Farewell Leatherface

Sorry to hear about the passing of Gunnar Hansen after a bout with cancer.

The original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE was one of the first things I ever rented on VHS and it immediately became part of the heavy rotation that also included THE EVIL DEAD, BLOODSUCKING FREAKS, THE TOOLBOX MURDERS and RE-ANIMATOR.

Many nights after my pals and I had pulled an all-nighter of trash film viewing we'd head outside to get some much needed fresh air and do "The Leatherface Dance" under the streetlights. RIP.

And, oh yeah, cancer sucks.
