Hollywood. A tourist hot spot. Lots to see and do — the Hollywood Sign, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Capitol Records building, the old Cinerama Dome (cleverly preserved by the ArcLight Cinema), Amoeba and plenty of boutique restaurants and watering holes … Harriet Schock even penned a memorable anthem to the street scene. Ah yes, Hollywood!
Hollywood is also the home to Coffin Baby, a deranged serial killer and the subject of writer/director Dean Jones’ film of the same name, Coffin Baby, which is due out on DVD from Image Entertainment this coming July 9.
Back in 2004 Tobe Hooper introduced us to Coffin Baby (played then and now by stuntman/actor Christopher Doyle), a fellow that the police dubbed TBK (Toolbox Killer) … he ran up quite the body count at the Lusman Arms and is now back for an encore performance.
Since it is Hollywood, you have to figure that any good slasher/impresario worth his salt would be at his very best with an audience. So when Samantha (Chauntal Lewis — Séance, Hypo, etc.) is kidnapped by TBK it is not as meat for his grinder, but for her to act as a witness (an audience of one if you will) to his off-the-rails rampage … a serial killing spree that will set the record for the largest crime scene in the city’s history.
Coffin Baby is a pure genre flick targeted for those love their Saws and Hostels … it does not disappoint, even hardcore fans will have their hands clapped tightly over their eyes (a peek here and now) when Coffin Baby goes to work.
