Critic Reviews for Uncle Sam

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

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

May 16, 2006 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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

April 20, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

August 2, 2010 | Rating: 3/5

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

July 5, 2009 | Rating: 1/10 | Full Review…

Gruesome gore with a patriotic slant.

April 3, 2005 | Rating: 2/5

...always entertaining...

Audience Reviews for Uncle Sam


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.
