Also known in this country as “The Killer with the Drill”, “ The Toolbox Murders ” premiered in 1978 – and thus in the same year as “ Halloween ”. But it didn’t even begin to garner the attention that was given to John Carpenter’s milestone slasher. And Germany is one of those countries in which the film has always had a particularly difficult time: First, in the German translation of the eponymous tool box , only the drill remained, before another tool also conspired against it: the scissors.

In any case, the distributor Colors of Entertainment announced on Facebook last January that it would publish the «rough slasher» for the first time including 4K scanning in the media book. However, there are no further details on this yet.

This is The Toolbox Murders

Until one day, 15-year-old Laurie ( Pamelyn Ferdin ) disappears without a trace and her brother Joey ( Nicolas Beauvy ) decides to get to the bottom of the matter. Suspicion quickly falls on the strange Kingsley ( Wesley Eure ), but before Joey knows it, he too is in grave danger…
