Throwback Thrillers


Raw Force

Ninjas and cannibal monks and zombies, OH MY! Martial arts students from the Burbank Kung Fu Club head out on a leisurely cruise, but when their ship drifts too close to a mysterious island, their vacation becomes a lot less relaxing. They’ve landed far from home on Warrior Island, a burial ground for shamed martial artists. And they are not alone. White supremacist sex traffickers have made camp on this lowly island chock full of secrets—and precious jade—just waiting to be unearthed.

The cult film preservation masterminds at Vinegar Syndrome delight us with a 35mm scan of this gritty, seductive, and totally bonkers film. It is filled to the brim with nudity, over-the-top action and enough ridiculous one-liners to satisfy even the most rambunctious cravings for sleaze.

When Bo and Olga were children, a mysterious stranger shot down their mother right before their eyes. The siblings alone survived the bloodshed and fled to Istanbul. Now, twenty years later, they spend their days slaving away in the desert, working for a sadistic boss in a diamond mine. That is, until they stumble upon the discovery of a lifetime: the legendary diamond, "White Fire." Time to plan a heist!

Unfortunately for the very...close sibling pair, the diamond has also drawn the attention of some dastardly villains with short tempers. Who will end up with the brilliant glowing gem that burns the hands of all who dare to touch it? The quest to capture the most sought-out diamond in the world is afoot!

Buckle in for this outrageous, action-packed, caper-tastic heist film.
