Saturday Frights - Tobe Hooper

Saturday Frights Podcast Ep. 64 (Tobe Hooper)

With the passing of Tobe Hooper on August 26th of 2017, the pantheon of horror legends has grown smaller. I certainly made sure to share my shock and disbelief at the passing of Tobe Hooper on Facebook. However after talking it over with the Projectionist we came to a decision. To venture back into the Retroist Vault and record this special episode, one focusing on the works of Tobe Hooper.
Tobe Hooper - The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

I realize of course that Tobe Hooper is probably best remembered for his 1974 film, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Of course this is rightfully so. But in all honesty he was behind the camera for many more excellent horror films as well as TV series.

  • Salem’s Lot
  • The Funhouse
  • Poltergeist
  • Lifeforce
  • The Texas Chain Saw Massascre 2
  • Tales from the Crypt
  • Masters of Horror

Granted there is in fact a debate on who actually directed 1982’s Poltergeist. As the Projectionist and I brought up back 27 episode ago. Thankfully for you, the listeners, this is…mostly…avoided this go around.

Furthermore we have a special guest segment for this show. We are joined by none other than Daniel XIII! Whose reviews are easily found over on the That’s Not Current spot on the internet.

If you have any suggestions for topics you would like for us to cover in a future special. Or possibly you have comments on the current show, email them to me at VicSage@Retroist.com. You can also contact me on Twitter and on Facebook.

The theme used at the beginning of the episode was provided by Peachy (The Benjamin Wallfisch of Wales), if you have musical needs why not contact him at peachy@Retroist.Com. And be sure to “like” him on his Facebook page…before he goes to investigate what makes Sawyer chili so delicious!
