Hollywood Directors Pay Respect To Tobe Hooper Several Hollywood directors and actors are paying respects to Tobe Hooper, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist helmer who passed away on Saturday at age 74. The loss of Hooper is the second big blow to the horror film community in as many months, following the passing of legendary Night of the Living Dead writer-director George A. Romero in July at age 77. In addition to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, Hooper directed such notable horror films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Life Force, Night Terrors and Mortuary.
