It is appropriate that the trailer for this year’s Old School Kung Fu Fest starts stealthily, before exploding into an orgy of chopsocky mayhem. Why? Because the 2015 lineup of the New York-based festival—which takes place at the Anthology Film Archives, April 16-19—is devoted to the subject of…ninjas!
Just how ninja-y is this year’s Kung Fu Fest? Well, the lineup includes 1981’s Enter the Ninja, 1982’s Five Element Ninjas (a.k.a. Chinese Super Ninjas), 1983’s A Life of Ninja, the same year’s Revenge of the Ninja, 1984’s Ninja III: The Domination, 1985’s American Ninja, 1987’s American Ninja 2: The Confrontation, and 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So we’re going to go ahead and declare it to be pretty, pretty ninja-tastic.
