This year has been brutal as yet another legend has passed.
Leatherface will be joining Freddy Krueger’s father in horror heaven.
Gunnar Hansen, who played the original Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, died at age 68, according to his agent and ABC 7.
Hansen, who was born in Reykjavik, Iceland and moved to the U.S. at age 5, got his first role as the iconic, chainsaw-wielding Leatherface in 1973.
When you mention to anyone that you’re a horror fan, most people immediately think of Freddy, Jason, Michael, and of course, Leatherface.
Hansen will be missed greatly by the Bloody Disgusting family. We will rev our chainsaws in remembrance.
