Alternate titles : Jackhammer

Tagline : "Self destruction is only the beginning."

CoverJack (Aaron Gaffrey) used to be a wealthy company executive, until he lost everything due to his ongoing problems with drug addiction. Now he's all but homeless, and sleeping in an engineering shop where he works as a night watchman.

Unfortunately, a couple of his pusher friends come round one evening looking to collect their dues. But when he's unable to pay them, they inject him with a lethal cocktail of drugs intending to kill him, but instead this has the unfortunate side effect of turning him into a drug fuelled psychopath.

Grabbing a pneumatic drill (or Jackhammer as the Americans like to call them) off the shelf, he quickly makes mincemeat of the 2, before skulking off in a drug induced state of delirium. But come the morning, it seems that Jack is still in his drug crazed rage, as his boss soon finds out when he comes to open up.

To make matters worse, it seems that his boss has just sold the business and the new buyers are about to get more than they bargained for, when they come round to look over the place. Lets just hope that Jack runs out of extension lead before they run out of places to hide.

This low budget indie shocker by Joe Castro isn't bad as far as Z-grade films go, but isn't exactly a cinematic masterpiece either (and that's putting it mildly). The film is mostly let down by the hammy acting and unlikely plot lines, but the gore effects aren't bad.

One for lovers of zero budget horrors only.

Overall Marks : 3.5/10.
