Red Scare of the most absurd kind
4 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

A bunch of people sitting in a bar find themselves suddenly witnessing the Red invasion of America. As the commies take over life for everyone becomes a living hell and every cold war stereotype is trotted out for us to boo and hiss, before the final and revelation (which you'll guess way in advance- if its not on the video box)

This is a movie to sit and watch and shake your head at. Popcorn and the beverage of your choice will be spilled as you fall into fits of laughter as people are raped, tortured and forced to do the most absurd things.

How did anyone keep a straight face when they made this?

Or were we that gullible?

This movie is a scream. On an enjoyment level its a 7 out of 10, on a real level it owes us points, but since enjoyment is all I give it a 7. When planning your next so bad its good night be sure to include this little gem.
