SUPPORT WHAT MATTERS! EXTERMINATE WHAT DOESN'T!
God knows the '80s weren't perfect. It was the decade of rising budget deficits, illegal U.S. intervention in Central America, and Duran Duran. But it was also the Decade of the Ninja. While the black-garbed messengers of death have appeared in films for a long time, they were usually hiding behind ornamental potted palm trees or clinging to the ceiling...it took a sharp eye to spot them.
Thanks to martial art moviemaking mavericks like The Fung (pronounced 'Fang') Brothers, they shimmied their way into the video stores and late night cable TV stations of America. These multi-thousand dollar spectacles usually starred whatever Caucasian actor happened to be in Hong Kong at the time. They were relentless cut-and-paste jobs that combined scenes from unrelated films into a dense fabric of digressions, flashbacks, minor-character subplots that go on at baffling length and - of course - demonstrations of pole-spinning, star-hurling prowess.
Now, we bring you this extremely rare screening of a lost ninja masterpiece NEVER RELEASED IN THEATERS OR ON VIDEO! All as a fundraiser for the upcoming Austin-produced doc on VHS majesty! Bring ten friends and a thousand strangers and TEAR THE NIGHT TO SHREDS!!
