Jimmyo Burril’s comedic gorefest CHAINSAW SALLY sets up its namesake as a sultry psychopath lurking beneath the veneer of a small town librarian. Initially, Sally (April Monique Burril) focuses her bloodlust only on those who have violated the strict rules of her nine-to-five domain (she chases one girl into the woods and guts her spectacularly for harboring an overdue book). This would have been enough for me. As someone whose biggest pet peeve is rude library patrons, I was all geared up for ninety minutes of screechy children and ignorant cell phonies meeting with cruel, unusual deaths. Alas, an actual plot soon reared its ugly head, providing Sally with a motive beyond the follies of an inconsiderate general public. I hate it when that happens.
