Nine Deaths of the Ninja WOOf! 1985 (R)

Faceless ninja warrior Kosugi leads a team of commandos on a mission to rescue a group of political prisoners held captive in the Philippine jungles. Features Ozone-depleted plot, incongruous performances, and inane dialogue, not to mention two main villains—a neurotic Nazi in a wheelchair and a black lesbian amazon—who chew jungle and bring bad art to a new level of appreciation. Amazing in its total badness. Produced by Cannon. 93m/C VHS, DVD . Sho Kosugi, Brent Huff, Emelia Lesniak, Regina Richardson, Kane (Takeshi) Kosugi, Vijay Amritraj, Blackie Dammett, Sonny Erang, Bruce Fanger; D: Emmett Alston; W: Emmett Alston; M: Cecile Calayco.
