It's hard to say why I became a fan of shot-on-video horror from the 1980s. The stinking sewer of a sub-genre can be hard to watch. Seriously. Nobody can act. The special effects are terrible. The video quality is on par with a family movie or a second generation amateur porno rental. Editing, direction, and storylines are non-existent. With that said, I feel like today's fans are the benefactors of serious cherry picking. Old school fans turned movie distributors have resurrected the crème de la crème and lovingly put these obscure titles on DVD. After watching some of the best examples of '80s SOV horror like Sledgehammer, Video Violence 1 and 2, Nail Gun Massacre, Wood Chipper Massacre, and The Nosepicker (aka The Changer), I realized some of these cult movies had a little more going on than their merit-deficient counterparts.
