Hollywood herdenkt horrormeester Tobe Hooper
Afgelopen weekend verloor Hollywood met Tobe Hooper een heus horroricoon. De regisseur van The Texas Chainsaw Massacre en Poltergeist overleed op 74-jarige leeftijd.
Op sociale media verschenen al snel allerlei eerbetuigingen aan de horrormeester. Onder meer William Friedkin (The Exorcist), James Wan (The Conjuring, Saw), Scott Derrickson (Sinister), John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) en Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) drukten hun respect voor Hooper uit.
Tobe Hooper directed THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, a seminal work in horror cinema. He was a kind, decent man and my friend. A sad day.

Sorry to hear Tobe Hooper passed. He did a terrific job directing the 'SALEM'S LOT miniseries, back in the day. He will be missed.
