Ed Neil in "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" (1974)

Two decades before he brought villainy to Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Ed Neil (Lord Zedd, MMPR-Space) brought terror to the big screen in the original "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre." Neil appeared in the film as the Hitchhiker who is the first to ruin a Summer day for teenager Sally and her traveling friends. When they stop to give him a ride, he creeps them out by cutting his hand with their knife. The teens refuse to buy a terrible photo that he takes of them and promptly burns it and cuts one of them with his own knife. Though they kick him out of their van, he later turns up as one of the twisted members of Leatherface's demented family, which proceeds to torture Sally after the brutal murders of her friends.

"The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" is available on DVD
