Episode 96 - Tobe Hooper

Daniel Baldwin was on last year for an episode on the late, great Wes Craven. This time he returns to talk about another "master of horror" by the name of Tobe Hooper. To his credit, he's made one masterpiece worth praising a little bit more, but we mainly focus on the rest of his filmography.  We touch on everything from EGGSHELLS to TOOLBOX MURDERS, but the bulk of the discussion is on the middle of his career including EATEN ALIVE, LIFEFORCE, INVADERS FROM MARS, and more!  There's also a brief discussion about the so-called Horror Renaissance and I also tell everyone that it's a really good time to go out to the movies now that fall has arrived!
