Raw Force (1982)

A group of vacationing martial arts students on a cruise ship accidentally wind up on Warrior Island, where precious Jade is being mined by traders who are working in cahoots with cannibalistic monks who sacrifice some of their potential meals (all attractive nubile women supplied by a German who appears to be Hitler’s chubby brother!) to a graveyard full of Kung Fu warriors, who come back from the dead to protect the monks.

Oh, and the waters around the island are filled with piranhas.

The filmmakers decided much of the movie – shot on location in the Philippines – didn’t need to make any sense but it’s a lot of fun to watch.

With a lot of gratuitous nudity, bad special effects, zombie warriors, stock footage from other movies, and a lot of poorly choreographed Kung Fu fight sequences, Raw Force is the low-budget martial arts action-horror film you never knew you needed to see.

Sit back and enjoy this glorious mess for all it’s worth.
