I was just getting over the passing of George Romero when I woke up this morning and got the news that Tobe Hooper had passed as well. Hooper was known for the seminal horror classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre and cult favorites like Eaten Alive, Funhouse, Lifeforce, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, as well as the TV mini-series adaptation of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot, which remains one of the best King adaptations ever made. In 1982 Hooper directed Poltergeist for Steven Spielberg, which is one of the scariest PG films ever made.
Are you curious about the film that made Clive Barker throw up his hands and start directing his own story adaptations? Rawhead Rex is that film.
