VFW
2019, 92 min, Dir: Joe Begos

Joe Begos’ second film of 2019 is being described by the filmmaker as THE WILD BUNCH meets NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. In this star-studded bloodbath, Vietnam vets Steven Lang, Fred Williamson, William Sadler and Martin Kove have to defend their VFW post from a band of post-apocalyptic, drug-addicted mutants tracking a woman named Lizard, who stole their stash of “Hype” and is holed up in the bar with the aforementioned vets. The film exploits the confines of the bar to ratchet up the tension and fill the screen with buckets of blood - it's an absolute riot seeing our grizzled crew taking out the gang by ever-more violent means as the film zips along with Begos’ trademark insanity and punk-rock ethos.
