''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).
