Reason to Watch

As suggested by Mitchy!

The film is terribly low-budget but there is a great deal of ingenuity with the special effects and action sequences. Does that mean they're good? Nope!

Synopsis

A female aerobic instructor is possessed by the soul of a fallen ninja when coming to his aid. The spirit seeks revenge on those who killed him and uses the instructor's body to carry out his mission. The only way the spirit will leave her body is with the help of another ninja.

Reason to Watch

"Wait... what about Ninja 1 and 2?" Well, they kinda don't exist. Not that it matters really!


There are few movies that have the massive amount of non stop ninja action as Ninja III: the Domination. This is a story of love**, redemption and revenge, however, this is mainly a story about flipping out and killing people for no reason at all. If you've been searching for a movie where a ninja goes absolutely nuts and takes all kinds of people to their graves just because he's a ninja and he can do it, this is the movie for you.

Don Dohler MUST have grew up during the fifties/early sixties and been a tremendously big fan of the monster-movies of that period! How else could you justify this schlock cheesy Sci-Fi horror movie he unleashed upon the world in the 80's

Synopsis

A cyborg is programmed to kill a scientist who holds the fate of mankind in his hands. He fails and hides in a diner in a desert run by a woman who likes him. The people who sent him are after him and so is the local arm wrestling champ.

Reason to Watch

Hands of Steel is not a particularly good movie, but it certainly is a ton of silly fun. Italian B-Movies have a weird flavour all their own, and this one is no exception. European schlock-meisters obviously love American movies and want to make their films look and feel as "American" as possible, but something almost always feels like it got lost in the translation - even when they use American actors and film in U.S. locations, like they did here.

Synopsis

When Bo was a child, a mysterious stranger sadistically murdered his parents. Only Bo and his sister, Ingrid survived the bloodshed. Now, twenty years later... Bo and his sister are grown up. They are now employees at a diamond mineshaft located in the desert. As mischievous as they are, they stumble upon the discovery of a legendary diamond, the "White Fire." However, this rapture for the diamond has provoked the angst of some short-tempered, not-so-nice villains. The quest to capture the most sought-out diamond in the world is afoot...

Reason to Watch

A thick slice of 80s cheese, White Fire boasts chopsocky sound effects, pastel scarves, Robert Ginty's mustache, and enough brother/sister incest to make you nauseous.

An incomprehensible low-budget French/Turkish/British mess featuring two American B-movie actors, which makes it kind of odd that most characters speak with an Italian accent.
