I don't know how many of you on CR are horror fans, but I was shocked to hear that the man who played Leatherface, Gunnar Hansen, has died from cancer at age 68. So why am I writing about this? For one thing, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" is one of the iconic horror movies of the past 40 years, a classic of its kind. I've seen it on video many times, but its best to experience this movie in a theater as I have at a retro screening about a decade ago. Another thing is that I met Mr. Hansen in person at a convention in Charlotte almost twenty years ago. He is a very kind man, not at all like the cannibalistic powertool wielding psychopath he plays in the movie. This has been a sad year for horror fans since we also lost "Friday the 13th" star Betsy Palmer and British horror legend Christopher Lee earlier this year. May he be remembered for the sleepless night he gave us back in the day.

May he rest in pieces.

One free chainsaw for this man.

Yes, it's been a sad year for losing some horror legends. You can add Wes Craven to that list too. R.I.P. Gunnar!
