Happy Frightening 4th!

So, I was surfing around, trying to find a good topic to blog about for today, being a horrorday and all, and I found that someone else was on the same wavelength as me!

I swear the asker isn't me, but we are definitely on the same page here!

So here were the answers:
1. Independence Day
2. Uncle Sam
3. I Know What You Did Last Summer
4. Cape Fear
5. Jaws

Ok, now let's get down to business...

Cape Fear is great and I've already discussed it here.

Jaws, I mean...if you follow MB Blog at all you know how I feel about sharks, and I reference this movie a billion's one of those times.

I Know What You Did Last Summer annoys me because that title is super long and annoying to type with capitals. I....Know...What....You...we're still going?....Did....Last....ugh....Summer. I believe I went to see this in theaters because of Ryan Phillippe, and I will also divulge and say that I believe I own the soundtrack to this film. Slightly embarassing? You bet.

Independence Day isn't really a horror film, and the answerers of the question acknowledge that, but I guess Science Fiction counts, because there are aliens in it and they are trying to kill us, which is scary, right? Also, Jeff Goldblum is in it. Just sayin'.

Ok, now that that's out of the way, let's get down to business...

Uncle Sam?!

I've never heard of this movie, although I believe I used its movie poster last 4th of Ghouleye not knowing what it was for!

Here's the trailer:

This reminds me of one of the trailers they showed during Grindhouse.

This movie is so hard to find online...even Wikipedia is stumped! They do, however, give it a little blurb in the original Uncle Sam wiki:

Furthermore, Uncle Sam appeared as a horror villain in the eponymously titled 1997 film, Uncle Sam. In this film, a veteran who died during Desert Storm rises from the dead to exact justice upon those he perceives as "unAmerican" after some teenagers burn the American Flag on his grave. The poster is a full-on spoof of the classic Uncle Sam poster, with a zombified Sam and the tagline "I want you... dead."

X-Entertainment has a fantastic review of it complete with screen shots, so definitely it's worth the read, although seemingly not worth the watch.

It is available on Amazon for $'ve gotta be kidding me.

Seriously though, I need to see this movie, and if any of you have, please tell me about it!

While I search for Uncle Sam for less than a dollar, you enjoy your spOOoooooOoOoOoky BBQ's and have a Happy 4th of Ghoul-Eye!
