Hitchhiker Ed Neal Presents Auction for Rare Texas Chainsaw Massacre Footage
You can bid to own the original 400’ reel of 16mm outtake film.
You may remember Ed Neal as the deranged hitchhiker from Tobe Hooper’s groundbreaking 1973 horror classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. The film introduced audiences to Leatherface, a chainsaw-wielding killer, played by the late Gunnar Hansen.
Earlier today, Neal shared the news that rare, unseen footage from the film is now listed at auction for the next three days. You can own this rare item by heading over to Heritage Auctions.
Neal’s character, who is said to have inspired Bill Moseley’s Choptop for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, delivered some horrific scenes in the original film. Besides this horror role that still has fans wanting to meet him at conventions, the actor has appeared in such films as JFK and My Boyfriend’s Back, as well as numerous voice roles for anime and video games, such as Gatchaman and DC Universe Online.
If you want to own a piece of horror history, be sure to place your bids now. Heritage Auctions has also released a sneak peek video of what is available on the reel. Check it out below.
