"This really scared me coming out of it. You knew it was made for 10 cents - that was obvious - but it actually had some fabulous performances. Some of the moments - like when Leatherface kicks open the door and comes after them - I mean your blood just runs cold. It was just amazingly visceral visual storytelling. A few years earlier, I was at college and I wrote a synopsis for a novel and my teacher feedback was "this would make a great movie!" And I was crestfallen, but it made me realise I had a great visual imagination as well, and for years I fought it but eventually realised that was the thing I could do."
