Horror Legend of Month: My pick for the month of June goes to Bill Mosely. I will post his career achievements throughout the month. Here is a short Bio of his career. For a period of time, Bill Moseley operated as a journalist, writing for such magazines as Omni Magazine, National Lampoon and Psychology Today. At the age of 29, Moseley got his first film role in Alan Rudolph's Endangered Species as a cab driver. In 1985's Osa he played a character named "Quilt Face." His third role has become one of his most well known; he appeared as Chop Top in Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, after Tobe Hooper saw him in the independent short, The Texas Chainsaw Manicure. The character spawned the famous film quotes, "Dog will hunt!", "Incoming mail!", and "Lick my plate, you dogdick!". Two years after TCM 2, he played Frank in 1988's Mamba. Also in 1988 appeared as a soldier in the remake of the Steve McQueen film The Blob. He next played Darrell in the film Pink Cadillac starring Clint Eastwood. He then ...
Watched Tobe Hooper's SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION last night-felt like a Stephen King/Cronenberg mash up with legendarily awful FX. Fun though.
Coffin Baby (2013) Dir: Dean Jones IMDb: woman’s sister is killed and shortly afterwards she is taken, imprisoned and forced to watch a masked killer slaughter. Throughout the film she asks ‘why’? As a viewer I was doing the same as there are numerous points of reference that don’t make sense-Why her? Why is he doing it? Why are there numerals on her arm and the walls? Why the noir beginning? Why the supernatural ending? Nothing is explained. What remains is a blue eyed, buck toothed masked killer getting extremely nasty with a large number of people while a caged woman looks on. Afterwards I found out that it is a sequel to the Tobe Hooper movie Toolbox Murders which itself was a remake so it might have helped seeing either of those beforehand. The gore is brutal, frequent and very well done but the absence of an explanation/story line just results in confusion. There’s no need for each scene to fade to black either. Top marks for the bloodily vicious body count but there’s not much ...
RANDOM FACT: Horror movies boost your immune system!!! Scientists observed Leukocyte ( white blood cells) activity in people watching Tobe Hoopers Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Apparently it increased their white blood cell count leaving horror fans better equipped to fight disease and repair bodily injury.
Can't wait to see the 4K restored version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre in Cannes, with Tobe Hooper attending the event... :)
And one thing is worth noting, I asked Tobe Hooper whether he liked the Blu of Texas Chainsaw and he said, yes, but that it was too clean.

Bud Cardos replaced Tobe Hooper on this 1979 Horror Film starring William Devane and Casey Kasem (!). Anyone seen it?
Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, John Carpenter, George Romero, Dario Argento, these names will forever be associated with the horror movie genre because these directors made some of the most popular and influential Horror Films in history. The directors we will talk about today can be categorized in two kinds: One is those who dedicated their career making Horror Films but did’t receive enough recognition, the other is those who made not only Horror Films, but movies in other genres. But they have one thing in common, they each made at least two horror movies that became classics today. If you are a Horror Film fan, make sure you check out all the films that are marked as must-see.   1. Mario Bava Son of cameraman/special effects supreme Eugenio Bava, Mario invented giallo (murder mysteries that emphasise the murders), helped shape slashers (A Bay Of Blood is the blueprint for Friday The13th) and birthed Alien (though Planet Of The Vampires is a good deal more camp).

A little bit about the DIRECTOR of "FRACTURED" Adam Gierasch started out as an actor but soon switched to writing, landing his first screenwriting job with legendary horror director Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, POLTERGEIST). After having ten films produced as a writer, Gierasch transitioned to directing. His first film, AUTOPSY, starring Jessica Lowndes (the new BEVERLY HILLS 90210) and Robert Patrick (TERMINATOR 2, THE UNIT), premiered at London’s FrightFest in 2008 to audience acclaim and was released theatrically in the U.S. as part of 8 FILMS TO DIE FOR. Gierasch’s second movie, NIGHT OF THE DEMONS, was released theatrically in September 2010. A remake of the 1988 classic, it stars Shannon Elizabeth (AMERICAN PIE, THIRTEEN GHOSTS), Edward Furlong (TERMINATOR 2) and Monica Keena (FREDDY VS. JASON) and features a classic punk soundtrack and dynamic cinematography. With his third feature, FERTILE GROUND, Gierasch showed his range with a quiet thriller drama about a woman’s loss and her slo ...

