Sad news here…
Actor Gunnar Hansen, best known for playing the masked chainsaw wheeling killer Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre in 1974, has died at the age of 68 of pancreatic cancer.
Although Hansen’s character on the big screen was responsible for giving millions nightmares, he was a gentle giant and a gentleman in person. Our staff had a chance to work with him at the Mad Monster Parties and witnessed thousands of people wanting to meet him. He always conducted himself humbly with them and brought smiles to their faces.
Our prayers goes out to his family and friend. He will live forever through his movies.
