Ok Usually I find something good to say even about the worst movies. Unfortunately, I can't find anything good about this one. The only thing that even made me give this movie 1 star was the ( heroine's )acting...and she ended up dying anyway !

Aside from her, the acting was just atrocious, the villian laughably unbelieveable , and the effects we've loved from the first 2 Manglers are nowhere to be found. This is probably the worst movie I have seen this year and it should no way be associated with the original Mangler movie which kicked ass.

Whether the studio needed something in a hurry to put out or not, the budget of this movie was just awful. Don't waste the money to even rent this. I'd rent Strawberry Shortcake first before I ever watched this awful piece of crap again

WARNING: possible spoilers ahead...

Reggie Bannister from the Phantasm movies makes his move away from Don Coscarelli in this pitiful would-be sequel to the Mangler. The original, which was based partially on a Stephen King short story, was about a laundry machine that ate people. Robert Englund played the psychotic owner of the laundry who fed people to the machine. It was basically Little Shop of Horrors with a laundry machine instead of a plant.

This one jettisoned the supernatural laundry machine and went for a more straightforward serial killer tale. The story is about a repairman who buys the old Mangler on eBay and starts restoring it in his basement. Once the machine nears completion, it possesses him and turns him into its minion. The rest of the movie is about this repairman going around and getting meat for his machine. There's a lot of screaming done by women as he hits them repeatedly with a hammer. I have to wonder about the two guys that wrote and directed this movie, and where this misogynistic streak is coming from.

It seems like the writers/directors were going for that unrelenting Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Haute Tension, Saw, Hostel kind of vibe that seems to be all the rage these days. But the Mangler Reborn wound up being unrelenting only in its capacity to bore me.

After reading all the nay sayer reviews of this little opus I wonder if they saw what I saw? Granted it isn't Saw or the AWESOME High Tension, but it is a major step up from Mangler 2.0. I mean, its suspenseful, gory, and disturbing. Its a worthy sequel to a lesser effort entry to start off with.

A plumber builds a machine containing parts from the original "Mangler" and nothing is going to stop him from completing his task. The next part of the story is about a father and son who are burglars and stumble upon this particular house which contains "The Mangler". Upon the fathers entrance to the house he notices something peculiar, he is traped, and with further investigating he finds a prisoner which will later be fed to the machine. The device used in this movie is a raw, crude, slicing and dicing machine.

I believe people dislike this movie because most people usually have certain expectations to be met. This movie is not top budget, nor is it horrible production, but it is enough production to give this movie its desired effect.Terror. This film is much less far-fetched than the first two Manglers. In and of itself, it is a movie about your average joe creating a machine to drain blood from its victims for it is his so called "calling".

This is one of my favorite movies, each of The Mangler movies have a unique quality to them which sets them apart from other horror films. A good horror movie will try to take new twists and turns and in doing so will pave the way for future horror and terror. A good horror movie is not just about gore. I noticed that I tend to like movies that most people dislike.

All of The Mangler movies are great in their on way.

While "The Mangler Reborn" is certainly not a masterpiece, it is better than what is reflected in most comments about the film. It is a rare example of a low budget horror film that is played totally straight, no humor and very little self-parody.

With a budget of just $85,000 they had to be very inventive so don't expect elaborate production design or special effects. The title character looks like a cafeteria dishwasher being operated by "Edward Scissorhands". They try to pass the thing off as sinister by always showing it in shadows. When a victim is fed to the thing they change to very tight shots of knives and clippers, trying to make it seem like they are part of the machine rather than being held by crew members off-camera. Obviously the film would benefit from a more elaborate and diabolical device, or at least one with some credibility.

But the Stephen King inspired premise is a good one and the first two thirds of the film set it all up very nicely. It is almost captivating for a while but finally runs out of gas and plods through the final 30 minutes.

An appliance repairman (Weston Blakesley) has acquired the cursed parts from the original "Mangler" (named for the old-style washing machine with external rollers to squeeze the water out of clothes) and is obsessively working to reinvent the lethal thing. Eventually he becomes possessed by the machine and more zombie than human. He must feed it humans because he needs to drink their "squeezins" to keep his zombie body from decaying.

Blakesley is quite credible as the slack jawed zombie who takes a rubber mallet on his repair calls and acquires his victims from among his customers.
