The Texas Chainsaw Massacare went on to have six sequels.

Hooper passed away on Saturday in Sherman Oaks, Calif., though the cause of his death is now unknown.

Shot for under $300,000, it recounts the tale of a gathering of disastrous companions who experience a gathering of man-eaters on their approach to visit an old property. In 1974 he gathered a number of students and faculty and made an independent film. On some lone Texas road, in a distant place.

Missing Tobe Hooper? Watching his film in remembrance?

The film was a film industry accomplishment for MGM and turned into the eighth-most astounding earning film of the year.

He continued working in television and film, his most recent work was the movie "Djinn" in 2013. It had a level of realism that was equal parts uncomfortable and brilliant.


Born in Austin, Texas on 25 January 1943, Willard Tobe Hooper worked as a college professor before starting out as a documentary cameraman and eventually moving into film.

In many ways, Hooper's work on Texas Chainsaw wrote the playbook for future indie horror successes. Hooper is also listed as an executive producer of Leatherface - billed as a prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which is due in theaters October 20 and features Iron Fist star Finn Jones and The Conjuring star Lili Taylor. The haunted house film was written and produced by Steven Spielberg. Mr. Hooper, though, maintained that it wasn't as gory as many people assumed.

"We were out of gas in the country at the time, and it boiled up out of those times". The film also used real animal carcasses, and in some cases, actual human skeletons.

Poltergeist became the other defining film of Hooper's career, mostly because of the eternal debate about its authorship.

While the film inspired the director, he still needed to come up with an original idea. Child's Play and Fright Night director Tom Holland posted a photo of him with Hooper with the caption "One of the kindest souls I've ever known and a wicked sense of humor".
