I mean, he’s Bruce fucking Dern right? As the audience, we know just as little as she does, and learn at same rate of knots, so we too feel imprisoned and hopeless.

Lewis is simply exceptional here, so much so, that every second spent pent-up in the pen alongside her is made to matter. There are continuity errors galore, gaping chasms in its logic, and it’s like one big puzzle that attempts to solve itself but with insufficient parts to do so.

All Rights Reserved. The Toolbox Murders is a slasher-esque film and Video Nasty released in 1978.. Set in California in 1967, the film follows Vance Kingsley, an apartment complex owner who, several months prior to the events of the film, lost his teenage daughter Kathy in a car wreck, a tragedy which sent him spiraling into seclusion and a deep depression, which eventually led to religious mania. Samantha may cycle through the regular motions of fear, anger, and despair pretty much right on cue, but she’s also not averse to a dash of doolally and known to stomp around her enclosure like a petulant kid who has just been harshly grounded.

Shamefully the critics failed to spot this when ravaging Toolbox Murders 2 and even singled her performance out as dire.

Score: Terry Huud "The Toolbox Killer" were a pair of ephebophilic serial killers, rapists, and abductors. I’m about to beg to differ.

The fact remains that the overwhelming majority will find this film too inhospitable to entertain and I can only fight its corner so much. Distributor: Shout!

You see, he has been known to be a little forceful when it comes to handing out invites, and taking no for an answer isn’t his strong suit.

Predictably this too was disregarded as nothing more than a cheap marketing stunt to sell the movie and perhaps it is but, should this be so, then you can’t really gripe about his sales pitch. Editing: Ryan Correll, Sherwood Jones, Christopher James Miller Take his latest dinner guest for example.

But as for being utterly worthless, well beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? Lawrence Sigmund Bittaker and Roy Lewis Norris, a.k.a. However, I happen to possess something called my own opinion and refuse to tailor that just to keep up with the Joneses.

But where I come from, credit is given where due, and I see no lawful reason why Jones’ film should be declined such a basic privilege. Seldom will I be quite so much in the minority as here as I’m quite aware how unanimously this film is despised and my refusal to stick the boot in will likely infuriate many whose Toolbox Murders 2 experience differed greatly from mine.

Lewis is our USP, hers is the crazy glue that supplies the sum of its parts adhesive, and I found the result to be borderline compulsive. You wouldn't make sense.. if you believe this does. With Samantha’s sanity fast fading, Vance’s sermons become increasingly significant, and Dern’s inclusion therefore makes perfect sense to me.

Director: Dennis Donnelly Male Deaths Edit. Had Tobe Hooper’s 2004 reimagining of Dennis Donnelly’s 1978 original been anything other than a bog-standard slasher, then perhaps I’d be less forgiving as Jones brings precious little new to the table and, while visually arresting, his film supplies virtually no context to all the on-screen savagery.

Limbs are hacked, skin torched, bone carved through, heads lopped off, bodies sawed in half, and never once does the camera shy away from providing full and extensive coverage of the atrocities being committed.

Broken they said it was.

Disorienting it may be, nauseating it most certainly is, but I object to the suggestion that it’s aimless, exploitative trash with no USP. While the subject matters herein may occasionally be dark, there exists always a light source. Toolbox Murders 2 has been accused of being an ordeal to sit through and, while I get that, does it have any pre-requisite to be anything other than uncomfortable viewing? Horror, Hollywood, California is turned upside down by a series of strange and horrific murders creating chaos and turmoil in tinsel town.


Not Rated He frequented the restaurant she worked at. By the time it dared show its face again, trimmed back to the barest essentials and padded out with freshly shot footage, swooping critics already had their tools drawn to provide the film a thorough pummeling.

However, you have to admire Jones for landing not only Krause but also two-time Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern and his role as fellow caged animal Vance Henrickson, while brief, plays on a number of his key strengths exquisitely. | Screenplay: Josh Edwards, Dean Jones
