Directed by William Lustig
The corpse of a patriotic veteran comes back to life on July 4th, dons an Uncle Sam costume and goes on a killing spree in his hometown. Sam’s main target? Anyone who offends his ultra-patriotic views, including corrupt congressmen, anti-war people and more! But don’t think director William Lustig (MANIAC) and screenwriter Larry Cohen (GOD TOLD ME TO) are celebrating fascistic patriotism with their subversive and silly slasher. UNCLE SAM ultimately skewers the kind of rah-rah attitudes that have now come into full bloom 20 years after Lustig’s film was released.
The corpse of a patriotic veteran reanimates and goes on an Independence Day killing spree.
Cast: William Smith, David 'Shark' Fralick, Christopher Ogden, Issac Hayes
Surprisingly good. A solid supernatural slasher movie.
Enjoyable holiday slasher from the folks what brung you "Maniac Cop."
Enjoyable, tongue-in-cheek slasher film. So glad this was added!
If you love cheesy slashers like I do, you'll love this. Issac Hayes is great and the satire aspect of the film is well done (for a no budget 90's direct to video slasher). Feels like it could've came out 10 years earlier
it was Awesome while he was getting revenge on the disrespectful kid's that were burning the Flag at his Gravesite and others but THEN the writers could have written a better ending. 🤔
