If you only see one Cannon Film in your lifetime, let it be Ninja III: The Domination. You might be concerned that you won’t get the movie if you haven’t seen the previous two. Don’t fret about it. There’s nothing in those first two films to prepare you for the pure wildness of this 1984 classic. How wild does it get? The star of Breakin’ is a telephone lineman by day and an aerobics instructor at night. That’s normally enough for an ’80s plot that’s ripping off Flashdance. But there’s more on the screen. An evil ninja dies in battle and his spirt takes control of the aerobics instructor. Can she free her soul? James Hong (Kung Fu Panda) is down for the action. While Scream Factory came out with a Blu-ray back in 2013. Now five years later they’re giving it a Collector’s Edition which includes catching up with star Lucinda Dickey. This has everything you want from a Cannon Film: a desire to cash in on a trend, over the top action and a vanishing production budget. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory with the details:
NINJA III: THE DOMINATION
COMING TO BLU-RAY ON JUNE 12, 2018
He’s the ultimate killer. She’s the perfect weapon.
The wild 80s cult classic Ninja III: The Domination [Collector’s Edition] is coming to Blu-ray from Scream Factory on June 12, 2018, loaded with exciting new special features. Customers ordering directly from ShoutFactory.com will receive an exclusive poster, while supplies last.
Aerobic instructor Christie Ryder (Lucinda Dickey, Breakin’, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo) becomes possessed by the spirit of an evil ninja when she comes to his aid after he was shot down. Dominated by the killer’s vicious and relentless rage, she sets out to brutally attack his enemies. Her boyfriend, confused by Christie’s changing personality and afraid that he might be her next victim, enlists the help of Yamada (Shô Kosugi, Enter the Ninja, Revenge of the Ninja). In a life-threatening exorcism and ultimate fight to the death, Yamada proves that he is Christie’s only chance for survival.
