EDINBURGH ZOMBIE CLUB PRESENTS
VIETNAM VETERAN NIGHT
FEATURING…

THE NINTH CONFIGURATION (1980, dir. William Peter Blatty)

A new commanding officer arrives at a remote castle serving as an insane asylum for crazy and AWOL U.S. Army soldiers where he attempts to rehabilitate them by allowing them to live out their crazy fantasies while combating his own long-suppressed insanity.
Colonel Kane (Stacy Keach), a United States Marine Corps psychiatrist suffering from nightmares, arrives at a castle in the American Pacific Northwest where mentally ill soldiers from the Vietnam war are being treated. The castle’s staff has been unable to control the patients, many of whom are suspected of faking their illness to get out of combat. The permissive Kane opens himself up to listen to anything the soldiers have to say to him in an effort to heal them, while at the same time suffering from his own demons.
The first half of the film has the predominant tone and style of a comic farce. In the second half, the film becomes darker as it delves deeper into its central issues of human suffering, sacrifice and faith.

(I can’t find a trailer for this one)

ROLLING THUNDER (1977, dir. John Flynn)

Major Charles Rane, a former POW now free, returns home from Vietnam to find he is greeted as a hometown hero in his Texan principality. He is awarded a fly car, some serious coin, and a warm welcome home. The shit quickly hits the fan though: his wife has been fucking around on him while he was overseas with one of his dudes, his son hardly knows who the hell he is, and he is plagued by the nefarious and various misgivings that occured while in Nam.┬áNot content to see a brother doing fly, not just getting by, some fellow Texan haters decide to invade Rane’s home in search of his spoils of war. When they don’t find it, they torture the shit out of him. When wifey and son return home, then the tension heats up even more. While the haters find what they want, they cold-bloodedly murder Rane’s wife and son anyway, AFTER they’ve chopped his hand off by way of garbage disposal.So what’s a dude to do? Well, make a prosthetic hook hand, get some serious firepower, team up with former war buddy Tommy Lee Jones, shack up with a Nam groupie, and UNLEASH sweet motherfucking revenge. And that’s exactly what happens. What would you expect from the dude who wrote Taxi Driver?
Simply put, if you are a fan of revenge flicks and haven’t seen this, you are fucking up big-time.
