Stars: Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, Gunnar Hansen Writer: Kim Henkel & Tobe Hooper Director: Tobe Hooper Suggested Retail Price: $49.98 Distributor: Dark Sky Films Time has been very good to 1974’s THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. Not only has there been multiple, inferior sequels and remakes that have tried to supplant it with lesser results, but a whole new subgenre of horror movies was jump started due to this Tobe Hooper classic.

CD Review: POLTERGEIST Special Edition (10,000 Edition) soundtrack

Poltergeist (c) 2010 Film Score Monthly
