Critics reviews

Satirical premise in place, Perez created what many videovores deem the true beginning of contemporary found footage. However, only a hundred tapes were pressed, ironically leaving few to find America’s Deadliest Home Video at all… What begins as a simple exploitation exercise for Perez becomes an often disturbing black comedy that pointedly captures its era unlike subsequent entries in the genre.
