Synopsis
True to its title, this video documentary features the creative forces behind the infamous Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and its 1986 sequel. Director Tobe Hooper is a veritable fountain of self-effacing anecdotes. Equally engaging is TCM leading lady Marilyn Burns, who discusses in vivid detail the perils of working upon a maggot-infested set. Generous footage from the two Massacre films are put on display here, along with a smattering of outtakes. Like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies themselves, A Family Portrait is at once repulsive and likeable. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Some cool interviews and insight into the making of a classic. The highlight I thought was an outtake of Leather face putting on make up in front of a mirror to get prettied up for the dinner with Grandpa & the family and their victim. Go figure. It's a woman's face he's wearing. I'm reluctant to see the re-make that just got released. I'll wait for the DVD.
