YMMV: The Tool Box Murders

The original:

The remake:

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The original was a cash-in on the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, which Tobe Hooper, director of this film, also directed.
  • Shocking Swerve: The killer turning out to be a somewhat poorly explained supernatural monstrosity.
  • Squick: Nell finds a trinket in the wall filled with bloody teeth, which looked like they were wrenched out.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The film is very confused about what it wants to be.
