OPENING CREDITS (1:31)
1. The original opening credits for the film played over an eerie nighttime landscape, highlighted by shots of the moon shrouded in clouds. Additionally, this unused introduction for the film features a completely different opening theme. Some portions of this theme can be heard in the background of other scenes in the final theatrical version of the film.
LEAVING FOR WORK (1:42)
2. This sequence followed the Sawyer family's adventures during a night of yuppie slaughter. The family heads out in their meat mobile while Lefty watches silenty from the sidelines. This was originally placed shortly after Stretch's disappearance into the underground labyrinth, before Lefty's charge into the homestead.
DIE YUPPIE SCUM! (5:27)
3. As the Sawyer family's murderous night out on the town rolls on, they happen to stumble upon a rioting bunch of drunken yuppie sports fans in an underground parking structure. Mayhem ensues and this scene features a significant amount of gore from the master, Tom Savini. In the end, the scenes were deleted by director Tobe Hooper for pacing reasons.
THE GONZO MOVIEGOER (1:21)
4. The final sequence of the family's nighttime hunt for prime meat focused on the slaughtering of some theater patrons as they left the screening of a cheesy horror movie. This brief scene features a cameo from popular horror critic Joe Bob Briggs, who can't help but admire Leatherface's handiwork. The ladies in the scene are played by Twinkly Bayoud and Victoria Powells.
CLOTHES OFF HIS BACK (0:26)
5. This alternate version of the film's ending features Stretch as she attacks Chop-Top with Grandma's chainsaw, causing him to fall off the side of the Matterhorn and back down into the underground labyrinth. He then vanishes into the mouth of a smoking exhaust tunnel. At this moment, we were originally treated to the sound of an explosion, followed by the sight of Chop-Top's tattered clothes ejecting from the open maw of the tunnel entrance.
