The Star Spangled Shocker From The Creators Of MANIAC COP
It’s Fourth Of July Weekend, and the recently discovered corpse of Sgt. Sam Harper – killed by ‘friendly fire’ during the first Gulf War – is returned to his all-American hometown. But when Sam rises from the dead to punish the unpatriotic, only his young nephew and a bitter Korean War veteran (Soul icon Isaac Hayes of SHAFT and SOUTH PARK fame) can stop his red-blooded rampage. Draft dodgers, tax cheats, crooked politicians and flag-burners beware: UNCLE SAM wants you… DEAD!
Timothy Bottoms (THE LAST PICTURE SHOW), Bo Hopkins (THE WILD BUNCH), William Smith (FAST COMPANY), P.J. Soles (HALLOWEEN, CARRIE) and Oscar nominee Robert Forster (JACKIE BROWN) co-star in this zombie horror hit directed by William Lustig (MANIAC, RELENTLESS) and written by Larry Cohen (IT’S ALIVE, PHONE BOOTH). UNCLE SAM has been remastered from original negative materials and loaded with Extras that include an all-new, no-holds-barred audio commentary with Cohen and Lustig!
