He didn’t drown. He didn’t burn. He’s just a psychopath with a sledgehammer.
SLEDGE, a ‘bloody’ good horror-comedy in the tradition of Tucker and Dale vs. Evil and Shaun of the Dead, premieres on VOD September 2nd and DVD on October 7th.
A spoof of the horror genre, and littered with nods and references to fright flicks of yesteryear, the film fixes on a psychopath who not only believes he’s in a movie and video game but that he’s the hero of this story.
“Sledge is a horror comedy that takes a loving poke to the horror classics we all grew up with”, says writer and co-director Kristian Hanson. “Adam Lynch is an original slasher who loves to talk and make jokes as he viciously mutilates the dumb campers who always return to a site of mass murders for no apparent reason.”
Hanson says SLEDGE is a movie made for the horror fan like himself.
“The overall idea of Sledge was to make a horror film that I would want to see. I love horror comedy and instead of having the typical brooding giant mute, I went for the funny and psychotic killer who always seems to be shorter than his victims. I wanted to pay homage to the greats like Jason, Freddy, Leatherface and Pinhead but put my own personal spin on it with my type of inappropriate humor. Adam Lynch is a slasher that brings the funny and the body count.”
SLEDGE is directed by John B Sovie II and Kristian Hanson, and stars Dustin Bowman, Stephanie Tupper, Rachel Cornell and Hanson as Adam Lynch.
