The Reviews for The Toolbox Murders (1978) 720p

Awful, but you just can't switch off.Reviewed bySleepin_DragonVote: 7/10

The Toolbox Murders is a movie that shockingly is based on real life events. Naturally the real life events are turned into a series of grizzly, shocking crimes, designed to shock in this video nasty. You can understand why it was banned for so long, although it may seem somewhat tame by today's standards. I say the film is awful, that's perhaps a little unfair, but, the acting is certainly atrocious, the direction is shocking, and the pacing is poor. You get twenty minutes of brutal killings, it's a gore fest, then a bore fest. Once you survive the first twenty minutes, you get a dialogue heavy middle and conclusion. Why oh why did the victims have to behave in that odd way, the typical seventies victims. Plenty of nudity, at times it felt more like a soft porno then a horror, it does nothing to enhance the film, I'm sure it was done purely to get audiences.

So I've slated it, but I couldn't switch it off for some strange reason, I had to stick with it, the conclusion is pretty shocking, but satisfying in a way.

Not one I'll repeat watch, but I'm glad I've finally seen it. 5/10

Truly awful - yet strangely watchable.Reviewed byMartPolVote: 7/10

This was a film that my girlfriend and I rented because it said on the box that it had been "banned for 14 years", or somesuch sensationalist tag. We expected, rather naively, a powerful, shocking attack on society a la Texas Chain Saw Massacre. What we had was some bloke in an unfrightening woolly hat going around and, yep, you guessed it, killing people with a variety of tools. Of these, the initial murder with a drill is the most unpleasant. As the film goes on, however, it clutches at straws, ultimately having to resort to that oh-so-scary object of carpentry, the chisel.

Unfortunately, entirely pointless deaths only account for about half the film. Where it really goes wrong is when it begins to justify these with some bizarre "taking revenge on the evils of society" explanation delivered by the one character we were really certain WASN'T the killer, by virtue of his being such an obvious candidate.

But for all its faults (and there are many), The Toolbox Murders remains compulsively watchable. This is because its hack dialogue and direction are so unbelievably bad that the viewer is left wondering just what god-awful impersonation of dialogue or technique is going to crop up next. Whole chunks of background information go effectively unexplained, phrases are repeated by characters unnecessarily, and one scene goes on so damn long you can't help thinking it might be a deliberate Chain Saw Massacre-style experiment on the viewer's nerves. But no, it just goes on too long.

Two-out-of-ten stuff, then - but one way or another, you won't hit the stop button before the end.

Terrible, but true-to-life.Reviewed byCadaver_Vote: 7/10

Cameron Mitchell stars as Vance Kingsley, the owner of an apartment building who kills "sinful" women (using assorted tools, of course) who commit "unatural acts." He then kidnaps a teenaged girl (Pamelyn Ferdin, who's wonderful) to replace his own deceased daughter.

What a mess! The character motivations are muddled and the plot is inconsistent in the extreme. Vance claims that he's a "humane and compassionate" killer because he killed the women as quickly as he could to avoid suffering. But during the murder sequences, he clearly takes his time and seems undisturbed by his actions as they scream in agonizing pain (who wrote this?). But this is probably what makes the film so compelling to watch, as well. We've all heard of murders that seem to have had no logical motive and killers who claim that they are doing the work of God by murdering "sinful" people (while they themselves have commited the ultimate sin by killing). All of Vance's inconsistencies are true-to-life; many killers kill because they are simply crazy. And because of this, THE TOOLBOX MURDERS is more than just a bad film, it's a realistic one (but probably by accident).
