I have never seen such a reprehensible slasher movie in all my days, but that's not to say that it's not transfixing.

Audience Reviews for The Nail Gun Massacre


In the mid to late 80's, Slasher films were becoming stagnant and uninspired. So many retreads of Friday the 13th and Halloween had been clouding up theatres and Drive ins. With Nail gun Massacre we get a movie that is packed with bad acting and poorly constructed kill sequences. This is the type of movie that you watch with friends when you have a bad movie night. Now, if you love low budget B movies, then this is one worth checking out. Just don't expect a great film with this one, and it's fairly over the top, cheesy and ridiculous. This film boasts everything you'd expect from a low budget schlock fest and it is a tongue in cheek movie that you really shouldn't take seriously whatsoever. As it stands, this is a decent film, and is one to enjoy for it's purely "so bad, it's good angle. I enjoyed the low budget tongue in cheek aspect, and if you're in the mood for these types of movies, then give it a shot. Nail Gun Massacre is a movie for low budget film fans. If you're going into this one expecting a great Slasher movie, then you'll be greatly disappointed. The concept of the movie is interesting, but it could have been much better as well. This movie plays out like a schlock fest, and it is a movie that should only be enjoyed by Cult film fans. Since this was made in the middle of the 80's, it's no wonder why this one is derivative from other Slasher films. The tone of the movie is more comedic than terrifying and despite this; Nail Gun Massacre should be seen as a rental for a bad movie night that you have planned with friends. Thinking about what this film could have been is a bit sad, and despite its idea of a killer offing people off with a nail gun may seem like a great idea, the result we see on-screen is a movie that is a "so bad it's good title" that ends up being quite silly.

Welp, I believe I may have found a movie that can rival "Manos: The Hands of Fate" as the worst horror movie of all time. Congratulations.

Somehow nail gun killing just isn't that big a deal. It's like, "oh no. I got shot with a nail." Then they had to keep shooting them like five or six times, they die, and they run off. It's that exciting.
