    I love at the bottom of the page where it warns about the brief nudity. I won’t spoil it for you.

    Ironically (or not)…

    Didn’t Chuck Norris do a film called Forced Vengeance that same year? That film starred Mary Louise Weller, also from National Lampoon’s Animal House. Funny that he’s in one film with Stephen Furst and another with her, same year. Okay, it’s not that funny.

    As a connoisseur of b movies, I have to say it’s a little annoying when I have a movie on DVD but they don’t offer a rifftrax, just a VOD.

    Yeah, yeah, they say its because you don’t know which version of the movie you have (despite releasing a rifftrax for a pirated video special , Star Wars Xmas).

    The nudity is Chuck’s bare chin. He keeps that thing under whiskers for a reason.

    I was sure Norris had more than one tallywacker. Ample warning much needed…

    Ah, the memories. I was in the 5th grade when I saw this and was a big fan of the post Halloween horror movie boom that was underway, as well as a fan of martial arts films. Chuck Norris first wave of popularity in the late 70’s was waning, but someone said, “let’s mash Halloween and a Chuck Norris kick fest together.” And I guess Flounder showed up and no one had the heart to tell him to leave.

    I thought the actor portraying the killer did a pretty good job. Too bad this is one of the most half-hearted performances by Chuck. Especially the fight choreography. It could have been a much better film, but it’s great riffing fodder.

    Does anyone know how to go about requesting a local theater start showing the live Rifftrax events? The closest town to me that shows these is a 2-hour drive away over a mountain pass, an often-dicey proposition in all but high summer. I live in a good-sized college town and can’t figure out why they’re not shown here. Thanks in advance; I REALLY want to see “Night of the Living Dead” !!

    There’s no surefire way, but I’d go to the manager of theater and ask for it personally, and get as many people as you can to do the same. I know how frustrating it can be. I live barely five minutes from a good sized Galleria and their AMC/Loews advertises RiffTrax Live but never shows it.

    I once caught the tail end of a horrible Chuck Norris movie in which the bad guy died approximately 85 times. Norris would kill him, but it turned out he wasn’t dead, and there’d be another fight. I vaguely remember him rising up out of a lake at one point. Anyone know if this is the movie?

    “The guy who played ‘Flounder'”, Stephen Furst, also played Vir Cotto in Babylon 5, and went on to direct such respected films as Dragon Storm, Path of Destruction, and Baby Huey’s Great Easter Adventure.

    I think you saw The Octagon. One of Chuck’s early period best if I recall. And it helped get the 80’s ninja craze going which made Sho Kosugi of Ninja Master, the #1 action star for a time before Jean Claud Van Damm and the kick boxers took the spotlight.

    Geez, this movie is stupid. A big steaming pile of stupid with stupid sauce and topped off with stupid sprinkles.

    In other words, perfect Rifftrax material.

    It’s one of those movis where no one looks like they’re even trying. The lesson? NEVER pay your actors in advance!

    I agree with the exception of the killer. He took the role and owned it and ran with it and sweated with it.
