Tobe Hooper is a film director, who primarily works in the horror and scifi genres.

He became famous after his low-budget debut The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 1974 which opened the way for him to the Hollywood and is cited as a horror classic. It was also a great inspiration for Slasher Movies. After doing couple films with minor success, he collabrated with Steven Spielberg and did his second famous work; Poltergeist in 1982. Afterwards his popularity declined, partially because his work on Poltergeist was believed to be done by Spielberg.

After the eighties he has worked mostly on television, with an occasional movie here and there.

  • Music video for Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself" (1981)
