Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. (1990) Poster

Trivia

The footage of the car crashing and flipping over has become a Troma trademark and in-joke. It was used again in Tromeo and Juliet (1996) and then as another inside joke (for those who spotted it in all three films) in Terror Firmer (1999).

No one was interested in showing the film in the US until around 1996, around when Tromeo and Juliet (1996) was released. This caused confusion as to which movie borrowed the car crash.
