The film had a remake, simply titled ''Toolbox Murders'' and directed by TobeHooper of ''Film/TheTexasChainSawMassacre1974'' fame, in 2004. Besides being set in an apartment complex and having an antagonist who kills with the contents of a toolbox, it was largely InNameOnly, and went as far as featuring supernatural elements. After simmering in DevelopmentHell for several years a sequel entitled ''Coffin Baby'' was released in 2013..

Hair of Gold isn't just about being blonde; male characters need to be noble, chaste, knightly, etc. and female characters need to be sweet, wholesome, pretty, innocent, etc. This entry lacks the context necessary to qualify.
