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.

Lessons of Darkness

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

Awesomely Cheesy

Super Reviewer
