The original Toolbox Murders was a bona-fide guilty pleasure back in the 70s, and it remains so to this very day. What happens when a handyman goes on a murderous rampage through an LA apartment complex, taking out "immoral" women? Plenty of blood, gore, and nudity that's what! For what it is, The Toolbox Murders is an exercise in inventive slasher movie perceptions. It offers some decent examples of bloody brutality, yet also manages to be as cheesy as it is sleezy. In those regards, it's worth seeing if you've never seen it before, or have only seen the Tobe Hooper remake that came out a few years back. Blue Underground managed to produce another standout Blu-Ray disc, which features the film in a silky smooth transfer and intriguing extras including an insightful commentary track, a documentary/retrospective, and the usual assortment of trailers and TV spots to round things out here.

A handyman goes berserk and murders women he judges as immoral or bad. He uses the tools of his trade: screwdrivers, claw-hammers, a nail gun, and a power drill. A simple plot for a grisly film that offers no real redeeming values. But although this notorious 1978 grind-house title was roundly banned, censored, vilified and damned - there are those who see it as a cinematic exercise not only of the First Amendment, but also an opportunity for the release of pent-up anger and frustration. But is it art? Or does it fuel the rage of psychopaths until they act out? What can one say about vicariously experiencing the torture and murder of women as entertainment? Can you say the same thing about Hitchcock's "Psycho"?

Camereron Mitchell stars in this cult sickie (for some, that's high praise). Look for former child star Pamela Ferdin and adult film star Kelly Nichols aka Marianne Walter.

This classic exploitation film still shocks and can be "enjoyed" now in a true hi-def, uncensored transfer that has been newly remastered from the original negative.

Extras include a amazing audio commentary with producer Tony DiDio, cinematographer Gary Graver and actor Pamela Ferdin. The story of the making of the film is more interesting than the film itself. A featurette aptly titled "I Got Nailed in the Toolbox Murders" is a memorable interview with adult star Marianne Walter.

Few film posters have so clearly advertised the intent and content of the movie it heralds - and delivers.

This film is not for everyone. Maybe not for anyone but exploitation film scholars, misogynists and psychiatrists.

I'm not old enough to remember the 70s, but I've seen enough 70s sleaze to know the good from the bad. Toolbox Murders is middle of the road. It's not "Nude for Satan" good but it's not trash either. I'll just make this a quick review and say if you like your movies a little on the sleazey side, then buy this. Although, I'm guessing you wouldn't be reading this if you didn't have an interest in this type of movie anyway.

Not bad PQ I was fairly impressed with this transfer. Plenty of soft grain throughout but textures, colors and overall definition are quite a bit better than the dvd version. As far as the audio there's not a whole lot to write home about. Not exactly a award winning movie in the sound department to begin with but was hoping for at least a slightly better audio re-master. Overall worth a upgrade if you are a fan of this film.

I was verry impressed with this one .The murder scenes were fast paced and disturbing, chocked full of nudity with somewhat of a twisted moral message ,and i wont give away the end but as the credits roll you can just see the morning sun peek over the horizon (telling the audience that the horror has lasted all night long) an effect used in other horror movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre. This movie was a mix between grindhouse and exploitation horror. Igive it an A+

"THE TOOLBOX MURDERS" is certainly one of the strangest and disturbing little "cult" favorites,that has still managed to gain a large following! how or why,still remains to be fully understood here,but this 1977 Cal-Am Production,is still a Big Question mark! under the direction of Dennis Donnelly,who had moved-on to bigger pastures,directing episodes of "THE A-TEAM" among his credentials,this 1978 release really wasn't a big box office hit,although it was shown in a number of Theatres,it quickly faded into obscurity,until it was officially released on videocassette by VCI in the early 1980s. but the main course of this movie,was about a deranged killer,who murdered "sinful women" with a variety of tools-hardly the stuff that would inspire the likes of "Jason Vorhees",or the "HALLOWEEN" franchise,which also originated in 1978. but despite its violent "gore",the only really big notice of this movie,was its key players,,two of which,were known stars of Saturday morning TV,and the main actor,Cameron Mitchell,best remembered for his 1967-1971 NBC-TV Western,"THE HIGH CHAPARRAL",who played the religiously fanatical murderer-kidnapper,who abducts Pamelyn Ferdin,who plays "Laurie Ballard",is tied to a bed,listening to the rants of Mitchell's disturbing and murderous behavior,while even accosting his victim with the "Sometimes,I Feel Like a Motherless Child" singing,which in itself,was as brutal,as all the killings that he did! then,we have the killer's nephew,played by "LAND OF THE LOST" co-star,Wesley Eure,who would go on to star in another strange disaster called "C.H.O.M.P.S." in 1979,which is a whole other story!Read more ›
