This Master of Horror has written and directed movies in the horror genre for over three decades, and has enthralled audiences with such offerings as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Salem's Lot (posted here on Friday Night Frights), and Poltergeist, to name just a few.

He has contibuted to several horror anthology series as well.

Here's one of the all-time greatest trailers, for his original 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
