Trivia

The interiors of the VFW post were shot on location at a real VFW hall in Grand Prairie, Texas (specifically Post #2494). Several of the hall's real veterans appear as extras in the bar during the opening scenes. See more »

Goofs

The large flag inside the VFW post was displayed incorrectly. When hung against a wall, whether horizontally or vertically, the union (the blue part) should always be in the upper left corner as viewed. See more »

User Reviews

 
Brilliant 80s Throwback.
14 February 2020 | by ntj-filmSee all my reviews

Joe Begos is quickly becoming my absolut favorite indie director. Coming off his fantastic down n' dirty vampire flick Bliss, he is now back with his take on the classic siege film, doused in his trademarks of excessive gore, synth/metal score and neon lights.

The overall story is the very definition of simplicity and works all the better for it. It truly feels like a movie from a bygone Era populated with rugged old-times battling leatherclad junk peddlers to the blood spattered end.

If you love movies like Carpenter' Assault on Precinct 13/Escape from New York, I'm confident you'll find something here to your liking.

Hope you enjoy it.
