Uncle Sam may never be widely considered as a classic horror flick, but it's leaps and bounds better than the usual crap that's shoved down our throats.

August 2, 2010 Full Review Source: Dread Central

The worst of everything in the slasher subgenre consolidated into 89 endless minutes.

Lustig's surprisingly evocative widescreen compositions are peppered with an absurd parade of Americana.

Awesomely Cheesy

A very very weird horror movie about an Uncle Sam doll who goes on a killing spree. It didn't really creep me out as much as it made me laugh about the awkwardness of the scenes.

Spare me with this bad film, lots of ridiculous plot and random killing. One of the worst serial killers on the planet
