Jack Stryker took two bullets in the leg in Vietnam and was carried back by one of his men. When he returns he tries to live a peaceful life in his cabin and resume dating his girlfriend, Sally. Meanwhile, a vicious cult let by Sam Raimi, who believes he is Jesus Christ, has been slaughtering people and doing blood sacrifices. When Stryker finds Sally gone, and her grandfather, Otis, used as a human dartboard, Stryker brings together his army buddies, gives them a stash of guns from under his bed, destroy an outhouse, and create a war zone not unlike Vietnam to destroy the evil cult.

Prior to filming, a 48-minute 8mm short version of the film was made to show to potential investors. It starred Bruce Campbell as Stryker. Sam Raimi was also in the short, as the cult leader, the role he reprised in the actual film. See more »
After killing the Chain Man, Stryker cycles his Winchester rifle twice. The first cycle should have ejected the last shell fired, but no shell was visible. See more »
Sgt. Jack Stryker survives being in Vietnam, but when he returns to try to rekindle friendships and maybe lost love. A Manson-type cult led by Evil Dead/Spider-man director Sam Raimi comes looking for trouble so it's up to Stryker and his soldier buddies to kick some dirty hippie ass. It resembles a Troma movie. And If this WERE a Troma picture, I guarantee you that a lot of the reviews for it wouldn't be so bad. This is the kind of movie that you have to watch with your drinking buddies and laugh at how bad it is. How can you not like such an over-the-top Sam Raimi, or a Mr. T look-a-like?? My Grade: B DVD Extras: Commentary by Josh Becker and Bruce Campbell (which is a hoot too); a deleted scene; and theatrical trailer Eye Candy: Terry-Lynn Brumfield gets topless, the only reason she was hired for the part
