”How do I get a PG rating,” Texas Chainsaw Massacre director Tobe Hooper once asked the MPAA, ”and hang someone on a meat hook?” His ”Gone With the Wind of meat movies” — about five friends terrorized by a chain-saw-wielding cannibal — gets the epic treatment on this EXTRAS-laden double-disc set. Two docs cover the production from choosing roadkill (art director Robert Burns on the lily-livered crew’s refusal to shoot a decaying horse found near the set: ”God had given them the most wonderful gift…covered with flies”) to battling shady investors (the Mafia).
