30 June 1999 | by (Selbyside - St. Paul, MN USA) – See all my reviews

HOLY! This movie was funny! Especially scenes with the monks. This is the plot, I think: a group of fighters go on a cruise which is ambushed by oddballs and one of their friends gets kidnapped. After shipwreck they end up on an island inhabited by cannibals, zombies, and monks. The monks buy women from a gang of punks and cook them because it supposedly gives you some kind of force. More of a martial arts than horror film, this movie will satisfy your appetite for graphic violence, if you have one. Otherwise stay away.