Describing their sound as 'Slaughterhouse Steampunk Blues', The Wattingers lean towards the grimy underbelly of Western Steampunk. Their black sense of humour takes influences from Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Sante Sangre, El Topo, original Night of the Hunter, Cannibal The Musical, and The Child Ballads. Stripped down to the bare bones, their music is inspired by old and not-so-old blues greats, such as Howling Wolf, Killdozer, Joan Baez, Martin Carthy, The Birthday Party, Screaming Jay Hawkins, The Bad Seeds, Gallon Drunk, The Butthole Surfers, the Beasts Of Bourbon, The Kills, Jawbone, Seasick Steve, Tom Waits, and Prison 'Hollers' as recorded by Alan Lomax.

Once again Leatherface sole was based just on Ed Gein and so was Norman Bates from Psycho.I still remember the interviews with Robert Bloch on Psycho novel/film and Tobe Hooper on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.It's because Leatherface wears human face mask which still gives me the creeps.And Norman Bates dress up as Mother.Ed Gein had a very strict religious mother who told him all women were dirty.Leatherface robbed graves and so did Ed.Leatherface has his grandma corpse Ed stole his mother corpse.He was suspected of killing 3 women they never found one lady body.Ed Gein wasn't a cannibal he did make from human remains soup bowls he was constructing him self a suit since he wanted to be a woman.He was caught but was found mental unstable for trial he was sent to mental institution he died in 1984 which is still creepy to me knowing that detail.Buffalo Bill from Silence Of The Lambs was also based on Ed Gein as well.
Tobe Hooper should direct a chick flick.

Getting a refresher in 70's cinema, watching Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Out of the following icons - Wes Craven, John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper and George Romero - which one do you think has left the most impactful legacy on the horror genre?
...from 1974, we'll be featuring Tobe Hooper's relentless chiller, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, starring Marilyn Burns and Gunnar Hansen...
Wishing for an anthology film to come out, with segments directed by John Carpenter, George A. Romero, David Cronenberg, Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, Clive Barker, Don Coscarelli, Stuart Gordon, Joe Dante, John Landis, and other 80s treasures.
New York horror fans devoted to the horrific 35mm film experience in an increasingly digital world will want to head up to Poughkeepsie, NY’s Hudson Horror Show VII this Saturday for 12 hours of big-screen thrills from directors Sam Raimi, Tobe Hooper and Lucio Fulci, among others.
just because it has Spielberg tropes people always like to say "oh, it's more of a Spielberg movie than Tobe Hooper" unfortunately, those people don't like Tobe Hooper as much as Spielberg and as so have probably only seen Texas Chainsaw and Poltergeist. Like Hooper's best work the film is about an American Family with major issues, it has the cynical but humanistic undertone, the elements of American greed causing distress and the performances are all pure Hooper (watch the brilliant Funhouse if you don't believe me or, for that matter, the original TCM). The more religious stuff (concerning the psychic) seems more on the Spielberg side but Hooper paints these people realistically, not to say that Spielberg doesn't but the performances of early 80s Spielberg were more stylized in the mode of 40s American comedies whereas Hooper grounds them firmly in the reality of their Southern California upper middle class surroundings
Directed by Tobe Hooper. With Steve Railsback, Peter Firth, Frank Finlay, Mathilda May. A race of space vampires arrive in London and infect the populace.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a 1974 American slasher film, directed and produced by Tobe Hooper, who cowrote it with Kim Henkel. It stars Marilyn Burns, Paul A. Partain, Edwin Neal, Jim Siedow and Gunnar Hansen, who respectively portray Sally Hardesty, Franklin Hardesty, the hitchhiker, the propr...

