| Fun Only if You Are a Fan of the 80's
I am surprised when I looked this movie up on IMDb that no one has left feedback for this movie. I am also surprised that this movie doesn't have any comments. It seems this movie is rather unknown. Lost in the 80's. It's to bad because this movie was a lot of fun if you are into the whole mid to late 80's genre of movies.

Basically, the story opens up with a woman being sacrificed and her heart being ripped out of her chest. The rest of the movie doesn't exactly follow that beginning as it turns into a standard crime drama. The police are after these Satanic Cults and they have no leads. A man is released from prison and gets involved in fighting these Cultist with a friend and a female singer. All this leads up to a fun finale that is surprisingly very violent.

This movie reminded me of a lot of the 80's horror/crime drama's I used to watch back then. It has all the feel of American cinema plus all of the awesome Kung-Fu and Hong Kong humor. That is another thing, this movie does have a good bit of action in it. Especially the end of the movie with two particular bad guys that just won't stay down!

Once again, all of you who are into the 80's, this one is worth having if you can find it. 7/10
