User Reviews

One of the most painful movies ever made. See it!
9 July 1999 | by sockmonk-2See all my reviews

There are worse movies than Uncle Sam, just not many. I saw this movie after noticing its cover was a lot like Jack Frost's (not the Family one, which might have been worse). Although I would rather be hit in the eye with a hammer than see this movie again I in no way regret it. Not since Orgy of the Dead, a movie which managed to make me fall on the floor and not notice, have I been amazed at the total lack of talent needed to create the horror. This, along with movies like Orgy of the Dead, Jack Frost, and the Wizard of Gore (the worst movie ever made), are movies that can be enjoyed by the luckiest of souls. Everyone who can enjoy bad bad bad movies should see it.
