Vietnam Made-For-TV Horror Movies
27 March 2002 | by (Albany, NY) – See all my reviews

WELCOME HOME, JOHNNY BRISTOL was one of a wave of creepy movies (e.g., YOU'LL LIKE MY MOTHER, DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, DYING ROOM ONLY) that were made for U.S. television during the Vietnam war. (Remember the ABC Movie of the Week?) As a genre, the horror in these movies, though at times allegorical, nevertheless was a direct reflection of the evil being perpetrated in Asia by our government. These movies hold up exceedingly well today, but you are not likely to see them, because it seems we are blinded by a forest of waving American flags.
