Default Combat Shock - - Official Announcement

Combat Shock (Arrow Video)


‘Nam, a green jungle hell. A terrifying place of death, violence and bloody war where seeing your buddies die in front of you is a daily event and getting your seed corrupted by Agent Orange is an occupational hazard. Poor Ricky came home with a messed up head and scrambled DNA, now he has a mutated baby, a nagging wife and a grim collection of junkie friends to deal with. In the dilapidated tenements of Staten Island, life is harsh and sanity is transitory at best.

Combat Shock is Troma’s meanest, grittiest movie. A headfirst trip into the seedy urban trough where hookers, desperate junkies and slowly unravelling Vietnam vets crawl over each other just to survive as the movie jacks up the grime flecked horror on its journey to one of no budget cinema’s most shocking conclusions.

You’ve witnessed the Surf Nazis on the rampage, you’ve laughed at the kids of the Class of Nuke ‘Em High... Now take a trip into Troma’s dark heart in COMBAT SHOCK.

Nice to see this get a UK release, it's a cracking wee movie. I've already got the US edition so won't be picking it up but I'd certainly recommend it to anyone that hasn't seen it.

That's more like it, don't see point in releasing any other Troma films myself though......

Grim rather than nasty, think Don't Go In The House in place of Taxi Driver in tone imo. Can't wait!!!

Must buy. What's the BBFC's stance on this?

This one is bloody depressing. Maybe I'll watch this then watch Apocalypse Now to cheer myself up. Grim, grim film.
