Sally is a young woman living in a small Maryland town who lives two lives: a calmly librarian by day, and a brutal serial killer by night where she randomly targets any man or woman whom even slightly upsets her. Sally lives with her reclusive, transvestite younger brother Rudy whom assists in her with the killings. Both Sally and Ruby were traumatized as youngsters when both of them witnessed three lunatics murder their mother and father before they, with 'Daddy's' help, killed the three murderous psychos. In the meantime, a young businessman, named Steve Kellerman, arrives in town to buy a piece of land which a ruthless land developer, named Harvey Benton, wants to develop condos on which is the land of Sally and Ruby's former house, vacant since the night of their parents murder. Not wanting to have change in their lives, Sally plots to eliminate the interlopers to ensure she continue her killing spree lifestyle. Written by matt-282

Not your typical independent horror film!

Chainsaw Sally was amazingly great! I was so surprised with the star quality of the film. From start to finish Sally was extremely entertaining, the acting was wonderful, locations and set design were superb.

The story is of a woman who loses her parents at a young age to 3 escaped mental patients. This sets her on her path of "killing the bad". The shiesty villain in this film is Harvey Benton. He's wanting to build what he calls "Benton's Quest" but the one thing he needs to get his plans underway is a 200 acre plot of land, on this land is the little farmhouse that Sally once called home. Benton calls in the owner of the land, Steve Kellerman, to convince him to sell the property so that he can go about launching his renovation, and modernization of the town, that's when things get messy.

Sally and her brother Ruby set out to rid themselves of the troublesome Harvey Benton. Sally stops to right some wrongs along her way, taking care of an asshole boyfriend, and a really nasty bitch who "needs spelling lessons". I found that the story for Chainsaw Sally was original using the idea that Sally could, in a way, be considered a super heroine. Chainsaw Sally's viewers are most certainly in for a treat when they pick up this film.
