Ted Levine battles a demonic industrial cloth folding machine.

Tobe Hooper's The Mangler is a surrealist satire about the evils of sweatshop capitalism with Robert Englund as a Dr Strangelove-like industrialist who literally sacrifices his workforce to the profit margin. The mangler of the title is a magnificent 19th Century monster that folds. steams and crushes its victims like a malevolent cross between a Corby Trouser Press and a steam train. The film owes little to the short story by Stephen King, but is pretty entertaining and a lot of fun if you can accept the inherent ridiculous nature of the basic story. The gore effects are wonderfully grotesque and, in the case of Englund's demise, really quite spectacular.

It depends what you want. If you go into The Mangler expecting Stephen King you will be disappointed. The short story was never going to work as straight horror. But if you go into it open minded you might find a strange and endearingly bizarre Gothic comedy. Anyway. I like it even if no one else does.

The picture quality of the DVD is fuzzy and a bit drained looking.

Based on a Stephen King short Story but showing non of the menace of the written work. I was thoroughly disappointed with this film and couldnt believe tobe Hooper churned out such a dreary film - It wasnt what I hoped for and certainly did indeed Mangle a great short story.

The sinister guy in the film was definately creepy and the only good thing about the whole film - the rest seemed to be sloppy and amateur. sorry to those who loved it but I thought it was awful and have resigned it to the back shelf away from all the better made films of Stephen Kings work - its next to Maximum Overdrive another Turkey.

Well what can I say. I love Stephen King but this one should not have been put on DVD. Some of his short stories should stay that way. This one was a poor representation of Kings short story.

Another Stephen King classic short story that can easily carry on and on. A great story from the 'King' of horror, which deserves a place on anyone's DVD shelf whatever anyone says.

Another masterpiece from Stephen King, I collect all his movies transferred from the book, so I could be biased. I love the setting here and the plot evolves around a piece of machinery, hence the title. A masterpiece for anyone employed in the health and safety industry who could use some new material and thoughts. And then there is the 'Mangler Reborn' to look forward to....
