Combat Shock (AKA American Nightmares): 2 Disc Never-Before-Seen Director's Cut

Nearly 25 years after it original release, Combat Shock returns from the cult underground to reclaim its title as perhaps the most shocking independent film of the '80s.

Writer, director, producer Buddy Giovinazzo made his indelible debut with this nihilistic saga of Vietnam vet's desperate pursuit to save his family from the horrors of poverty and urban squalor.

Culminating in one of the most brutal climaxes ever committed to celluloid, this unforgiving masterwork remains as controversial and relevant as it was at the height of Reagan's America.
