THOU SHALT NOT KILL… EXCEPT

STARRING SAM RAIMI AS A MANSON-LIKE HIPPIE CULT LEADER!

WHEN VIOLENCE DEMANDS REVENGE…

THE EXPLOITATION ACTION CLASSIC FROM THE PEOPLE WHO BROUGHT YOU THE EVIL DEAD AND EVIL DEAD 2!

Vietnam, 1969. War is Hell.  For Marine Sergeant
Jack Stryker (Brian Schulz), how­ev­er, Hell is just the begin­ning.  Trapped out­side a Viet Cong vil­lage, Stryker takes two bul­lets to the leg.
Sent home from the war, he dis­cov­ers his ex-girl­friend (Cheryl Hausen) has been kid­napped by a reli­gious cult with a vicious Manson-like lead­er (played by THE EVIL DEAD and SPIDER-MAN tril­o­gy direc­tor, Sam Raimi). Stryker teams up with his marine bud­dies to form an assas­si­na­tion squad to anni­hi­late the gang of crazed killers.
