Legendary horror director Tobe Hooper died yesterday. If you’ve never seen the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” do yourself a favor and watch it by yourself at night and breath it all in. It’s a pretty singular experience. Hooper also made a lot of crap over the course of his career, but TCM stands on its own. RIP.
Tobe Hooper directed THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, a seminal work in horror cinema. He was a kind, decent man and my friend. A sad day.— John Carpenter (@TheHorrorMaster) August 27, 2017
