AsVariety reports, the LA county coroner confirmed that Hooper passed away on Saturday (August 26) in Sherman Oaks, California.
Variety, the industry magazine for Hollywood, first reported his death. Eaten Alive was a charming crudity about another hungry killing thing, Salem's Lot was an acceptable if rudimentary TV version of Stephen King's novel, and The Funhouse was a solid slasher. "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" was selected to the Director's Fortnight of the 1975 Cannes Film Festival. "They would get out of my way.'" Thankfully for the shoppers, he didn't - but the idea created the film's iconic weapon.
"Texas Chain SawMassacre" would inspire a host of splatter films in its wake.
One of the most enduring images from "Massacre" is the visage of the mad, chainsaw-wielding "Leatherface" - played by Gunnar Hansen - as he relentlessly pursues the young interlopers and helps move many of them to their unfortunate fates. Bill Moseley, who worked with Hooper on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, wrote, "So sad to say goodbye to TOBE Hooper, the man who took a chance on me and gave me my career in film's greatest genre".
Horror film director Tobe Hooper has died aged 74. "That was a driving force and my ability to pull the energy up out of myself to work that damn hard as I wanted to see it. the movie, I mean, as a finished picture".
Hooper's film would go on to become one of the most profitable movies of the 1970s - earning over $30 million during its initial run. Needing to keep costs low, Hooper pushed for the film to be made as quickly as possible.
It featured a family coping with a house haunted by ghosts and was a box office success.
Legendary horror director John Carpenter also paid tribute via Twitter.
