-->'''Reporter''': We interrupt this program to bring you news bulletins from WashingtonDC. All the wires have sent us the account. The President of the United States has been killed ''[strange pause]'' in the White House, along with the Secretary of State and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. [[ThisJustIn Other bulletins]], coming from around the country, say that the governors of several states have been killed; the Governor of California, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana... and of New York. [[ThisJustIn There are other bulletins that tell us]]... that people are being herded into the street of the large cities and machine-gunned down like cattle! Ladies and gentlemen... this... is the communist takeover of the United States! This is the end of democracy as you and I know it!

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: What has been described as a "Communist accent". A deep blend of German, Russian and Cuban, with it shifting not only from scene to scene, but within the same lines.

* IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten: After lying about not being a Christian, our idiot friend Tommy is ordered to prove himself by shooting his own mother.



* MissingStepsPlan: The Reverend is a mite fuzzy on exactly how good Christians abstaining from premartial sex, dancing, and miniskirts is supposed to prevent the Red Menace from invading the U.S. unopposed. Mocked by the inimitable Creator/{{Seanbaby}} in his review from ''The Wave'':

* SchizoTech: Throughout the film, communist soldiers ride around on horses. Presumably, this is to drive home the "footmen and horses" metaphor, but there doesn't seem to be any internal logic behind it.

The Reds evidently have a very tight Christian-murdering budget, since most of their motor vehicle needs seem to be handled by a beat-up Ford truck.

During the 1970s and 1980s, this film was circulated amongst the more fundamentalist churches in the DeepSouth. Today, it's something of a CultClassic for [[SoBadItsGood different reasons]].

* InfantImmortality: Inverted HARD! In fact the worst scenes involve children....from the boy getting his eardrums punctured (then barfing up a storm), the kids forced to drop their dad on a pitchfork & the kid who gets his head lopped off. Then, of course, the kids seen amongst the gunned-down dead.

* ThinkOfTheChildren: Much of the hand-wringing comes from communism's supposed effects on the next generation, such as teaching them to reject Christ and [[SexIsEvil informing them at a young age about the body's erogenous zones]].

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: This is especially apparent with the main Commissar. He's a very DeepSouth kind of guy trying to talk like an invading Soviet & failing miserably, with an accent that seems to waiver between "Count Dracula" & "Foghorn Leghorn". The other "Communists" arent that much better, either.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Most of the carnage is this, along with the bargain-basement acting. Amongst other cinematic attrocities, you have:
** Some of the gunned-down people being played by mannequins.
** Blood looks like cherry dessert-topping.
** The boy's beheading involve a totally fakey knife from the toy section at K-Mart & is cheesily portrayed.
** The "Soviet" flags & insignias look like they were made from scratch by five-year-olds.
** The news anchor's newsroom is an ugly wood-paneled wall with a map on it.
** The flashback scenes where Rev. Pirkle muses fondly about the [=McGuffey=] Readers are supposedly set in the turn of the 20th Century but everybody still dress like it's TheSeventies.
This list shows the last 10 events of 40. Show all.
