VFW is easily one of my favorites from this year’s Fantastic Fest. It was a great pairing with pizza and a couple of beers and an experience I can’t wait to revisit.
This one comes from director Joe Begos (Bliss, Almost Human) and in my opinion is the best thing he has done so far.
The film brings together a bunch of eclectic iconic faces in a cast that includes Stephen Lang, William Sadler, Martin Kove, David Patrick Kelly, Fred Williamson and George Wendt and pits them against some insane, drug fueled punks.
It’s a really great film that perfectly harnesses 70’s and 80’s exploitation to fantastic effect. It also manages to pull off a lot of gnarly practical kills and keeps em coming at an assembly line pace.
THE WILD BUNCH meets NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the film follows Fred and his military buddies as they must defend their local V.F.W. (Veterans of Foreign Wars) post – and an innocent teen – against a deranged drug dealer and his relentless army of punk mutants. These Vietnam vets have been to hell and back, but this will be the longest night of their lives.
VFW is a flat out good time. Get your eyeballs on the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments section.
