    I had the misfortune to see TOOLBOX MURDERS in cinema yesterday. The guy has lost it - he's finished. Even though I love TCM/TCM2/Lifeforce, nowdays he can't make a good movie to save his life.

    I'll be picking up the Toolbox Murders dvd when it is released next month or whenever. I love Angela Bettis and this movie looks pretty decent. I haven't heard the best reviews, but I'm not going to let that persuade me this time since I really want to see this.
     
  4. There was another movie called Mortuary back in the early 80s with real life husband/wife Chris and Lynda Day George, and I dug that one. This one sounds good and I'll def check it out.

    I also loved that 80's Mortuary and actually talked my grandfather into bringing me to it as a kid-one of my first horror movies in the theatre. Any word on this one being released on DVD by BU or AB? I hope when they do they include that TV ad that included footage of a guy being pulled into a grave that had NOTHING to do with what actually occured in the movie-classic stuff!

    I'm not going to get my hopes up either...Hooper used to be my fave, but I've been let down way too many times in the past (CHAINSAW 2, INVADERS FROM MARS, CROCODILE, THE MANGLER, SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION, NIGHT TERRORS...need I go on?)...

    Yes,thats the one,the young female lead had been on THE WALTONS.I think Christopher George(who did lots of 70s and 80s horrors like GRIZZLY ,DAY OF THE ANIMALS and PIECES) died during production.

    I too was pleased with TOOLBOX MURDERS, by far his best movie since FUNHOUSE.

    Here in Germany the DVD Rental version for Mortuary was delayed, but is supposed to come out this week.
    In February there is a 2-Disc Set coming out available to buy. So I guess that in the US Xploited Cinema probably will offer the German DVD.
    You can see here

    that even the Anchor Bay UK DVD of the movie has a release date of March 27th 2006 in the UK.
