Blue Underground Releasing William Lustig's 'Uncle Sam' on 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray

Director William Lustig‘s 1996 horror film Uncle Sam is getting the 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray treatment from our friends over at Blue Underground. This home video special edition release will hit shelves in the United States on June 21st, 2022. We have included a look at the cover artwork below, along with a link to pre-order a copy RIGHT HERE!


Synopsis: “It’s Fourth Of July Weekend, and the recently discovered corpse of Sgt. Sam Harper – killed by ‘friendly fire’ during the first Gulf War – is returned to his all-American hometown. But when Sam rises from the dead to punish the unpatriotic, only his young nephew and a bitter Korean War veteran (Academy Award winner + Grammy Award winner Isaac Hayes of SHAFT and SOUTH PARK fame) can stop his red-blooded rampage. Draft dodgers, tax cheats, crooked politicians and flag-burners beware: Uncle Sam wants you… DEAD!

Timothy Bottoms (THE LAST PICTURE SHOW), Bo Hopkins (THE WILD BUNCH), William Smith (FAST COMPANY), P.J. Soles (HALLOWEEN, CARRIE) and Academy Award nominee Robert Forster (JACKIE BROWN) co-star in this zombie horror hit directed by William Lustig (MANIAC, RELENTLESS) and written by Larry Cohen (GOD TOLD ME TO, THE STUFF).
