Actual Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and lence of the lambs were all based on the same real life serial killer.
However, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre was also my first.
I loved how raw the movie was . .. very gorilla style . . . scared me to death.
I actually watched part of it the other night on some movie channel and I still thought to myself . .. . man this is a freak'n crazy movie!
When Booman and I talked with Gunnar Hansen about his experience he said he had no clue the movie would ever get noticed.
Funny thing, he said he went back out to the location where they shot the movie shortly after it got big and some kids pulled up (who came to see the house). They said to Gunnar (not knowing who he was) "Did you know this is where they shot that movie?"
LOL, I thought that was pretty funny and that's when Gunnar said he knew this movie was going to be remembered.
