Dollar Bin Film - "Thou Shall Not Kill...Except "


An army unit on patrol in Vietnam is ambushed and most of the unit is killed. The survivors are given leave to return Stateside and see their families. They decide to visit one of their buddies who had been wounded in the ambush. When they arrive in his town, they run up against a killer cult led by a murderous psychopath.
What do you get when you mix Sam Raimi, the crew from the Evil Dead films, no money, and a lot of cheese? You get this movie. The film is badly written and poorly acted, but it's just so damn fun! With plenty of mindless violence and a memorable, but really really bad, performance by Sam Raimi as a Charles Manson style cult leader with bad hair, and even worse teeth, this film is the perfect 80's cheesefest for die hard Evil Dead fans to kick back and enjoy. Just leave your brains at the door, cause tryin to figure this shit out is gonna make em hurt.

Is this available on netflix or on dvd, I would love to check it out! I love this kind of low budget horror, they are always good for a laugh.
