A husband and wife open a video store in a new town, and come to find out that the locals only rent horror films and the "occasional triple X'er", and make their own snuff videos. Written by

The movie was edited over the course of eight hours at a local access cable station. Originally, Gary P. Cohen had contracted the station's editing equipment for two midnight-to 6:00 am time slots, but after the first night the station owner informed Cohen that he would not have given him permission to edit the movie there had he known its content. Rather than renege on the contract, however, the station owner simply cut down Cohen's time slot to 12 am to 2 am. See more »
I worked as a video clerk when I was a high school junior and, being the horror junkie that I am, I had access to a ton of movies. Every Saturday night I'd pick up a few obscure titles to bring home for the weekend and gorge myself on popcorn. Video Violence was one such film, and I loved it. Pleasingly cheesy and ultra-low budget, filmed in my homestate, and so horribly acted, it was perfect!! Husband and wife move to small town to run video store, where the locals only rent horror movies and the occasional porno. Someone unseen starts slipping homemade snuff films into the store and the husband investigates. Borrowing some from RACE WITH THE DEVIL aside, I really enjoyed this movie, as well as the sequel. Howard & Eli are over the top and the whole feel of the movie is such camp it's classic. I would say if you haven't seen it check it out.
