Directory Dennis Donnelly’s infamous 1978 exploitation film ‘The Toolbox Murders’ is now getting the restoration treatment, and will arrive in 4K Ultra HD in January 2022. The film was remade by Tobe Hooper back in 2004.
According tot he rundown: “A ski-masked maniac kills apartment complex tenants with the contents of a toolbox.”
“In a quiet apartment complex in Los Angeles, a deranged handyman goes on a killing spree, savagely murdering ‘immoral’ women with the tools of his trade – claw-hammers, screwdrivers, power drills and even a deadly nail gun! But these gruesome massacres are just the beginning of this landmark epic of violence and depravity that was vilified by critics, banned by censors, and treasured by splatter fans worldwide. This is… THE TOOLBOX MURDERS!”
Blue Underground teases, “Now experience one of the most shocking exploitation films of all time at its bloody best, as The Toolbox Murders has been newly scanned in 4K 16-bit from its uncut original negative, with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, and gushing with new and archival Extras!”
