Storyline

The body of a sexy aerobics instructor is invaded by the evil spirit of a dying ninja. At first, changes in her behavior is limited to having strange interactions with an arcade game, doing sexy things with V8 juice, and being attracted to an unusually hairy police officer. But soon enough, she's systematically killing, ninja-style, the officers responsible for the ninja's death, and can only be stopped by another ninja! Written by Brian J. Wright <bjwright@acs.ucalgary.ca>

User Reviews

The second best ninja movie of all time!
25 April 1999 | by jaws!See all my reviews

I was a big fan of ninja movies in the mid-80's, and some of the late 80's. I first saw this movie back in 1985. It's the second best ninja movie ever made. It's very entertaining. Plenty of action in this movie. It is nearly as good as Revenge of the Ninja. I give ninja III:the domination ***1/2 out of ****
