From Rob Zombie:
[I met] Tobe Hooper for the first time after the premiere of House of 1000 Corpses back in 2003. He gave me a great quote which I used on the DVD box. “At last an honest horror movie that relentlessly delivers the goods! One hell of a great horror movie. I was blown away by that quote. Such a nice guy. I gonna miss him.
Rolling Stone contacted me late yesterday to write a story on Tobe Hooper. Of course, I said yes. In my early film days, Tobe was the first director to be supportive of me. It was an honor to do this for him.
Give it a read.
