Canadian indie filmmakers are responsible for this tribute to Herschell Gordon Lewis, who is known as "Godfather of Gore". In the very beginning of 60's Lewis introduced to American "drive in" audience low budget horror films with extreme focus on bloody gore and graphic violence.
Smash Cut features same characteristics, and as homage they even got Gordon Lewis himself in a small role. In leading role is another iconic person - David Hess, cult actor known for his portrayal of maniac killers, and the film also features porn star Sasha Grey, whom I already mentioned before.
Smash Cut is about murderous exploits of Able Whitman, a horror-film director whose films are panned by critics and audiences alike - until he starts killing people and using their body parts as props in his new movie in order to make it look real.