Tobe Hooper, the director of this movie, was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider during filming of tonight's feature, The Funhouse. Also, Hooper was offered a chance to direct E.T. by Steven Spielberg, but due to his commitments on this project, had to turn it down. Hooper later on would direct Poltergeist, which was produced by Spielberg. With all this said, Enjoy! Pay to get in. PRAY TO GET OUT!
  Poltergeist: written by Steven Spielberg, Michael Grais, and Mark Victor; directed by Tobe Hooper; starring Craig T. Nelson (Steve Freeling), JoBeth Williams (Diane Freeling), Beatrice Straight (Dr. Lesh), Dominque Dunne (Dana Freeling), Oliver Robins (Robbie Freeling), Heather O'Rourke (Carol Anne Freeling) and Zelda Rubinstein (Tangina) (1982): Stephen Spielberg essentially co-directed Poltergeist and controlled its post-production, and it shows: this is very much a mirror image of E.T., released within a week of Poltergeist in 1982.   Much of the early material with the family soon to be beset by vengeful spirits works pretty well; we're in Spielberg suburbia, where the Dad is distant (figuratively here; literally in other Spielberg films) and the Mother is the spiritual head of the family. The supernatural starts with what seems to be a furniture-moving poltergeist ("Noisy ghost") but soon moves into high-tech pyrotechnics, rubbery models, stop-motion trees, and large accumulations of skeletons ro ...
Hanging out with Tim Sullivan and Tobe Hooper about to record the LIFEFORCE commentary. Now THIS is a Friday night!
In October 2006, New Line Cinema released The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. A prequel to the 2003 remake of the original 1974 film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre , it features the childhood development and first chainsaw murder of a character known as Leatherface. Before it, there were five movies and several documentaries associated with this series. Viewers never seem to get enough. Tobe Hooper directed the original movie for release in 1974, as well as its widely-panned 1986 sequel. The basic plot follows a group of five college students out to explore the abandoned house in Texas where the grandfather of two of them, Franklin and Sally Hardesty, once lived. They pick up a crazy hitchhiker who slashes himself and Franklin, so they kick him out of their van. Out of gas, they stop at a gas station that has none and then go to the house. Wandering to an adjacent property, two of the kids come under attack from the demented family that lives there. A large man wearing a human-skin mask kills the bo ...
Tobe Hooper's first film: a low budget farce concerning three thieves who are wanted dead or alive.
I am going to see this in 70MM next month! Here's how Undead Johnny described this film in an interview with the Wilmette Patch last Halloween: "Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce. If you haven't seen it, watch it. It's like four movies in one. It's a space opera, then it's a vampire movie, then it's a zombie flick and then finally an apocalypse film. It is full of what fellow horror host Joe Bob Briggs calls the 3 B's. Blood, Breasts and Beasts. It's got plenty of blood, the main vampire chick spends literally the whole movie walking around in the nude and there's tons of zombies at the end. Plus, Patrick Stewart is in it, you know, Captain Jean Luc Picard from Star Trek, so that makes it classy like Shakespeare. "
From the 2003 documentary by Mike Mendez and Dave Parker, Tobe Hooper looks back on making the classic "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"

Off the top of my head: Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper, Ti West, John Carpenter, Rob Zombie, Daren Aronofsky, and James Wan.
I need to stop making the mistake of telling people Tobe Hooper directed Les Mis. It's probably because deep down I wish it was true.
TEXAS CHAINSAW (2013) This direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's classic nixes all the sequels that followed and the remakes to begin what I'm sure the producers hope will be a new franchise for the series, and that could be a bad thing and a good thing. The film picks up right where the original film leaves off in 1974, when the cops and townsfolk arrive at the farmhouse for revenge. Suddenly, the family has grow into a huge assembly of characters, including a woman with a newborn baby and a bunch of rednecks ready for a shootout! What!?! Anyway, in 2012, the baby, raised by a couple of the lynchers and grown up into a beautiful Alexandra Daddario (who should be pushing 40 in a correct timeline, but couldn't be more than 25) inherits her grandmother's huge estate, which harbors a secret... That's right. Leatherface (who's name is really Jed) lives in the cellar and is out for revenge when mistakingly let out of the house. What ensues is a crapload of disposable characters (including the ever-annoying Trey Songz ...
I have to keep reminding myself that Les Miserables isn't directed by Tobe Hooper. A daily disappointment.
Having seen the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) when it opened theatrically back in '74, and every sequel/remake since their respective local opening week(s), I don't give a rat's *** what anyone says: I found TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D (2013) a surprisingly good horror movie and followup to the original. With more executive producers credited onscreen than you can shake a stick at (including Kim Henkel and Tobe Hooper), I was wary, but the opening credits (like Terence Fisher's DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS) replays the finale of TCSM the original (actually, a condensation of the entire movie)—all to set up a massacre of a different sort. As best I can, I bring no expectations or baggage to any movie I see; tough to do with sequels, but *** this was a fine and occasionally harrowing ride that plucked some strings that caught me offguard while hitting every stroke and touching every touchstone along the way. No spoilers from me; having met Gunnar Hansen back in the ol' Chiller Con days, it was great to s . ...

