The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except (1985)

AKA: Stryker's War

Starring: Tim Quill, John Manfredi, Robert Rickman, Sam Raimi, Ted Raimi
Director: Josh Becker

A group of Vietnam vets visit one of their friends in his small home town where they run into a cult of murderous hippies.

My Take:
If one can make it through the slow, first thirty minutes of a Vietnam veteran returning home and trying to pick up the pieces, then you'll be in for a decent ride. The final act is the vet and his old platoon buddies fighting a crazy ass cult led by Sam Raimi. 
A fun flick to watch.

Rating: In the middle
