Who can forget the jarring images of Leatherface dancing with his chainsaw while Sally Hardesty laughs/cries hysterically from the back of a speeding pick-up truck? The moment is iconic to say the least, and that’s exactly how and when The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D opens.

Adorable website Zombies Ate Lauren was on hand at the recent Summer Fears in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, where the original Leatherface himself, Gunnar Hansen, was introducing a special screening of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

During his intro Gunnar dropped the following on fans regarding the new movie …

[It’s a] true sequel to the original ‘Chainsaw,’” he told the crowd in attendance. “The opening of the movie is the last scene of the original movie. So it starts right at the beginning. In fact, they’re using some of the footage of Leatherface – of me – dancing at the beginning. [It’s] the opening shot I think.

Pretty badass. Check out video from the intro below, and kudos to Lauren for bringing the world this news.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is filming now under the direction of John Luessenhop from a screenplay by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms. Dan Yeager, John Dugan, Bill Moseley, Alexandra Daddario, Sue Rock, Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood, Gunnar Hansen, Tobe Hooper, Paul Rae, Keram Malicki-Sánchez, Ritchie Montgomery, Trey Songz, Marilyn Burns, Shaun Sipos, Thom Barry and Richard Riehle star.
