    Kung fu cannibal zombies. Got your attention? Grab a ticket to Edward D. Murphy's RAW FORCE (1982), coming to Blu-Ray from Vinegar Syndrome! The Burbank Karate Club planned on a little tropical pleasure-cruising in the Philippines. What they didn't plan on is a confrontation with Chip, a Nazi war criminal slave trafficking local girls to a nearby port. Why, you ask? So they can be devoured by flesh-eating monks, who consume human meat to charge their powers and resurrect Warrior Island's most legendary martial artists. Of course. The B-Bank K Club ain't taking this one sitting down. One of the more lunatic flicks you're likely to encounter, RAW FORCE is everything that's right with movies. It's fast-paced and action-packed, filled with undead samurais, naked girls, and a bartender who headbutts a block of ice in half when he can't find the pick. Vinegar Syndrome's release comes restored from the 35mm camera negative, and contains interviews with director Murphy, cinematographer Frank Johnson, and co-editor Jim Wynorski. A definite essential. "Their carefree vacation cruise turns into Hell on the high seas!"

    Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Preorder (10/7/14) : now live. Direct links at my sites.

    Awesome Theatrical Trailer!

    This looks just up my alley and VS has done a terrific job with their releases so far.
