After making his mark with a series of offbeat gory horror movies, producer J.R. Bookwalter (“The Dead Next Door”) took a rare detour into the revenge subgenre with “Maximum Impact,” a shot-on-video action thriller which never quite has a chance to live up to its ambitious title. Shot in December, 1991 on a shoestring budget of less than $2,500, this misguided effort remains an elusive find for hardcore VHS collectors nearly 30 years after release.

While on business in the city, insurance salesman Jerry Handley rescues a teenage prostitute from a ruthless pimp and his thugs. In retaliation, the gang raids Jerry’s sleepy community, killing whoever stands in the way until an average man has no choice but to unleash his own special brand of vengeance!

Painstakingly restored from original Super-VHS-C camera masters with a dynamic new 5.1 surround remix, camcorder drama “Maximum Impact” barrels onto Blu-ray together with never-before-seen bonus materials from the Tempe vaults, three audio commentaries, and original 1992 home video presentation captured from the archival edit master.

No, we only ship inside the US

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.

We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.


All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.

Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.

Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.

If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.


We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
