The mangler of the title is a laundry press in an industrial laundry owned by Bill Gartley (Englund). An accident causes a splash of blood to land inside it awakening a demon. Soon people are dying in mysterious circumstances and police officer John Hunton (Levine) is assigned the case. Director Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre) lets the blood run freely in this adaptation of the Stephen King short story.
