Toolbox Murders 2 gets an October 12th UK DVD & Download release just in time for Halloween.
The handyman of horror is back with a new box of tricks in in this terrifying sequel to Tobe Hooper‘s 2004 reimagining of the 1978 cult favourite. The 2004 counterpart has become a classic in its own right.
Picking up directly after the events of Hooper’s film, we follow ‘Coffin Baby’, Hollywood’s most twisted killers, as he plans to put the screws to a new victim – Samantha, the sister of his prey from his previous rampage. Samantha finds herself held captive in a house of horrors and forced to undergo the most unspeakable tortures.
This is the authorised and complete version of Toolbox Murders 2, which stars Chauntal Lewis as Samantha, Brian Krause, Chris Doyle, and two-time Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern. It is directed by Dean Jones.
This sequel was due for a U.S. release back in 2013 but has been held up by litigation with its director, Dean Jones, who took the principal photography and other footage filmed for Toolbox Murders 2 without the permission of the producers and used it to create a separate film entitled Coffin Baby based on a reworking of the Toolbox Murders script.
Jones claims that his Coffin Baby movie is completely independent of the Toolbox Murders franchise. Despite the stalled release of Toolbox Murders 2, its producers are currently developing Toolbox Murders 3.
