FROM JUNGLE HELL TO URBAN HATE
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.
