Enter the Ninja (1981) is a really terrible movie, and it’s Wikipedia page is in need of an update, but some of the sets do have pleasing mid-century modern pieces. Additionally, I inadvertently figured out where this death scene came from. And honestly, it loses something as a meme-like clip on Youtube. This is by no means a recommendation to watch this film (let alone purchase it on Blu-ray), but experiencing the scene in the context of the movie itself, caused me to rewind it repeatedly between a state of utter confusion, half-laughs, and a lot of um-ing.
While Kung Fury is a ton of fun, just as Alamo Drafhouse’s rediscovery of Miami Connection was a good laugh, Ninja Bachelor Party operates on a completely different level. Maybe I’m being a little nostalgic in my love for this, but the addition of Bill Hicks seals the deal. This is sublime.
Dick, thanks for shooting me this link.
