Old Monty Hewitt - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Marca - McFarlane
Tamanho - 7"
Old Monty Hewitt, the great-uncle of Leatherface, features in the 2003 remake and its prequel: played by Terrence Evans.
Monty Hewitt (also known as Old Monty) appears as a bitter, lecherous old man with two amputated legs, confined to a wheelchair. After Sheriff Hoyt kills a biker's girlfriend, the biker seeks revenge on the Hewitts and attacks Monty by shooting him in the leg. As a bit of impromptu "surgery", Hoyt orders Leatherface to remove the wounded leg with his chainsaw. Leatherface accidentally nicks Monty's second leg, so Hoyt tells him to remove that as well for "balance".
Old Monty has an unnamed pet dog and is the third member of Leatherface's family to meet the stranded teenagers in the first film who eventually become Leatherface's victims (the first being Luda May and the second being Jedidiah Hewitt) and he is the one to first summon the killer by repeatedly rapping his cane against the floor. His role in the family is unclear, with various people on the film speculating that he is either Luda May's husband or brother (or both). In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) Monty shows he has hardly any interest in killing innocent people and also claims he wants nothing to do with it. Yet later on Monty seems to have become a lot more bitter and hateful towards outsiders.
In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre comics by Avatar Press, set between the events of the remake and prequel, Monty appears as a prominent character; the Avatar Press comics depict Monty as somewhat more depraved and vicious then the films, with the 2006 miniseries The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Grind having him strangle a girl to death and later attempt to rape the girl's foster sister, who escapes by punching Monty in the head repeatedly after freeing herself from the restraints he has her in.
