Gunnar Hansen’s “CHAIN SAW CONFIDENTIAL” gets a trailer


The man behind the original mask of Leatherface finally tells the complete story of the making of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE—with the help of many colleagues—in an upcoming book, for which a trailer has hit the web.

CHAINSAWCONFIDENTIALTRNEWSChronicle Books posted the video preview for CHAIN SAW CONFIDENTIAL, featuring on-camera words from Hansen about the book, which comes out October 1 (retail price: $24.95). In its pages, Hansen, his co-stars and crew from Tobe Hooper’s classic recall the terrors and triumphs of the low-budget shoot in revelatory and sometimes hilarious detail, and also explore the movie’s lasting legacy, fan reaction and classic status. Hansen will be promoting the book at personal appearances and conventions across the U.S. between now and the end of September; you can read comments from Hansen on CHAIN SAW CONFIDENTIAL here, find more information on it here and look for a review in Fango #327, on sale next month.
