FantasticFest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and action movies from all around the world. Here's a list of some of our favorite movies at FantasticFest.
This is perhaps the funniest Kung Fu film of the 70's!
The Buddha Assassinator is part of the Shaolin Dolemite Kung Fu series. The original Dolemite films starred Rudy Ray Moore with a blend of humor, clumsy kung fu, and recycled one liners. Moore does not star in The Buddha Assassinator, but he presents the film in ornate and bad-ass fashion as only he can. The film goes nowhere with its plot, and it seems as if the director was trying to poke fun of traditional Eastern Kung Fu film making (just like Woody Allen). With Asian Kung Fu masters saying things like, "I'm gonna jack you up" and "Uncle, your feet smell" only add to the film's perverse comical fashion. The fight sequences are a step down from even films made by the Eastern Heroes film company, and on a different planet than those of Bruce Lee and Sonny Chiba. Anyhow, this film is great for midnight viewing and nonstop laughter.
