It’s a horror epic with an undertone of dark comedy. Set in the modern-day American west, the film meshes over-the-top humor and rampaging horror at full throttle. It combines the pure terror of hearing Leatherface’s chainsaw with the gut-busting laughs of a classic Jim Carrey film. Littered with scary, grotesque, and wildly energetic characters, the film is a love letter to horror and stand-up comedy.

We’re now hearing that original Texas Chainsaw Massacre actor Allen Danziger has joined the cast of Cannibal Comedian. Danzinger played Jerry in Tobe Hooper’s seminal slasher classic that introduced the world to Leatherface and his flesh-munching family back in 1974. Allen, still living in Texas, loves to catch up with horror fans at the conventions. And even has his own bobblehead figure now. Allen also has an awesome merch store at ChainsawJerry.com. Most recently he turned a 1977 Airstream Sovereign into an Airbnb to match the original Texas Chainsaw look.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of my favorites and a key inspiration for Cannibal Comedian, so to have Allen involved is KILLER!” Haitz exudes.
