Synopsis


Uncle Sam
After being killed by friendly fire during the Gulf War, soldier Sam Harper (David Shark Fralick) inexplicably returns from the dead to wreak revenge upon corrupt military men, draft dodgers, tax cheats, and flag burners. His memory is cherished only by his nephew, who doesn't realize that in life Sam was an angry, violent alcoholic who abused his family members and earned his heroic medals simply by being psychotic on the battlefield. Sam crawls out of his coffin after being brought back to his hometown, steals an Uncle Sam costume and proceeds to wreak havoc on insincere patriots during a Fourth of July celebration. ~ Fred Beldin, Rovi

    ...to dig this flick you'll need an appreciation for the talent behind the camera. Written by Larry Cohen (Q, God Told Me To and the It's Alive series) and directed by William Lustig (Maniac, Vigilante and the Maniac Cop series). If you're a fan of either of those two, you'll know exactly what kind of entertainment you're in store for. Not to be taken completely serious, if you're in the "right" mind frame, there is a lot of fun to be had with this patriotic fright flick.
