Flesh Wounds: Seven Stories of the Saw (2006)

*** (out of 4)

At the start of this documentary director Michael Felsher gives a text saying that THE Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE has had countless documentaries, articles and various other information done on it but they're going to try seven "new" stories. "Chainsaw Cameraman" is an interview with cinematographer Daniel Pearl who talks about his work on the film as well as the remake. "This Old House" has TCM fan club owner Tim Harden taking us on a tour of the original house. "The Famous Mr. Ed" is an interview with the Hitchhiker himself Ed Neil as he talks about how he got the job and what it has done for his career. "In Memorium" pays tribute the members of the crew who have passed away and this includes Paul Partain, Jim Siedow and Robert Burns. "The Good Doctor" interviews Dr. W.E. Barnes who did the make-up work on Grandpa. "Frightmares and Wastelands" takes a look at a Texas film festival as well as the Cinema Wasteland 30th Anniversary cast reunion of the film. This segment also features brief comments from Caroline Williams, Lou Perryman, Tom Savini and Terry Lofton (director of NAILGUN MASSACRE). "Life After Leatherface" is an interview with Gunnar Hansen who talks about his love of writing and how he didn't realize that the film had become such a huge success until the late 80s. While this documentary isn't as good as TCM: A FAMILY PORTRAIT or TCM: THE SHOCKING TRUTH, as it says in the start, there's really not too much more that can be told that we don't already know. There's certainly nothing great here but I think all seven segments are rather entertaining and especially the stuff dealing with the fan conventions. The tribute section is very short but it too was nicely done.
