RIP Gunnar Hansen

Gunnar Hansen, the man behind the mask and chainsaw in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, passed away from pancreatic cancer at the age of 68. Horror has taken a hit lately with Wes Craven and now Hansen passing away.

Hansen starred in around 28 movies, not including documentary appearances. His most famous and life defining role was of course Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. His wild and manic portrayal was the perfect fit for the gritty and raw feel of the movie.
