Nail Gun Massacre  (1985)
The Nail Gun Massacre
Texas Nail Gun Massacre
Nomination Year: 1996
SYNOPSIS: A woman is brutally raped by a gang of rowdy construction workers. A short while later, a mysterious slender figure wearing a black jumpsuit begins running around and nail-gunning construction workers to death (as well as other people who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time). After a thrillingly un-suspenseful batch of scenes, the Nail Gun Killer is cornered at a construction site, suddenly becomes much chunkier inside that rather-too-tight black jumpsuit, and is finally unmasked. I won't ruin the suspense for you because there is none. The Nail Gun Killer is the rape victim's brother. That's right. The high point (okay, a "less low than usual point") includes the use of a woman as the killer in every scene ... except the scene where the killer is unmasked. You do the math.

A Lasting Leg-a-See
We see the villain jump from the crane to land off-screen. We hear the appropriate "splat" sound effects. Yet, a split-second afterward, we see an entire leg pop up in the corner of the screen.
