Audience Reviews for Toolbox Murders

  • Jun 22, 2010
    As far as remakes are concerned, Toolbox Murders is a pretty good film that captures the essence of the original, and modernizing them. In this version directed by Tobe Hooper, he tends to give the film a much darker atmosphere which is strength of the film because the original was pretty sleazy in its conception. Also a standout with this version is the fact that there is a slightly better plot this time around and the kills are much better done with more blood to appeal to gore fans everywhere. Toolbox Murders is a fine return to form for Horror master Tobe Hooper as his work tended to suffer quite a bit in the 1990's, which is a great shame because Hooper's earlier movies were terrific and are classics in the genre. However despite this short return to form, Hooper's work would fall apart again with his follow up, Mortuary. Toolbox Murders on the other hand shows that Tobe Hooper still can a good horror yarn when he truly puts his mind to it, and I think that he still has the drive to make other good movies. Hooper's direction with this film is top notch, and though it isn't perfect, this remake is pretty good and the cast do a fine job and are well cast in their parts. If you love Slasher films, then check this one out, it's definitely one of the better remakes in recent memory and it may not be the best film that Hooper has directed, but it definitely is the best film that he's directed in a long time.

    I was actually mildly surprised and amused. Sure it has its moments of less then perfect acting and of course lines of cheesy dialogue, telling not showing, and unnecessary shots that just put it a tad over the top, but it was pretty well executed for being a low budget thriller. Everything worked well up until the last fifteen minutes where you could tell the writers were forced to quickly put together an ending to tighten up the time limit, this of course put in a lot of dumb dialogue and throwing in loose ends of the plot just to make it come full circle. Better then some of the other films in its genre.

    Not that good at all.

    Tobe Hooper is still being a moronic horror director since The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, but he is still brutal and gory also. The plot is boring and typical, as well as the cliches, and the acting sucks, but some of the death scenes are fun and liked the concept used in a hotel for a horror movie, although I couldn't believe that the owners could be so fuc#!ng stupid. 36/100
