A Toolbox Murders for today's cineaste

Lauded as a return to form after a long stretch of failures, Tobe Hooper's remake of the eighties slasher stalwart doesn't quite deserve the hype which it's received, but it's still a fun enough movie. Angela Bettis (of MAY fame) leads an enjoyable cast, but the real star of the film is violence, in the form of drills, hammers, and other toolbox gimmickery. Slasher fans will not be let down by the bloodletting on display here. If splashing blood and hacked bodies aren't your thing, then you might enjoy the creepy set design and camerawork, easily the best in a Hooper flick since CHAINSAW, or the characters, who are generally annoying or endearing in very realistic ways. It's not a Bergman film, obviously, but TOOLBOX works well for what it is and will surprise and delight those who had written Tobe Hooper off as a lost cause.
