“HOW WE MADE THE WOLD’S MOST NOTORIOUS HORROR MOVIE”
Aside from playing Leatherface, one of the most iconic horror icons of all time, in one of the most iconic horror films of all time, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, Gunnar Hansen is actually an established author. His most recent book, CHAIN SAW CONFIDENTIAL, offers an insider’s behind-the-scenes view into the making of the horror classic.
Chronicle 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.
