Episode 052- Mister Bad Example_The Legend of Tobe Hooper

Episode Link (opens new window)

We lost another horror master in August 2017 when Tobe Hooper left this mortal coil.

Hooper was a complicated artist, and in this episode, I talk about my appreciation of the man who gave us the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist.

There were varied opinions of the contributions of Tobe Hooper, but I think he was an inspired, surreal filmmaker whose contributions to horror can never be underestimated.

I hope you enjoy the episode.
