IT WILL SCARE THE SHEET OUT OF YOU!

Master of Horror Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw, Salem’s Lot, Life Force) returns to the works of Stephen King with this baroque and blackly comic adaptation of The Mangler.

When a worker at Gartley’s Blue Ribbon Laundry is pulled into the titular laundry press and folded like a sheet, police officer John Hunton (Ted Levine, Silence of the Lambs) is called to investigate. Was it an accident, or is something more sinister going on? As more deaths and injuries occur under the watchful eye of owner Bill Gartley (Robert Englund), Hunton, with his demonologist brother-in-law Mark Jackson (Daniel Matmoor) come to believe the machine might be possessed, and the town itself to be hiding a much deeper secret.

Like an EC horror comic come to life, The Mangler is bold, brash and politically aware as Hooper once again points his camera at the American Nightmare, this time turning it on the bloodthirsty machinery of capitalism itself!

Stephen Kings 'The Mangler'

The Mangler isn't bad. Especially for how old the film is. Taste thing too. I like more on the movies like Misery It's good too - and that even though I like with King clowns, the exception, not at all like, a good mariage u a few more. Most King filming didn't really succeed and or it's too crazy. The end was clear to me at least. And really successful for the film setting at that time.
