RIP

Oh my God that's awful. RIP Hansen. I'm going to have to do a Chainsaw rewatch, and maybe the doco on it as well. He's quite articulate and interesting.
The horror community just keeps taking hits with the loss of these legends.
RIP.
His first scene as Leatherface in Chainsaw, where he bashes Kirk in the head, drags him through the door, and slams it shut. I've watched thousands of horror movies from the time I was a kid, but that scene still remains one of the scariest things ever to me. And it made me a forever fan of both TCM and Gunnar Hansen.
