About the Director

Tobe HooperHonored with many awards for his films and achievement in the horror genre, Tobe Hooper is truly one of the Masters of Horror. On The Funhouse (1981)] "Well, it wasn't the film I expected to be doing. I actually thought I'd come off of "Salem's" and do something like Eyes of Laura Mars (1978). But this was available and they really wanted me to do it. The writer, Larry Block, talked me into it over the course of 48 hours. It wasn't the film I expected. It surprised me, so my approach to it was probably lighter, less stressful." Tobe Hooper died on August 26, 2017, in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles and will be missed greatly.
