5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 80's horror 18 July 2007
Basic plot.In a small town a couple of new residents open a video store which does great. The only worry is the towns folk only take gorey horror vids out. When the video shop owner is sent a snuff movie through the post he decides to find out just why the town acts so weird and what the hell is going on. In the sequal some of the towns folk have made a cable show, showing there and other peoples snuff acts. But is it real or fake? Video violence is a brillant movie. Filled with some really nice gore effects but with a nice plot to that gets you thinking till the end. The acting is spot on to with the performances having a kinda eerie (thou not as cheesey) 2000 maniacs feel to them from the town. The sequal thou not as good is still fun to watch (especially some of the american tv parodies on show) and much like the first this has a great ending which will make you think. Great extras to, a must for horror and gore hounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars When renting is not enough! 3 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase
Made in the mid 80's this tale concerns a small town of people who all have VCR's (I presume at this period in time that would be considered unusual but I was to young to recall) and all rent loads of low budget gore movies. A new person moves into town to take over the video store but finds the locals very strange, even weirder he finds an unlabelled tape in the deposit box that might just be a snuff murder. Are there people being killed, and if so who is doing it, how many are in on it? Gory, offbeat and quite cheesy it will appeal to H.G.Lewis, Troma and Nathan Schiff fans, the DVD is American but not region coded and comes with the reasonably amusing yet less impressive sequel in which the murders continue... over an illegal cable broadcast!

5.0 out of 5 stars Total bargain and a fun time! 10 Aug 2007
By benslack - Published on
Please, pick up this DVD. If you're a fan of low-budget consumer camcorder shot movies from the 80s (and especially if you tried to make them) you'll love it. Video Violence 1 is actually a great movie, with a great story. It centers around a small community with a secret that gets "exposed" when someone returns the wrong video to the local video rental store. Pretty neat! Acting is above average for most lower budget flicks from this time. PLUS, there are tons of shots of the interior of an awesome video rental store with big box rentals. Now that's already a part of americana's past. Video Violence 2 is not quite the thriller that part 1 is, but it has it's moments. It's a much more humerous sequel. Still good, though.
Pick it up and have a pizza party!

3.0 out of 5 stars Effective No-Budget Shocker 25 Jan 2012
By Julian L Martin - Published on
Verified Purchase
I had no experience with "SOV" horror films before watching Video Violence, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with it. The gore effects are excellent, and in a world obsessed with CGI nowadays, it's always good to see practical gore effects done so well. For the most part, it's a fairly light-hearted and over the top little movie, but there are a few scenes which are genuinelly unnerving. The acting is OK-(highlights include The Sheriff and Eli) and although the script has a few plotholes, you really have to overlook them for this sort of movie. Also worth getting purely to see the inside of a 80's video store, which I really enjoyed seeing, and will give many viewers a great sense of nostalgia. It also has one of the coolest opening music themes of all time. However, I must say the movie does overstay its welcome a little, clocking in at over 95 minutes.

3.5 out of 5

The other film on the DVD is Video Violence 2. Which I did not like at all. The whole thing felt so pointless and didn't really have a plot. The gore effects weren't as impressive either. The scene with the sheriff and his electric chair was the sole highlight in the whole film. At least it only goes for 75 minutes.

Gary P. Cohen made these films on a NO-string budget in 1986 -87 and IS the dirt-bag answer to anti-snuffs-ploitation and pays very slap-happy $2 tribute to hershell gordon lewis via the old-days of D.I.Y. horror while making fun of off-the-grid television stations like channel 56 which had wally george on it back in the 1980's and public access tv in general and proves anybody with just a whisky napkin of an idea, bring your friends in for the fun of it, cam-corder, new jersey, azusa, covina, small town usa, no expectations neighborhood cinema, anti-domestic bully, video-tape era, trade amongst your friends gore film and i love stuff like this, becasue at the heart of this film is the soul of a civil libertarian punk-rocker whom just wanted to be seen/heard and was a ma 'n' pa video store owner himself and i am very proud he still remembers the old-school reagan days of america when we the people were left to our own "devices" especially those whom cared only about the blue-collar crowd and loathed the don of wall-street "trump" just because we could.

this brought back a whole S-load of memories of my childhood during the D.O.I.= dacade of innocence and knee-jerk neighbor's whom we kept as friends because...those-were-the-days when i grew up in azusa california and i soooo sorely miss'em and want them back, all the pleasure, pain, warts 'n' all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Relevance In The Internet Age 29 April 2010
By Daniel Kepley - Published on
I found VIDEO VIOLENCE, a shot-on-video horror movie from 1987, to have an interesting social commentary in its depiction of a small town obsessed with making their own "splatter" films. We live in a time where people are videotaping things like tornadoes, fights, and stunt attempts; the Internet, and YouTube in particular, has made it easier for people to achieve some kind of recognition. Watching VIDEO VIOLENCE today, it's not hard to find parallels between the storyline and what's happening with the Internet today. The sequel, which takes the splatter to public-access television, further exemplifies this point, especially the commercials. Intentionally or not, VIDEO VIOLENCE is right up there with THE RUNNING MAN (of the same year) and David Cronenberg's VIDEODROME as a strangely prophetic depiction of the lengths people will go to see sex and violence.

Gary P. Cohen states in the interview that this movie came about after a mother entered the video store where he worked (with a 5 year-old daughter in tow, no less) and rented I DISMEMBER MAMA. The mother asked if it had any nudity, and Cohen said that he didn't know but it had violence. The mother said that as long as it had no nudity, it would be acceptable for kids to watch. (There's a re-enactment of that moment in VIDEO VIOLENCE.) This also adds a satirical element in that it takes on the concerns of most people that violent movies cause people to commit violent acts. (The "Pizza Boy" scene in VIDEO VIOLENCE 2 furthers this point.) If one were to remake VIDEO VIOLENCE, it would make for an interesting satire on the Internet era and how people are affected by it.

I've never heard of these movies until I saw a guy that goes by the name, "Coolduder", and I just had to have it. The acting is a bot cheesy, but what can you expect, it's a great low budget movie, that is surprisingly entertaining, this is a MUST OWN for movie goers :)
