Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Van Redin

Leatherface, the lumbering villain of 1974’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre, gets the Dr. Phil treatment this month when The Beginning explores his upbringing. With a father figure like R. Lee Ermey’s crooked Sheriff Hoyt, how could he not grow up bad? ”He is the puppet master and Leatherface is the puppet,” says Jordana Brewster, who plays their prey. ”You get to see the psychology behind Leatherface and the way the sheriff manipulates him.” Leatherface always was a tool…of evil.
