VFW Fright Fest review

VFW is an ’80s horror fan dream, the new film directed by Joe Begos and starring the great Stephen Lang(Avatar, Don’t Breathe) also features a who-who of stars from ’80s horror cinema. This is easily one of my favorite horror films of 2020 already and we’re not even through with the first quarter of the year.

VFW surprisingly has a heavy heart played by its actors who just dominate their screen time, some of the dialogue in the VFW before things get gory has somewhat of a Kevin Smith sentimental value to it, which is surprising to see and a breath of fresh air.

Stephen Lang delivers such an admirable performance here it’s one a lot of fans of grindhouse movies will appreciate. VFW is a perfect homage to all the great ‘70s and ‘80s grindhouse films we miss seeing today.


A typical night for veterans at a VFW turns into an all-out battle for survival when a desperate teen runs into the bar with a bag of stolen drugs. When a gang of violent punks come looking for her, the vets use every weapon at their disposal to protect the girl and themselves from an unrelenting attack.
