Coming February 16 to the internet is the premiere of NINJA THE MISSION FORCE, a new action/comedy web series from Dark Maze Studios that pays comedic homage to the ultra-low-budget ninja films of international B-movie maven Godfrey Ho. That’s the man responsible for producing cheesy, cut-and-paste martial arts movies combining leftover action reels from other films with new, C-grade footage of Caucasian fighters running around in multi-colored ninja suits with headbands that actually say “ninja.”
When evil ninja Bruce (Brad Jones) sets out to obtain Ultimate Ninja Power and rule the world, it’s up to Gordon (Ed Glaser) to stop him. After all, it takes a ninja to defeat a ninja. And a ninja is exactly what Gordon is. A ninja.
Based on the philosophy that “everything’s better with ninjas,” NINJA THE MISSION FORCE is a loving homage to the notorious cut-and-paste ninja films of IFD and Filmark, in which ninja-based story lines are incongruously crowbarred into unrelated films. It’s also the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to see ninjas, Orson Welles, gladiator midgets and dinosaurs all in one series.
The series will be screening at Darkmaze.com with new episodes uploaded every Thursday. A trailer is available at the site.
