Before Man Bites Dog. Before The Blair Witch Project. Before Paranormal Activity…there was America’s Deadliest Home Video!
Lost for 25 years, the original found-footage shocker written and directed by Jack Perez (Some Guy Who Kills People), produced by Mick Wynhoff and starring Danny Bonaduce (TV’s The Partridge Family).
Prepare yourself for a rip-roaring ride through the incredibly raw and realistic shot-on-video found footage shocker that started them all! America’s Deadliest Home Video unreels the story of Doug (Danny Bonaduce), an overzealous home video enthusiast who decides to ditch his unfaithful wife for the open road with his beloved camcorder in tow. Doug’s troubles triple when he inadvertently records three criminals known as The Clint Dryer Gang deep-sixing their latest escape vehicle. The egotistical leader Dryer (Mick Wynhoff) then abducts Doug, forcing him to record their atrocious blood-spilling exploits and eventually coercing Doug into joining their heinous crime spree inciting deadly results.
This once obscure but now considered seminal SOV feature abounds with violence, sleaze and sexual tension topped off with a deft touch of comedy from writer / director Jack Perez (Some Guy Who Kills People), and it’s now available on DVD for the first time ever loaded with illuminating extras! Experience ADHV and see if you can survive the ride!!
