The Mangler (1995)

Director: Tobe Hooper
Starring: Robert Englund, Ted Levine
Budget: Unknown
Box Office: $2m

Plot: A short story by Stephen King, adapted by the director of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, starring Freddy Krueger and Buffalo Bill. That might sound enticing on paper, but The Mangler is, when all’s said and done, a film about an evil laundry press. Hard to imagine a creative team that wouldn’t struggle with that one.

The Mangler 2 (2001)

Director: Michael Hamilton-Wright
Starring: Lance Henriksen, Chelse Swain

Plot: We’ve basically avoided the obvious horror franchises on this list, since it seems a given that even unlikely-seeming horror series (Children Of The Corn, Leprechaun, The Howling etc.) do just continue to chug on. We thought The Mangler deserved a mention though. Let’s be clear: a film about an evil laundry press spawned a sequel. Rebooting the premise, this is now a teen horror yarn set in a school, and The Mangler is now a computer virus rather than an enormous immovable piece of industrial machinery. What? How? Don’t ask us, and don’t ask the filmmakers either, since they don’t address the question in the slightest. Staggeringly, there was also a third instalment, The Mangler Reborn, in 2005.

You've obviously never been tortured... not that I have but I can imagine it would be more painful than clicking a button. More

23 Why the clicking?
Why do you think people will click through 40 pages loading? It would be much less annoying to have it as a scrolled list down a few pages. Gave up clicking at 11. Torturous. More
