Surf’s up for BEACH BLANKET BLOODBATH Month at Mondo Mondays, featuring a bevy of beachy B-movies that will keep you screaming all summer long!
A veritable smorgasbord of over-the-top sleaze, action and gore awaits all those who dare venture to Warriors Island, burial ground of disgraced martial arts masters, in the crazed ‘80s grindhouse concoction known as Raw Force! When the Burbank Kung Fu Club hits the high seas to sightsee and travel to Warriors Island, bad movie trouble awaits. Exploitation movie legend Cameron Mitchell (Space Mutiny) lends woozy star power as the salty/drunken sea cruise captain who transports the motley passengers to their tropical fate – a passenger list comprised of mustached martial artists, single women on vacation, and a few goofy dudes without a clue (including a motor-mouthed male stripper). After a run-in with a Hitler clone and his goons (don’t ask), the surviving tourists are shipwrecked on the ominous island, where they meet a maniacally cackling monk whose cult followers get off on practicing black magic and resurrecting dead karate warriors to battle the unwanted visitors. What follows is an outrageous onslaught of zombies, cannibals, nudity, gore, orgies, voodoo, dumb comedy, martial arts showdowns, hungry piranha and general ludicrousness. Who will survive this forcefully raw vacation into terror? (Dir. by Edward D. Murphy, 1982, USA/Philippines, 86 mins., Rated R)
