Default Combat Shock-(1986)

My buddy brought this over the other day and as soon as i saw the Troma print on the DVD i wasn't expecting anything at all, but i found out that Troma just has the rights to the DVD and is not a Troma film at all.

It's about a vietnam vet named Frank who returns home with Agent Orange, marries, has a deformed baby, and is dead broke. He tries to find a job but no luck, his friends are now all junkies, Pimps and pushers are after him, and he is finally driven to the point of insanity at the end, which is fucking BRUTAL!!!

This movie was made dirt cheap, there's some vietnam flashbacks shot in Upstate New York where if you look hard enough you can see some buildings in the background, and the acting at times is horrible, but the movie has some nice location shooting of New York before it was cleaned up, and overall the tone is just bleak as fuck.

The movie surprised me, i enjoyed it. i know some of you filmsnobs around here may not appreciate it, but check it out anyways.

I quite liked Combat Shock, very moody and dark movie.

Very grindhouse-y, kind of reminds me of Driller Killer, with the cheap production values and gritty realism. Movies that have no flair or visual style, just bare bones cinematography and editing. But that kind of fits with this particular movie.

I've got to see this! Looks like my cup of tea. I'm a sucker for grind house grit and trashy exploitation it's the fact that it has something totally unapologetic about it that I love.

I have owned this one for quite a while now but for whatever reason have been putting off watching it. Seems to be one of those films I need to be in the mood for and watch on my own. The negative commentary that is my Dad may spoil it for me.
