That movie...Jesus, that movie...It is difficult to believe that the same director made "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" and "Poltergeist." (In the case of "Poltergeist," it is LITERALLY difficult to believe...)It's a terrible movie, but I am kind of in awe of it. Not to the same extent as I am of "Maximum Overdrive," but in a similar way.The short story, on the other hand, is terrific. It deserved much better! But that said, I don't know how you get across some of those ideas on film.Thanks to Tobe Hooper's movie, though, I know how you DON'T do it.
