Sledgehammer [Sledge Hammer] (Original screenplay for the 1983 film)
Marina Del Rey, CA: Self published, 1983. Draft script for the 1983 film. SIGNED by the director on the title page. A direct-to-video, shot-on-video slasher film released a year prior to the Video Recordings Act 1984, when the Video Nasty movement was dissolving. In the vein of John Carpenter's "Halloween" (1978), the film follows a young boy who murders his family, not with a knife like Michael Myers, but with a sledgehammer. Flash forward ten years, when a group of friends inherits the scene-of-the-crime house, a seance calls forth the ghost of the homicidal boy, who now appears as a hulking man with a transparent mask...and of course, a sledgehammer. Director Prior cast his brother, Ted Prior, an ex-Chippendale and centerfold model for "Playgirl" magazine (1984), as the lead in the film. Black illustrated wrappers. Title page present, dated 1983, noted as Synopsis, with a second title page, noted as An Original Screenplay, with a credit for screenwriter Prior. 90 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 85. Photographically reproduced. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound internally with a silver prong brand. Lentz, p. 1527. Thrower, p. 517. Weldon (1996), p. 514.
