Rest In Peace, Tobe Hooper

Another horror legend has passed. Tobe Hooper, director of classics like Poltergeist and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, died Saturday at age 74. Rest in peace, Tobe.

You can read more about Hooper's passing here.

And the question that comes to my mind is that in losing two giants in the world of horror films (George Romero and now Tobe Hooper), which directors will step up and become the marquee names to lead the genre through the next generation?

And as I did with the passing of George Romero, I will sit down tonight and toast Hooper with a viewing of his 1974 masterpiece...
