But Cory, more testicles mean more iron!

Second, about Ninja Commandments. There was a trio of Hong Kong filmmakers named Godfrey Ho, Tomas Tang and Joseph Lai. They initially worked together at the Hong Kong-based IFD studios, but then suffered a rift and Tomas Tang formed Filmark Studios. The business model for both studios was to take Hong Kong, Taiwanese, Thai or South Korean movies that were unreleased or not completed, and insert cheaply-filmed sequences featuring Caucasian actors, dub the film in English in such a way that the two films were sort of releated, and then release the film in Western markets. The vast majority of these cut n’ splice movies ended up being ninja related, even if the original footage had nothing to do with ninjas (for example, rape revenge, softcore porn, Fatal Attraction knock-offs, Thai films about giant alligators, etc.). One of the most infamous non-ninja movies that Tomas Tang and Godfrey Ho did was ROBO VAMPIRE, which pitted a ROBOCOP rip-off against Chinese hopping vampires! The most beloved ninja-related cut n’splice movie among fans of this genre is probably NINJA TERMINATOR, where Caucasian ninjas communicate with each other via toy robots…played completely straight.
