I got to see this for the first time last night by way of the Intervision DVD (RIP Larry Gold! :weng:) which is a great thing in and of itself not only because it has an assload of extras but because it contains the trailer for THINGS.

At any rate, this movie is amazing. Some highlights:

-male lead is a former Playgirl model who shows affection to his girlfriend by bopping her on the head with a can of Bud, then balancing a can of Bud on her head, and then pouring mustard on her.
-big bearded dude who looks like wrestler Arn Anderson teleports through a door
-Mr. Playgirl doesn't like shirts, but he loves to play guitar
-random slow motion
-awesome Amiga style Video Toaster effects
-boobies and gore
-a food fight scene that is comprised mostly of a guy yelling WOOOOOOOOOO far longer than anyone should ever yell WOOOOOOOOO.
-the omnipresent shadow of the boom mic
-awesome synthesizer soundtrack

Don't forget the guy's irritating impression of Bill Murray in CADDYSHACK.

There are so many WTF moments in this movie, I don't know if you could name them all.

I would recommend SLEDGEHAMMER over Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN 2 any day of the week. They're the same movie only SLEDGEHAMMER is 100X better.

I wasn't going to buy this. Now I am.

I also caved in on INVITATION TO HELL / THE LAST NIGHT.

I hope there aren't any more "awesome" shot on video gems in the pipeline.

Clive, Sledgehammer is a game changer.

Intervision also has Things in the pipeline which is a whole different beast all together.

Not that piece of shit that someone put out a year or two ago, right?

gotta be Things starring Amber Lynn and featuring moustaches and mullets.

Do you already have BOARDINGHOUSE! If not, get it immediately.

Haha - good call. Yeah, I've got it on VHS (it was released in the UK on the HorrorVision label). Absolute dribbling madness. And, of course, I still need to buy the OOP Code Red DVD which is going for astronomical figures.

Rewatching it as I missed the end because of sleepytime. ^_^

Note I did not say, I'm watching the part I missed. Oh no, I'm rewatching it. :biggrin:

Not sure why this dude keeps bonking his girl on the head. :haha:

Alison Jane

I had to fast forward through that slow-motion walking through the field scene... :wtf:

Alison Jane

None of these couples go together. The muscle guy should be with the blonde chick. The Hall and Oates guy, there should be two of him. And the rest of them should just be dead.

I'm glad that the main dude can have a career in music to fall back on if and when he loses his good looks.

Who wants to bet he wrote that song?...

Alison Jane

This blond guy is not as good when he's serious.

Hall and Oates is having sex!

Alison Jane
05-07-2011, 08:53 PM
Is it just me or are all the guys in this way more into the guys than any of their girlfriends?

Alison Jane

The excessive slow-motion kills the second half. :/

Alison Jane
05-07-2011, 09:13 PM
Observation/question... Is the killer like eight feet tall or are all the doorways in this movie really low?

Clive Smith

Great. Now I feel like I've seen it already.

I need to get this just to see how patience-trying the slo-mo field walk is.

Alison Jane

I didn't think of that. :(

Moon, stop with the internet movie watching parties.

No harm done. I think the only spoiler was that Hall & Oats guy has sex.

Alison Jane
05-09-2011, 09:11 AM
I look at that as a selling point rather than a spoiler. :p

TERROR AT TENKILLER, tonight!

Looks like the VHS sold out already (http://www.mondotees.com/Sledgehammer-VHS_p_281.html).

I don't know why that's making me so angry. Like, fists raised to the sky angry.

Ian Jane
05-11-2011, 02:27 PM
I don't know either. That's weird.

I think I'm going to watch this tonight. I wouldn't have read this thread early on if I knew I was going to get to review it. Now I have to try to say things not already pointed out.

Boarding House is awesome. Is it really fetching mad money? Why?? They only make 100 copies or something?

Clive Smith

I watched SLEDGEHAMMER last night. Holy WOW!

Ian Jane

It's AWESOME, right? I think we can all agree on this and now declare it not opinion but FACT.

Todd Jordan
05-18-2011, 08:56 AM
There is no denying that fact. Unless you don't like bad movies. Hold a triple feature with Sledgehammer, Boarding House, and Things and find out who the real men (and one woman) are.

When the little kid record player shows up I busted out laughing. At least it looks like a little kid record player to me.

AWESOME barely covers it.

I watched it all. Every last drop.

What did you think about the part where the Hall and Oats guy has sex?

Todd Jordan
05-18-2011, 10:41 AM
I couldn't concentrate. I wanted to see if his pubes were feathered.

Clive Smith

It was a tender moment, exquisitely handled.

They didn't move around much though.

I also watched the trailer for THINGS, but that looks like something that would make me angry.

You DO need to see it, at least once. There is literally nothing else out there that even comes close to THINGS.

I have an autographed one sheet for THINGS that I need to get framed and on the wall.

I know that this would be a grave mistake. And yet.
