It’s about a group of war veterans who must defend their local VFW post and an innocent teenager, from a psychotic drug dealer and his army of drugged up punks.

VFW Review

Have you ever walked into a movie completely blind? (No, that was not intended as a Stephen LangDon’t Breathe” pun) Because that’s exactly what I did here with this 1 hour and 32 minute film called “VFW.” Did I regret it? Let’s talk about it!.

VFW is about a group of old war buddies. Sounds fun right? A couple of old pals who meet up daily at their local VFW post and throw back a couple of brewski’s and talk about the good old days. Meanwhile, we go to the location across the street, where chaos and absurdity linger. We are introduced to the wacko drug dealer who goes by the name of Boz (Hammer), as well as a couple of his lackeys. Their lair is run down and filled to the brim with drugged out punks, who are addicted to this trendy new drug that turns them into mindless, jacked up zombies. Something happens to some of the drugs and this really pisses off Boz and his people. He learns that the war veterans across the street may have something to do with it, so he decides to take action.

I really did have a good time with this movie. It’s on the lower side of the film budget, but I’m a huge fan of Indie horror and they really have something nice going on here despite being an independent film. The cast is all around solid and is made of movie vets! Their chemistry on screen is great. The writing is well done and not super complex. With that being said, it’s a pretty straight forward movie that aims at entertaining the viewer. Overall, I was happy with this product, even if it’s far from perfect (lighting crew I’m looking at you). It really keeps you engaged and never really slows down when it gets started. Did I mention the violence in this is pretty top notch as well? Nothing too wild, but definitely enough to satisfy the gorehounds out there! I guarantee if you watch this during a movie night with some friends and a few drinks, you will have a fun, bloodsoaked time.

Worth Watching?

Definitely! It’s a weird, good old time. Whether it be during a movie night, or maybe you just came across it randomly, I’m 96.5 percent sure that you will have a fun experience with this film. Filled with body parts and geriatric humor, VFW is one I recommend from here on out.
