Fun movie so I’m not gonna dock skulls for shudders idiotic assumption the villains were far right. We’ve had plenty of lefties riot over the last couple of years and show themselves to be just as violent as anyone else that walks this earth. So, I’d suggest the company keep their politics to themselves.

This was brilliant. Tight, simple, well-written and executed. I am rarely surprised but found it unpredictable throughout.

The twist at the end shows you these dudes knew what was up.

For an 84 minute runtime there’s something interminable and distinctly unsatisfying about this film. Maybe it’s the wooden, mostly unsympathetic characters. Maybe it’s their irritatingly stupid actions. Maybe it’s the fact that I simply cannot stand right wing fascists and I wanted them to suffer more. Still worth a viewing. 3/5

Not horror but a fun 80s crime/home defense movie. Interesting characters and nice short running length.
