ORTEGA, GETTY IMAGES Wayne Newton rolls out the welcome mat, 4U On Oct. 18, 1974,movie fans met Leatherface, the hardware- toting villain from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre . Director Tobe Hooper and w riter Kim Henkel partly based their masked murderer on real- l ife killers Ed Gein(who would later inspire the Bu alo Bill char- a cter in The Silence of the Lambs ) and Texas’ own Elmer Wayne Henley, who along with Dean Corll orchestrated the Houston M ass Murders of the early 1970s that killed at least 28 teen boys. Massacre ’s storyline followed S ally Hardesty (Marilyn Burns), her paraplegic brother, Frank ( Paul A. Partain), and their friends on their way to visit their g randfather’s grave and the family’s ancestral home. Along the w ay, they demonstrate the poor decision-making skills for which horror movie teenagers are renowned: picking up a hitchhiker, c hecking out a remote swimming hole, running out of gas, and k nocking on doors for assistance. Enter Leatherface — given name Thomas Hewitt — who was in his house just minding his own business, making furniture out of human bones. By masking their decidedly n on-talkative murderer, played by Icelandic-born actor Gunnar Hansen, Hooper and Henkel ins pired a hallmark of the horror genre (see also: Halloween , Friday the 13th ). Texas Chainsaw Massac re also originated the whole p ower-tools-as-murder-weapons trope. (The particular chainsaw? A Poulan model 245A.) And why did they use a chainsaw in the first place? Legend has it Hooper was in a crowded hard- w are store and fantasized about using one to get out of there as f ast as possible. (Anyone who has ever been in a Home Depot on a Saturday morning can probably empathize with that one.) Massacre went on to gross more than $30 million domestically. (Not bad for a film whose o riginal budget was $60,000.) And Hooper would go on to helm other horror classics like 1982’s Poltergeist , making us fear housing developments built on Native A merican cemeteries almost as much as chainsaw-wielding psy- c hos. But that’s a whole di erent flashback.

H e’s on his own, playing a toy piano. He’s looking out his mom’s tour bus window. He’s napping with big blue headphones on, presumably listening to demos from songwriters up and down Music Row. So her upcoming album, Storyteller , will be filled with songs about the joys of motherhood and family, right? No more calls to arms about young women being victimized by slick pickup artists or avenging themselves by smashing up some cad’s fancy automobile? “I’ve actually been asked quite a bit about Isaiah changing my artistry,” Underwood says, apparently address- i ng the question for the umpteenth time with admirable grace. “I think people kind of expected me to make a m ommy album or lose my edge or s uddenly start singing ‘life is beautiful/babies are awesome’ songs.” In fact, the seven-time Grammy Award winner acknowledges, Isaiah a nd his dad, husband and hockey star MUSIC CARRIE TURNS A PAGE ‘Storyteller’ re fl ects a new peace to smooth that familiar edge Bob Doerschuk Special for USA TODAY v STORY CONTINUES ON2U RANDEE ST NICHOLAS TUESDAY W EDNESDAY SUNDAY
