It was recently announced that Toby Hooper's classic horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was getting rereleased in theaters with a remastered 4k version. While we wait for that, here is a fantastic documentary that details the making of the original movie.
Hooper and his crew went through a hell of a lot to get their movie made. I had no idea how hard it was until I watch this documentary. The 75-minute doc was produced in 2000, and it features interviews with the cast and crew who go into detail about the crazy hell they went through to make their film. It's crazy how many bad business deals were made that left several people uncompensated for their efforts. It was also funny that art director Robert Burns used real animal parts on his set designs so there was the wonderful stench of rotting flesh to help get everyone in the mood.
I love the insight that this doc has to offer, and if you haven't seen it yet, it's definitely worth watching. Thanks to The Film Stage for pointing this out to me.
