Toe Tags

Toe Tags – 2003 – United States

The residents of an apartment complex are being knifed to death one by one. Two hapless police detectives (a man and a woman) investigate but are thwarted as their suspects continually get murdered. Clues reveal that every victim was once in a romantic relationship with the female detective (who is beautiful, promiscuous, and mentally unstable). The twist ending to this mystery makes no sense but is surprising and amusing.

Toe Tags combines elements of the mystery and slasher genres. The plot revolves around determining the killer’s identity, but the action involves topless women being gorily skewered with a knife. Lacking the logic of a good mystery and the intensity of a good slasher film, Toe Tags is not successful in either regard.

Toe Tags’ comical characters have lots of personality. There is a perverted police photographer, a cranky mortician, and a mean landlady who lives in an apartment full of hunting trophies. Although the acting is poor, the actors all have great Oklahoma accents which give them some credibility. The director, Darla Enlow, also stars as the female detective and wears a tantalizingly short skirt.

Rating: 4/10 Shrunken Heads. The crazy camerawork in Toe Tags is out of control. There is a shot from the perspective of coffee as it is poured into a cup.
