Trivia

The ending is a reference to the ending of Lucio Fulci's City of the Living Dead (1980). The Lucio Fulci dedication before the end credits confirms this. See more »

Goofs

When the dramatic red-lit close-ups of the congressman's hands being strapped to the fireworks tower are shown, it's apparent that the arms are being stretched up and away from the waist, as in a crucifixion. When we see the congressman full length, however, his arms are tied down at hip level. See more »

This movie wasn't the worst movie ever
27 June 1999 | by Pat-88See all my reviews

Anyone who thinks this is the worst movie ever, didn't see a bad horror movie in their life time. Believe me, there much worse movies out there than Uncle Sam. No, I think that this film is horrible too. But there's way more bad movies than this out there

Troll 2 is the worst horror movie ever, not Uncle Sam. This film is Gone With The Wind compared with that crap. At least this one is funny than that trash.

If you people want the worst movie ever made, Go rent the movie "Troll 2".

*1/2 (Troll 2 get no stars)
