Summary

Tobe Hooper grew up in motels, hotels and movie theaters. He says he watched at least two films a day. Some of his favorite films were produced by the iconic British horror filmmakers at Hammer Films. THE HEISTERS (restored at 2K from a 35mm print) is Hooper's trippy, Looney Tunes send-up of those films. At the time Hooper was the only student in the University of Texas Austin film department. THE HEISTERS introduced him to Hollywood (he mixed the film at Todd-AO) and whetted his appetite for features. Five years later he would make his first narrative feature, EGGSHELLS.
