5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly ahead of its time... Jan. 3 2002
Format:DVD
Is it any wonder that the critics missed the mark on Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except (TSNKE)? Even To Live And Die In LA recieved a lukewarm reception from the so called 'critics'. It is clear by the general consenus of fans which truly apprecaite this and other fine films that TSNKE simply must not be missed!
This piece of artwork features a generous helping of everything. Action, violence, romance, drama, and of course ... Revenge! From the sleazy cult girls to the kennel owner, you will get to know each and every well developed character. The sets and locations, while clearly independent film quailty, are used wisely to enhance the viewers perception and plotline.
Add - the deleted scene, alternate opening, trailer, audio commentary, superb wide screen picture and cryoted clear soundtrack and you have a rare jem of a film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Humor in the vein of "The Evil Dead" Nov. 22 2000
Format:VHS Tape
"Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except" is yet another obscure movie remastered by the video gods at Anchor Bay. The plot follows a group of war heroes, fresh out of Vietnam, who end up battling a cult of Charles Manson types in a small town. This may sound like a serious plot (like a revenge movie), but it's really not. Actually, this movie is more of a slapstick comedy than anything, and like all comedies, it wears a little thin upon repeated viewings. "Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except" comes from the same core group (Sam Raimi, Josh Becker, Bruce Campbell) that worked on "The Evil Dead," so if you appreciated the humor in that movie, you'll most likely get a kick out of this one. I personally found it superior to that overrated shocker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Josh Becker is a Creative Genius Nov. 18 2001

Format:DVD
There must be something in that Michigan water. It produces talent like Campbell, Raimi, Spiegel, and of course Josh Becker... Do the Great Lakes hold some secret of great cinematic wonder? Perhaps.
This is one of the coolest horror films of the 80's. Becker works with almost no budget to recreate the late 1960's. He takes you from the jungles of Vietnam to rural Michigan, and it ain't too bad. So what if the Viet Cong village looks like it was erected on a soccer field! That's the beauty of it. The story is cool and Raimi is great as the psychotic 'Mansonesque' cult leader. You can feel Becker's determination as you watch this film. Check out his other films Running Time and Lunatics: A Love Story (featuring the amazing Ted Raimi).

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt--in a defibrillating sort of way Jan. 7 2001
Format:VHS Tape
If you're tired of Speilburg's blantant attempts to wring emotions from the tendons of your soul, then this movie is like a soothing balm to your weary, weather-beaten lips. While various other films strive to be genuine and well-made, this one does not even need to: every bit of action, every facial expression, every bit of dialogue speaks from the heart--or at least the spleen. Bruce Campbell is brilliant in this epic tale of heartbreak and intrigue. Not for the whole family, definitely not appropriate to show at Cousin Betty's wedding, this movie is one that at least the committed Sam Raimi-Bruce Campbell fans can enjoy. Hail to the king, baby.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Great, but entertaining 1st movie by Becker.... March 10 2001
Format:DVD
Ok, I own most of Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi's movies, so I had to give this movie a whirl (Josh Becker worked on Evil Dead). Overall, don't expect any academy award winning performances or plot. This movie is well below low-budget and I don't think Becker of Campbell (who provide a commentary) are trying to pass it off as anything it is not either.
As a movie to sit back and enjoy without taking seriously; you will enjoy it. The commentary shines, very humorous and entertaining all the way through. But, I am partial to Raimi/Campbell movies and others might not be.
Once again, get it for the commentary...well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars There It Is, G.I. Dec 20 2001
Format:DVD
Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned this semi-obscure gem on DVD and yet, here it is. I've watched the VHS version of T.S.N.K.E. (sink-ee) at least 200 times all the way through, but my first DVD viewing was like experiencing a whole new T.S.N.K.E. Scenes that once looked suspiciously lit by car headlights have been transformed into scenes that are clearly lit by car headlights. The soundtrack has been given the digital restoration it deserves and the commentary track is just weird. To realize that at least two other people still acknowledge this film is really spooky. Somebody pinch me.

Vietnam Vets Vs. Charles Manson-like gang ! Some of those elements that are now part of the famous and beloved EVIL DEAD the trilogy are easily detected here.Great FX for a very low budget movie,insane ideas and stunts,great plot- of course it's not perfect,but if they had had more dough,it would have been.Watch this ! it is unbelievable.You will be pleased to have this great item in your video collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really bad, but entertaining July 25 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Ahh, Sam Raimi and the gang in their $4,000 Vietnam epic. This is THE worst movie ever, but it's also entertaining, so it makes up for it. Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except has a lot of problems: The lighting, the script, the odd stock footage mixed with acting to make everything feel out of place...but, it's stupid in an A-Team sort of way, which is good. Not brillant, but worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you don't like it, you don't get it.
For all the people who reviewed this movie and said it was terrible, you clearly don't get it. It's like a 70's Grindhouse style movie and it looks low budget because IT WAS low... Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars I like Sam Raimi But...
This movie was just awful. It had the look and feel of being made by high school students. It was not funny, or interesting and really did not have anything worth mentioning to... Read more
