      Audience Member "No. Hop off." A group of friends, all veterans of the Second Indochina War, band together using their military training to fight a violent biker gang/cult which has invaded their town in backwoods Ohio. Good dialogue, and with so much talking it is a little slow for the first half, but midway the film changes tone and becomes over-the-top violent. In this action/horror, I see a lot of similarities with "Mandy", which I also highly recommend. Sam Rami ("Darkman", "Drag Me to Hell") and Bruce Campbell ("Waxwork II", "Bubba Ho-tep", "Maniac Cop") appear in this, so you can be sure there is an added bit of quirky comedy. Also to note was the wardrobe of the cult - I would wear almost everything they donned! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Good gravy! What a shlocky, cheap z-grade flick. I mean, Sam Raimi is pretty funny as the manic cult leader, but unless you're looking for a good drinking game, there's not much beef to this attempt at making commandos vs The Manson Family. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/07/21 Full Review Audience Member Sam Raimi is great as the crazed cult leader...other than that it's your typical grindhouse revenge flick. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Sam Raimi is so great in this. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member a corn fuelled schlocky romp through the friends of Raimi territory. Jack Stryker gets out of vietnam after taking 2 in the leg and hooks up with his old flame but there is a Manson type clan in town killing folks and they take his woman hostage. Enter some old war buddies come to visit and they go on the hunt for the bad guys. slow start, surprisingly good acting and some good kills. Sam Raimi puts in a OTT performance as the Manson type leader. good entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A damn near no budget time killer with Raimi in front of the camera. For movie trash lovers only.