Texas Chainsaw 3D...the sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 classic...when horror movies,were horror movies...not re - makes!
I love the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. For me, Tobe Hooper's film walks on water and changed the face of not only horror, but of cinema. Before Leatherface, movies weren't meant to be felt as real. They weren't meant to unnerve. They were escapism and fun. Sure, there are exceptions, but the o...

            "Texas Chainsaw 3D" is not a particularly inventive or frightening horror movie.  Let's make that clear from the start.  A lot of that comes from the danger of any horror sequel -- what was successful due to being surprising, then becomes an expectation and expectation is the enemy of suspense and horror in most cases.  Some of it may also come from studios wanting to churn these movies out without maybe the biggest regard for quality.    Am I saying "Texas Chainsaw 3D" is a bad movie then?  Of course not.  It's a perfectly serviceable horror movie sequel with just a gust of creativity in the story that many sequels don't have.  It's certainly better than the dry and unlikable remakes previously foisted upon us by Michael Bay's production company in the early part of the century.   "Chainsaw" starts off where Tobe Hooper's original left off, ignoring previous sequels (probably with good reason) and making a quick kno ...

What I wouldn't give to see Tobe Hooper's adaptation.
I misread that Tobe Hooper had directed Les Miserables, and for a second I got really excited to go see it.
It's Tobe Hooper approved, which means nothing considering his track record after the original 'TCM', but it's something, I guess.
5 part video interview with director Tobe Hooper:
Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce is based on a novel called... (wait for it) ... Space Vampires. And they went with Lifeforce. :-\
its quite the throwback to Tobe Hooper's 80's work.
I own several copies of the original 1974 Tobe Hooper Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

This morning's viewing provided by Tobe Hooper. Excellent.
I was super-excited about Les Mis until I realized it was directed by Tom, not Tobe, Hooper. I have now completely lost interest.
Tobe Hooper should'n't've been allowed to make films after TCM unless Spielberg there to save his *** ala Poltergiest. Like Snoop to Dre.
THE FUNHOUSE was one of the first Tobe Hooper films I remember seeing. Love Funhouse.
You know, I was a lot more excited about the "Les Mis" movie when I thought it was directed by TOBE Hooper.
Taking advantage of a rare day off tomorrow, after practise ended - watched a couple of flix: Zombieland & Tobe Hooper's Funhouse (1981)
eventually there HAS to be a Tobe Hooper / Tom Hooper identity mix-up, right? RIGHT?
35mm print of the Original? Tobe Hooper Q&A? I suppose that's enough to get me to see the new Texas Chainsaw film
Early poster for 'Venom' that states 'Directed by Tobe Hooper.' He left after 2 weeks shooting along with the DP.
Since you liked Les Mis, I wanted to share that every time I saw the trailer I read, "from acclaimed director Tobe Hooper"..
for a second it looked like the wikipedia for Les Miserables said it was directed by Tobe Hooper, and in that second my mind flipped out
Possibly, but I also have Tobe Hooper's "The Funhouse" to watch.
remake all Tobe Hooper films with Mott the Hoople soundtracks
when in hectic shopping lines folks... remember Tobe Hooper came up with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre under the same conditions
HBO continues to teleport me back to their 1983 TV schedule. Tobe Hooper's The Funhouse is on now. I snuck into this movie back in 1981.
Hey! Tobe Hooper's THE FUNHOUSE starts at 1:35 EST on HBO! Happy holidays y'all!

I would have liked Les Miserables a lot better if instead of Tom Hooper directing, it was Tobe Hooper.
Misread Tom Hooper as Tobe Hooper in a 'Les Misérables' review. Now THAT'S a movie I want to see.
my plan is to be in theatre for (1974) & its q&a w/ tobe hooper, then be in theatre for PIETA.
Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), and the real-life crimes of Ed Gein
Got issue 23 (1982) bought as a gift for me which features interviews with Sam Raimi and Tobe Hooper, with Evil Dead on the cover!
The Mangler is a decent film from Tobe Hooper with Robert Englund. Both so under rated and deserve more awards.
Tobe Hooper, director of the original 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre', calls "Incredible"!
