Leatherface actor Gunnar Hansen on slasher past, ‘Chain Saw’ memoir
LATimes - over 3 years
Gunnar Hansen is best known for his role as the masked murderer Leatherface in the 1974 classic horror film “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.” (Chronicle Books) Leatherface. Just the name can send waves of fear and revulsion through an entire generation of filmgoers. Not so for Gunnar Hansen, the actor who played the demented killer in “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” and who has, over the years, grown to love him. In the 1974 horror movie from director Tobe Hooper, the mentally disturbed Leatherface, who wears a mask of human skin, and his equally depraved and cannibalistic clan terrorize five friends who have ventured into the backwoods with their blades and butchery skills. Only Sally (Marilyn Burns) manages to escape becoming dinner. Perhaps more chilling than the film’s plot is the reactions from fans Hansen sometimes encounters. “I used to find that there were women who were excited to meet me,” Hansen said. “When they discovered that I wasn’t like Leatherface, some were rel ...

    Hodder co-wrote an autobiography with author Mike Aloisi. The book is about his life and experience in the film industry and was released on October 1, 2011.
    More Details Hide Details Kane only escaped his tormentors when he moved to a tiny island in the South Pacific where he lived for all of his teen years. After living shirtless in a jungle for a while, he headed back to America where he fell in love with doing stunts-only to have his love burn him, literally. For the first time ever, Kane tells the true story of the burn injury that nearly killed him at the start of his career. The entire story of his recovery, the emotional and physical damage it caused, his fight to break back into the industry that almost killed him, and his rise to become a film actor are told in Kane's own voice. As a side project, Kane had been ghost hunting for some time now in his own group called the Hollywood Ghost Hunters. He describes it as a "group of people who normally make a living by trying to scare other people. Everybody in the group has something to do with horror movies." Hodder partnered up with his friend Rick "Stuntman" McCullum, a Hollywood stuntman and actor who doubles for horror film actors like Sid Haig. Rick decided to form a paranormal team, after he and Kane were filming at Mansfield Reformatory for a horror film called Fallen Angels. While there, they decided to spend their break ghost hunting investigating the cells. They had a ghostly experience when they saw a shadow man running down one of the cellblocks.
    In 2011 Hodder wrote, along with author Michael Aloisi, his autobiography Unmasked: The True Story of the World's Most Prolific Cinematic Killer. This was in 2014 turned into a Webseries, which was released as The Killer & I.
