Critic Reviews for Uncle Sam

All Critics (9)

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.

Full Review… | August 2, 2010

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

Antagony & Ecstasy

Reinvigorates stale horror clichés via both tongue-in-cheek social commentary and an unironic, unbridled love for blood-and-guts mayhem.

Lessons of Darkness

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

Slant Magazine

Gruesome gore with a patriotic slant.

Audience Reviews for Uncle Sam

Uncle Sam has a lot of potential that it doesn't quite realize. For starters, it takes way too long for Uncle Sam to return from the grave. For a much better anti-war Zombie film see Bob Clark's Deathdream (aka Dead of Night) from the 1970s. However, things do take an entertaining turn once Uncle Sam starts knocking off unpatriotic locals.

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

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.
