Toolbox Murders quotes

Toolbox Murders poster
Christian Bale stated in an interview that he tried hard to contact Tobe Hooper for the role of Steven Barrows and even personally recorded and sent a screen test of himself, but was never called back. He instead focused on scoring the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman Begins (2005).GoofsWhen the killer reappears through the window he enters making a spectacular jump, even there is not enough space behind the window to execute it, as it is shown after he falls down.QuotesLuis Saucedo: Hey, good evening, Daisy.Daisy Rain: Hey Louis, what happened?Luis Saucedo: They were working on the electrical system today. Junction box shorted out while someone was working. Blew him right through a third floor window.Daisy Rain: Oh, my God! That's awful.Crazy creditsEvery years thousands of people come to Hollywood to pursue their dreams. Some succeed. Some move back home... And some just disappear.Alternate versionsThe US release was heavily censored to get an "R" rating rather than an "NC-17". The following scenes were edited: The "drill kill" of the girl in the apartment was about 20-30 seconds longer, showing much more blood fly out of the back of her head, and the drill going all the way through her mouth. After the killer retracts the drill, he then begins drilling again into her head. Also, this scene is well-lit as opposed to the darkened version in the "R" rated cut.The man getting his head sawed in half; this scene was much longer. More blood and grue flies out as the killer saws, and the aftermath of the top half of the man's head being ripped off was shown, and the camera lingers longer on it when it hits the ground.The man being strapped to the table and killed was a bit longer. There were more hits with the hammer, more screams from the man, and a better view of the powder being poured on his head. A more grisly after-view of the man's lye-laden head was present afterward.ConnectionsFeatured in Top 10 Worst Top 10's (2013)Soundtracks
