The Mangler

1995 R

Machines aren't made to rise up against humans, but in this sci-fi thriller, one does. But why? Police detective John Hunton (Ted Levine) is on the case, as he begins to unravel the strange mystery of a folding machine that seems to yearn not for clothing but for flesh. What's behind this lust for blood, and just who is responsible for turning it into a mangling creature? The answer may lie with the gadget's owner, Bill Gartley (Robert Englund).
