Sometimes, once just isn't enough.

And, in the case of Tobe Hooper, it felt right to honor this quirky and often misunderstood artist with a second helping of praise.

On this episode, I talk with John Cribbs and Christopher Funderburg, the co-creators of "The Pink Smoke" film review website ( about the legacy of the late Tobe Hooper. 

He’s a filmmaker who induces strong opinions and debate.  We talk about that debate today, and the contributions Hooper made to, not only horror, but also American Film itself.

I hope you enjoy the episode.
