Say hello to 2018, Mondo-style, as we celebrate the NINJA NEW YEAR by featuring a month’s-worth of hilariously messy martial arts flicks that will really give you a kick!
It’s the age old story: sexy aerobics instructor becomes possessed by the spirit of an evil ninja who uses her body to seek revenge on the cops who killed him, her lunk-head boyfriend just doesn’t understand and a friendly one-eyed ninja is called in to perform an exorcism. Hijinks ensue. See it and be forever changed.
“An essential pillar of the insane “WTF” genre of movies … unsuspecting viewer-virgins can expect to have their minds blown out of the back of their skulls.” – CHUD.com
In this alleged third and final installment of the kooky ‘80s Ninja Trilogy that also includes Enter the Ninja and Revenge of the Ninja (naturally, it has absolutely nothing to do with either), voluptuous telephone repair woman / aerobics coach Christie Ryder (Lucinda Dickey, who, as one of the stars of Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, knew a thing or two about appearing in hilariously trashy sequels), is possessed by a nasty ninja who has just been killed in a police shootout. At first, changes in her behavior are limited to having strange interactions with an arcade game, doing sexy things with V8 juice and being attracted to an unusually hairy police officer. But soon enough, Christie graduates to glowing eyeballs, a rumbling voice and the ability to knock obnoxious frat dudes through brick walls. Coupled with the levitating ninja sword that floats through her apartment and her unquenchable desire to dress up in a ninja hoodie and murder off-duty police officers, Christie quickly realizes that she has a huge load of ninja trouble, as it seems the evil ninja master inhabiting her bodacious body is using her to exact revenge on the cops who killed him, and the only way for the spirit to evacuate Christie’s body is through deadly combat with a heroic, one-eyed ninja skilled in exorcising possessed aerobics instructors! Ludicrous to the extreme, filled with goofy gore and even goofier ‘80s attitude, Ninja III: The Domination (filmed in lovely Phoenix, Arizona!!!!!) is a veritable treasure trove of bad movie amazing-ness. (Dir. by Sam Firstsenberg, 1984, USA, 92 mins., Rated R)
