Best of a not so great number of Mangler movies
20 March 2006 | by HEFILMSee all my reviews

I can't believe anyone who thought this movie was the worst movie they ever saw have seen either of the other 2 Mangler films,both of which I'd certainly put on that list.

This is the first Mangler movie that manages to actually be a horror film, though the feeling remains with me that no one has really made the best film you could make from the short story.

This is small in scale but effective horror film. Aimee Brooks, who is so popular from MONSTER MAN, is very good here in what should be a thankless role of the victim. It's another side of her we see here in a more serious role and she also handles the action required with good skill and looks great when she briefly gets to go into "kick ass" mode.

The other actors also keep things convincing. The direction is pretty by the numbers but this at least holds together. The retro music score also helps. The design of the title "mangler" machine is also good.

This is a decent film worth a look.
