Not so much a slasher as a smoosher flick, Sledgehammer has the added distinction of being the first horror movie to be made and distributed entirely on video.
(Hey, wait! Where are you going? Come back here!)
Forget everything you know about the legions of direct-to-video dreck that followed, because this movie just happens to be one of the most indelibly weird movies of the era. True, it’s so weird that at a certain point I had to start hallucinating messages in it… but then again, maybe it’s only natural that a movie that changes gear midway through would inspire a review that does the same.
