Blood and Black Rum Podcast Episode 80: THE MANGLER2 min read

We take on The Mangler for episode 80 of the podcast, talking about the ridiculousness of Tobe Hooper’s 1995 horror film. We discuss the 1800s working conditions of the laundry factory, Robert Englund’s terrible makeup and over-the-top acting, Ted Levine’s constant cursing, and the film’s horrible CGI – and yet we loved it! We also briefly touch on DUNKIRK and talk about Olde Saratoga Brewing Company’s Death Wish Nightmare IPA.
