Freaky Friday- Ninja 3: the Domination
This film is truly amazing--a time capsule of all that was great (and awful) about the mid 80's. If you're homesick for the cheese of the 80's (and who isn't?) then you're in luck.
The plot is actually cool. A Japanese assassin, or Ninja, has been tracked down and shot a gazillion times but manages to escape just long enough to put his soul into an unsuspecting telephone repair woman/aerobics instructor (sounds awesome...I know). His soul uses this attractive vessel to avenge his death. Enter Yamada (Sho Kosugi- master of all martial arts) who must exorcise the spirit and do some Kung Fu on his imortal soul. It's Kung Fu meets the Exorcist and it's TOTALLY AWESOME!
Sorry this movie is no longer in print, but you can see it on Video on Demand on Amazon. Check it out...you won't be disappointed. Well, actually you might be disappointed, but it's only a movie.
