    I've seen Poltergeist but it has been way too long. I've seen the first 20-30m of The Mangler but it was so bad I couldn't continue. I think we have it on VHS, my wife got it in a 2-pack with some other King film (The Stand maybe?)

    I really don't consider POLTERGEIST a Hooper film but that's another topic.

    If I were Hooper, I'd let Spielberg have all the credit for Poltergeist.

    Poltergeist (1982) - 7/10
    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) -8/10


    I'm sure I've seen Salem's Lot, but have no memories of it.
