actress Marilyn Burns, best known to horror fans as the heroine of the original 1974 horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, has been found dead at her home in Houston, TX, according to TMZ. She was 65 years old.

The cause of death has yet to be determined, but it has been reported that Burns was found by a family member.

One of the original scream queens, Burns’ gutsy performance as Sally Hardesty in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the film’s unsung virtues. The actress managed to convey genuine terror in its most harrowing scenes (though the squalid, brutal filming conditions probably played a big hand in that) and her lungs got the kind of workout that few horror heroines could match at their best moments. Chainsaw‘s shocking impact and box office success failed to catapult Burns to film stardom, but she still find roles regularly throughout the four decades that followed.

Movie Review: Texas Chainsaw 3D

Texas Chainsaw 3D PosterTexas Chainsaw 3D
Directed by John Luessenhop
Written by Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus
Starring: Alexandra Daddario, Dan Yeager, Tremaine Neverson, Tania Raymonde, Bill Moseley, Paul Rae
Lionsgate Entertainment
Rated R | 92 Minutes
Release Date: January 4th, 2013

Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers), Texas Chainsaw 3D feels like the kind of slasher sequel New Line Cinema would have released in the ’90s.

Reminiscent of movies like Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday and Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, Texas Chainsaw 3D is a derivative, low-budget horror flick that digs up a mass grave of dead horses and beats them senseless with all matter of hammers, meat hooks, and chainsaws.

After 2003’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and its 2006 prequel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Platinum Dunes decided to abandon the franchise. Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate picked up the rights to the series subsequently, and planned a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 film – even though there are already three sequels to that film.

And I do mean ‘direct’ sequel – Texas Chainsaw 3D picks up minutes after the original, with police responding to a call from the pickup truck driver who rescued Sally Hardesty. Enraged and slightly drunk, the townspeople of Newt, Texas form a mob, burn down the old Sawyer homestead, and kill the family – even poor ol’ hammer-wielding grandpa. As one red-blooded redneck so elegantly puts it, “Eye for an eye, Sheriff. You can’t get around the Good Book!”

Texas Chainsaw 3D Poster Header

Successful horror films like SAW, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre find a way to keep their franchises alive. Sequels, prequels, spin-offs, and reboots, anything you can think of, it’s been done to your favorite horror franchise. The new Texas Chainsaw 3D film that hits theaters early next year will be just another example of a franchise that just refuses to die, no matter how many times the killers die and the body count stacks.

Texas Chainsaw 3D will follow the events of the original film that was released in 1974. A young woman inherits a home, so she decides to take her friends along to see what exactly she got. Little does she know that the house is connected to the notorious family involved in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. If anything, the trailer shows why it’s dangerous to get high.

Watch the trailer here below.

Texas Chainsaw 3D Poster Header

Though January is usually a dumping ground for bad films or sleeper Liam Neeson movies, Lionsgate hopes to drum up some excitement with a new vision of Texas Chainsaw 3D.

The film may have changed the title (dropping Massacre), but it is still keeping with the spirit of it, and it will also be in 3D. Now the studio has released a new poster for your viewing pleasure, and it will make you glad that the Sawyer family hasn’t carved your face off yet.

Conan

About a month ago, we were informed that Stargate: Atlantis star Jason Momoa would be taking on the title role in Marcus Nispel‘s new reboot, Conan. That same day, Latino Review also had a little inside scoop that none other than Mickey Rourke was offered the role of Conan’s father, Corin (Read: Jason Momoa Is Marcus Nispel’s New Conan The Barbarian; Mickey Rourke To Play His Father?).

This scoop has proven to be very much legit, and it has now been confirmed that Rourke is currently in negotiations to take on the role. When the movie comes together, it will follow the barbarian Conan as he sets off on a quest to find those responsible for the slaughtering of his people. The role was first made famous in 1982 by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie Conan the Barbarian, and then once again in 1984’s Conan the Destroyer.
