Toolbox Murders is a remake of the 1978 film of the same name. In spring of 2003, "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" director Tobe Hooper announced he had plans to direct the remake. Hooper announced his cast as Angela Bettis from the cult hit "May", and Juliet Landau, from the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" television series. Sheri Moon (Baby, from a " House of 1000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects") would be making a cameo. Many early reports of screenings were positive and many horror websites said this film will basically put Hooper back on the map. The film was originally rated NC-17, but quite a few gory moments were trimmed for an R rating. The scenes were released as extras on the US release of "Toolbox Murders" DVD. The majority of the film turned out to a in-name-only remake of the original. "Toolbox Murders" struck many Hooper fans and horror fans as a welcome return for Tobe Hooper who had been on a decline in films since the early 90's. "Toolbox Murders " received only a limited release in 2003 and 2004. The film was released on DVD in the United States in 2005.

*Every year, thousands of people come to Los Angeles to pursue their dreams. Some succeed. Some go home. And some just disappear.


In Hollywood, the young teacher Nell (Bettis) and her husband, Steven (Roam), move to an old building called "Lusman Arms". Some sixty years ago, the place was glamorous, but presently is completely dilapidated, and many of its residents have disappeared while living there. While her husband is working in the hospital, the lonely Nell hears weird noises and becomes afraid of their home. While jogging, she is introduced and becomes close to her neighbor Julia Cunningham (Landau) and they schedule a hike together on the next day. Julia never shows up, and Nell looks for her in the building. She finds that there is an evil being, descended from death itself, living hidden behind a wall with many corpses.
