That’s right, it’s the 1996 black comedy horror-thriller Uncle Sam, 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 (Isaac Hayes) 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 (TV’s Rich Man, Poor Man), P.J. Soles (Halloween) and Robert Forster (Jackie Brown) co-star in this zombie horror hit directed by William Lustig and written by Larry Cohen (Maniac).
