The grand tale of a zombie holding a arm. He also travels the world learning about life, and the meaning of it all. He also meets a girl zombie holding a body. Will they fall in love? Will they complete that human body? Watch and find out.
A psychotic redneck, who owns a dilapidated hotel in rural East Texas, kills various people who upset him or his business, and he feeds their bodies to a large crocodile that he keeps as a pet in the swamp beside his hotel.
In Hollywood, the young teacher Nell and her husband, the resident Steven Barrows, move to an old building called Lusman Arms. Some sixty years ago, the place was glamorous, but presently is completely decadent. Many dwellers have disappeared along the years. While her husband is working in the hospital, the lonely Nell hears some weird noises and becomes afraid of the place. While jogging, she is introduced to (and becomes close to) her neighbor Julia Cunningham, and they schedule a hike together on the next day. Julia never shows up, and Nell looks for her in the building, finding a hiding block behind the wall, where an evil being, which was born from death, lives with many dead bodies. Written by

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). See more »

Hey, good evening, Daisy.
Hey Louis, what happened?
They were working on the electrical system today. Junction box shorted out while someone was working. Blew him right through a third floor window.
Oh, my God! That's awful.

Great reception at the Hollywood Egyptian premier.
This Hollywood Egyptian showing apparently was the US opening of this very scary and shock-filled treat, and a part of the theater's annual Sci-Fi and Horror festival. The audience was obviously enjoying Tobe Hooper's return to his roots with this superb version of the old cult gore flick from the late 70s of the same name. Tobe Hooper himself was present and gave some insight into the whole development and storyline of the film, and he got an outstanding reception. The first film to ever make me really jump was the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", and this one is only the second one to do it, and I've seen practically every horror film made in the years between. With that being said, I suggest that if you're ready for a scare, this will deliver. It has some of the good elements from other Hooper films that were good but missed the mark somehow, like The Funhouse. In fact, the killer in this flick seems to be part Leatherface and part Funhouse mutation, with a whole lot of new stuff too. Argento has an equal in Tobe Hopper with this American "giallo" film, Toolbox Murders.
