Chainsaw Hackee Joins ‘Masters of Horror’

Variety reports that Jonathan Tucker of New Line Cinema’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake has joined the cast of Showtime’s Masters of Horror. He will star in the episode entitled Dance of the Dead, which is now filming in Vancouver, B.C., according to Variety. Dance of the Dead is being directed by Tobe Hooper off a screenplay by Richard Christian Matheson. “Dance Of The Dead” depicts a post-apocalyptic dystopia wherein reanimated corpses of former friends and enemies dance on stage for the entertainment of the few who survived a nuclear holocaust. Too naive and wholesome for her own good, Peggy embarks on her first double-date with a slick upperclassman. Her nervous fits of laughter quickly turn to panicked screams as she learns the truth of the dangerous world outside her mother’s protective cloister, and the sacrifices that were made in order to guarantee her survival.
