Title: The Mangler (1995)
Post by: Jigsaw on March 13, 2018, 04:29:01 AM
This may not be the poorest adaptation of a story of Stephen King's, but it's certainly note-worthy in that well-known names (Robert Englund, Tobe Hooper) crafted a movie so mediocre.

Have you had the misfortune to witness this film?

Probably been 15 years since I last saw it so I don't remember how good or bad it was but I know quite a few people who seem to like it.

It's been awhile since I've seen this, though from what I remember, I did not appreciate it.  I found it to be too much of a bore.

Given the average on IMDb is 4/10 (74.1 % of those who voted gave it a 5/10 or below), I would think that those who legitimately enjoyed it would be in the minority.

That said, as much as I didn't care for it, I'm glad someone got enjoyment out of this film. Puking king's rather right - it certainly does drag, especially given the flick's length.
