Like Romero, I don't even have words to express the loss here. This guy has been and still is one of my heroes in the world of cinema.

RIP, Mr H, rest well.  Bluesad

I wonder when he came to South Africa to make The Mangler if anyone told him that almost all of his films were banned here at one point?

The Mangler was filmed in south Africa?

Ive always thought it was an under-rated horror movie. I remember back in the day that we had rented this movie fom blockbuster and i stayed home from school and watched it repeatedly. I must have watched it 5 times that day. That was probably a little unhealthy.

Invaders from mars - ive liked this movie since it came out when i was a little kid. I never seen the original. I used tell people that Krang was in this movie.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
