The Mangler (1995)

1.5 / 5
Tagline: Escape is not an option.
Directed by: Tobe Hooper
Written by: Stephen King, Tobe Hooper
Actors include: Robert Englund
Genre: Horror
Length: 106 minutes
Banned: Nope

Based upon a Stephen King story about a laundry folding machine possessed by a demon. Now from that, you'd probably think it sounded like an interesting movie, as I thought that myself. Problem was it was one of the most boring and pointless films I've come across...there was one good "mangling" scene but one good scene doth not a good movie make. This is even filled with bad dialogue, it's humourless and truly no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Mr. Hooper ought to be ashamed of this one (and to think there is a sequel!).
