    Toolbox Murders

    Part 14 of Hoop-tober 8.0

    Finally put the “Hoop” in Hoop-tober for this year and have to admit I’m disappointed. 

    Although it’s predictably grimy, mean and gross, unfortunately there is very little to distinguish Toolbox Murders from basically any other slasher of its time besides some extra grisly murders that are admittedly pretty insane.

    Still a fucking masterpiece in every respect. Hadn't seen it in years so I was a little (only a little) worried that some aspects wouldn't hold up now that I've been in "film school" for about four years now.

    In fact it was incredibly heartening to revisit a film like Jaws, one I remember loving from a very early age, and find just how masterful it is on so many levels. I always remember loving the characters, the story and…
