Bill Gartley

I'll tell ya; the only thing worse then the devil within, is the devil without.
~ Bill Gartley
Power is energy. Power is motivation. Power is what holds things together when they would rather fly apart.
~ Bill Gartley

William "Bill" Gartley is the tenacious and foul-mouthed owner of Gartley's Blue Ribbon Laundry Factory and the secondary main villain of the horror film The Mangler, which was based on a Stephen King story of the same name.

He was portrayed by legendary actor Robert Englund who played Freddy Krueger.


He owns a laundromat that features a demonically posessed industrial size laundry press, to which he willingly feeds innocent people so it will be satisfied and not come after him. The character of Bill Gartley is only mentioned in the short story, however he is a main character in the film and the central antagonist.
