Official trailer and release for ‘Sledge’

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.”

SLEDGE blood

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 killerHe didn’t drown.  He didn’t burn.  He’s just a psychopath with a sledgehammer.
