 New York, NY - Before Man Bites Dog and The Blair Witch Project there was America’s Deadliest Home Video, the original found footage shot-on-video shocker written and directed by Jack Perez (Some Guy Who Kills People), produced by Mick Wynhoff, and starring ‘The Partridge Family’‘s own Danny Bonaduce and Melora Walters (Dead Poets Society)   
 
Synopsis:
 
America's Deadliest Home Video is the story of Doug (Danny Bonaduce), a home video enthusiast who hits the road with his video camera after catching his wife having an affair.  While making a video journal of his travels, he inadvertently records the Clint Dryer gang – three felons on the lam – pushing their getaway car over a cliff.  The gang abducts him and forces him to videotape their crime spree as they rob and murder their way from town to town.  The gang’s leader, Clint (Mick Wynhoff), becomes more daring and sadistic for the camera, and a dangerous relationship forms between his girlfriend, Gloria (Melora Walters) and Doug.  Seen entirely through the eyes of Doug’s video camera, America’s Deadliest Home Video draws the viewer into a dark world of violence and terror.

Lunchmeat founder and editor-in-chief Josh Schafer on the upcoming release of America’s Deadliest Home Video:  
“I’m absolutely thrilled to work with Camp Motion Pictures to bring ADHV back to life and offer it to a broad new audience. The essence of LUNCHMEAT is to appreciate and celebrate the forgotten gems of the video era, and shot-on-video films were such an integral part of that movement. What’s special about ADHV is that it’s an incredibly obscure yet utterly essential addition to the growing list of cinematic history attached to SOV filmmaking. Its execution demonstrates just how powerful a shot-on-video film can be. ADHV’s method of using the home video camera as a device to insert you directly into the film and put you in step with the characters was so incredibly innovative and unique for the time, but its obscured existence prevented it from being fully recognized by a wide range of film fans and critics alike.  This re-animation is going to change all that. I’m just really glad a whole new host of eyes are finally going to be able to experience ADHV’s ingenious application of the shot-on-video method and see something decidedly different, interesting, and retrospectively innovative from the immense SOV output of the 80s and 90s. I’m excited to see what people think.”
