               Gunnar Hansen, ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ villain, dies at 68

So this past weekend we lost the actor, Gunnar Hansen. He portrayed “Leatherface ‘Bubba’ Sawyer” in the 1974 horror classic, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. His performance alone scared the shit out of me and millions of people in the 70s and on through the 80’s. I remember seeing the movie the first time at the drive-in. Those times in the 70s, grown ups didn’t care if a movie scared you or not. I think they wanted it to scare you to toughen you up or to make fun of you for the rest of your life. Well in any case, it scared the crap out of me. I was so scared of Leatherface that my nightmares had nightmares.

Then after seeing the movie more and more, I got immune to the “scary” parts of it and enjoyed the horror it brought to me. As I got into middle & high school, it became the “midnight” movie at the local theaters. It even became the biggest date movie ever to us preteens. I remember one of my first dates in middle school was taking her to see the movie during a Saturday matinee. The whole theater was fully packed with middle schooler’s yelling, throwing popcorn and all that shit, but when the lights turned off, it was time to get scared. I won’t go into details about the date, but she was scared for some time and didn’t talk to me for a while. HA! My friends & I though would always see it every school year. Now, the movie is pretty much on all the time. I haven’t seen it in a while, but I think it’s time to bring back the nightmares once again. This time, I’ll enjoy it. Thanks a lot, Gunnar Hansen for making ‘Leatherface’ one of the true faces in horror history. R.I.P.
