1. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - A 2. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - B- Own: 1 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.

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