The newly restored 1997 tongue-in-cheek horror directed by Blue Underground's founder William Lustig and written by legend Larry Cohen will make its 4K debut shortly before Independence Day. The film stars Robert Forster, Timothy Bottoms, Bo Hopkins, P.J. Soles, and Isaac Hayes.
Master Sergeant Sam Harper (David Fralick) is tragically killed in a horrible accident in Kuwait after his helicopter is shot down by friendly fire. Sam's charred remains are shipped back to his hometown of Twin Rivers, just as the town is preparing for its annual Fourth of July celebration. While being stored at his sister's house, Sam's dead body becomes reanimated and goes on a patriotic killing spree over the course of the holiday weekend. Uncle Sam is an over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek satire about American's obsession with military dominance and the great lengths the nation will go in order to appeal to the country's youth.
This 4K edition features a recently restored presentation scanned in 4K 16-bit from the original 35mm negative in honor of the film's 25th anniversary. It will also include Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
