Sometimes, Leatherface just wants to be a loving grandma.
In the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Leatherface wears three different masks: “Killing Mask,” “Old Lady Mask” (aka “Grandma Mask”), and “Pretty Woman Mask.” The late Gunnar “Leatherface” Hansen once explained the meaning behind each of the masks:
The reason [Leatherface] wore a mask, according to Tobe and Kim, was that the mask really determined his personality. Who he wanted to be that day determined what mask he put on. So when Drayton comes home with Sally, Leatherface is wearing the ‘Old Lady Mask’ and he’s wearing an apron and carrying a wooden spoon, he wants to be domestic, helpful in the kitchen. At dinner he wears a different face, the ‘Pretty Woman,’ which has makeup.
The “Killing Mask,” of course, is the one Leatherface wears when he… kills.
As we announced back in October, Trick or Treat Studios acquired the rights to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise for Halloween 2017, and they’ll be releasing masks based on each of the films. At the time, we shared with you sneak previews of the “Killing Mask,” “Pretty Woman Mask,” and Grandpa mask, and now the company just showed off their “Grandma Mask.”
The mask was sculpted by Connor Deless. Check it out below.
