Feeling hammered?

Wow! Just when I thought I had seen everything, along comes ... SLEDGEHAMMER! Behold! Warning! This is not for the meek of heart! The film, a horrendous cornucopia of shot-on-video embarrassment, technically inept, nevertheless does leave a good feeling to it after you have survived the experience. The score is dreadful, there is no acting, most of the VHS gimmicks (like endless slo-mo - c'mon how difficult can it be to lock that bloody door!) do not work, none of the crew would get passed any goddamn film studies course. As its best the "film" sucks, but HEY! You cannot underestimate SLEDGEHAMMER's merits, given its no-budget and limited VHS techs, some of the stuff is actually pretty good. And anyone who has seen let's say Andreas Schnaas' VIOLENT SHIT knows that there are ALWAYS worse "movies" around... Yes, the director is ashamed of SLEDGEHAMMER, but then again he IS David Prior, who gave the world some of the BEST trash films, such as DEADLY PREY, also starring his brother Ted... SLEDGEHAMMER is recommended to any true gore fan, at least you can appreciate the bloody murders, which are pretty gruesome in detail and the overall enthusiasm of the project. I think the dvd released by Intervision is pretty okay, although from an obvious VHS source. The extras are very OK, including a superb appraisal from the DESTROY ALL MOVIES!!! author Zack Carlson and an interview with the director himself, who thought it peculiar someone was still watching SLEDGEHAMMER...
