RIP Marilyn Burns: Original Texas Chainsaw Massacre Star Dies at 65

The horror film community lost a true pioneer of modern day horror last week as Marilyn Burns passed away Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at age 65.

“She was found unresponsive by a family member this morning in her Houston, TX area home,” her rep said in a statement to E! News. “Her family asks for privacy at this time. Further details will be released later.”

Burns infamously portrayed Sally Hardesty, who narrowly escaped the grasp of Leatherface & his chainsaw reign of madness in 1974’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. She later added several other horror films to resume staring in films such as Eaten Alive and the TV mini series, Helter Skelter.

Additionally, Burns would go on to make brief cameo appearances in both the 1994 and 2013 remakes of Texas Chainsaw.

As of right yet, no official cause of death has been revealed.

My heart goes out to both the Burns family, The Texas Chainsaw family and my fellow horror movie aficionados.

Thank you Marilyn for being a part of one of the early pioneering films that molded what is now known as the modern day horror film. As with your alter ego, Sally Hardesty, you will live on forever in film. You will never be forgotten, rest in peace.
