Deathdream (1972)

Odd, interesting social-issue horror movie about a young man who comes back from Vietnam much changed; may be the first film to tackle the effects of Vietnam-era post-traumatic stress disorder, even if it is using a flesh-eating zombie as its metaphor. (I'm also not entirely sure that the metaphor was intentional, but you take what you can get.) Hurt by its low budget and generally amateur-level performances, but still fairly creepy.

Grade: B
