Another notch in my guilty pleasures list has finially made it to dvd! The Nail Gun Massacre has been released on a pal disc from germany!! Unfortunately I don't know of any US importers that carry this yet but I'm sure it'll surface soon. Now if only Microwave Massacre would get released.
Don't ask me why I like this movie so much, I should know better. Probably because it was one of the first horror movies I ever rented by myself at around 9 years old (back in the day mom & pop clerks never used to care about age/film ratings)...and that very same tape now sits proudly in my collection.
Anyone seen this yet? How is the quality?

I love this movie. I must hunt it down. I love this forum, I am always finding out cool movies are out that I did not know about. ;)

I saw this a long time ago on vhs but can't really remember if it was any good. I know if it was region 1 I'd definately pick it up though.

Pretty good... I believe this was originally released by Magnum Entertainment But I did like Magnums other release better called
"Revenge Of The radioactive Reporter" :D :D

Never heard of this bad boy, but it looks pretty good. I haven't seen a good 80's slasher in months. :eek1:

I used to always see this one on the shelf but never picked it up becuase I thought of it as a rip off of TCM. Is this really worth checking out?

Compare it to something if you have seen it.

This movie is sooo shitty - but it's still fun. Look for the "Nail Gun Killer" to deliver some cheesy lines after killing someone. I'm sure Anchor Bay is on this title - they just don't want to release any info until they are sure they can present it in DTS...ya right.

I love this movie! I'd pick up the Astro disc in a second if I was PAL capable.
