I just recently re-watched this one the other day. I thought that perhaps my views may have changed on the film. And, well, nope! I still love this one. I think it’s a really fun movie and now with Scream Factory slated to unleash the film onto Blu-ray for the first time ever this December 11th, I’m hoping that we may get the unrated version. So, who’s ready to witness The Mangler fold a person up like a sheet!?
As per Scream Factory;
Horror legends Tobe Hooper, Robert Englund and Stephen King teamed up for 1995’s bone-crunching tale of THE MANGLER—which is coming to Blu-ray for the first time from us on December 11th!
Based on King’s short story, this white-knuckle chiller follows a cop (Ted Levine) as he investigates a series of grisly accidents … and uncovers a deadly town secret that has been hidden for years – a terrifying entity that threatens to destroy everything in its path. With time running out and a young girl’s life in the balance, he races to destroy the beast before it’s too late!
Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date but we can confirm today that we have a new interview with Englund! We are also aware of the unrated cut of the film and are trying our best to secure a version of it for our release. Additionally, cover will be reversible and will feature the “sharp red” title treatment art that was commonly seen on VHS back in the day.
