Worst Cover Copy
Jim Brown is Slaughter!
The back is very much like Moontrap. It's a blatant biography -- a bunch of press clippings held together by a thin glue of plot description. Key quotes: "El Mucho Macho" (Interview), "Slick values and direction" (Variety), "Appropriately Titled" (New York Daily News).

"Cutting Butter With A Chainsaw"
Pre-Emptive Strike
We thought asking for a restaurant was scant cause for an ass-whupping? This guy just says "hi." POW! Out the window, and into the swimming pool.

Smithee Award Winner! Acting Appropriately Stupid
When Not To Use the N-Word
Slaughter runs another guy off the road.
Slaughter: "Who killed my family?"
Other Guy: "Me. Now get me out of this car wreck, you stupid nigger!"
Slaughter decides to set the leaking gas on fire, instead.
