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
