“I started making horror films, really, trying to give people their money’s worth.”Tobe Hooper

Tobe Hooper was featured on Fangoria’s Weekend Of Horrors in 1986 to discuss his career in the horror genre and to promote his latest film, Invaders From Mars. The interview—which is spliced with some footage of the director giving out awards at the Ambassador hotel in Los Angeles (which would eventually end up as the setting for Hooper’s 2004 remake of The Toolbox Murders)—touches on how Hooper developed and shaped his interest in horror and science fiction.
