Tobe Hooper RIP

According to the Los Angeles County Coroner, legendary director Tobe Hooper has died at the age of 74. Hooper was best known for Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, but the great master of horror was also behind the steering wheel of more incredible although not as highly regarded flicks, like 1977's Eaten Alive, the television epic, Salem's Lot in 1979, 1981's The Funhouse, the looser/more offbeat sequel to Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 1986, two great films from 1993, Night Terrors and the collaborative film with John Carpernter, Body Bags, and much later a couple of notable episodes of the TV series Masters Of Horror.

In 2011 he co-authored alongside Alan Goldsher the post-modern horror novel, Midnight Movie, in which a fictionalized version of Hooper himself was the main character.
