The Mangler – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2016 Day 23

.........................................................

the-mangler

The Mangler was one of the first movies I ever rented. Probably because it had Stephen King’s name on the cover. I don’t remember what I thought of it then, but I probably liked it much better than I did rewatching it some twenty years later. Because while a killer mangle sounds like it would be well in to so bad it’s good territory, it’s mostly just kind of bad and doesn’t have any atmosphere to speak of. It’s scary in the way an industrial accident is scary; it’s unnerving to imagine it happening to you or someone you care about, and that’s about it. There’s the seed of a good story here, but unfortunately it wasn’t allowed to grow.
