Raw Force

(1982) dir Edward D. Murphy w/Cameron Mitchell, Georffrey Binney, Hope Holiday, Jillian Kesner, John Dresden [86 min; 35mm]
This no-budget ‘80s action film is also known as “Kung Fu Cannibals.” Need we say more? OK, maybe a bit more… The Burbank Karate Club is on a party cruise to a haunted island inhabited by the spirits of disgraced martial artists – that also just happens to house a gang of slavers. From terrible special effects to the most improbable of scenarios, RAW FORCE is completely bonkers and stupid amounts of fun – especially when you see it on vintage 35mm! Join American Genre Film Archive and Reel Weird Brattle for RAW FORCE, Saturday at 11:30pm. Students are just 8 bucks w/ID and the T runs late service.


We’re thrilled to be partnering with the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) on our fall line-up for the REEL WEIRD BRATTLE series. The folks at AGFA are doing valuable work by collecting, preserving and making available genre and exploitation titles that might otherwise be ignored by more high-fallutin’ institutions. Subsequently, their collection contains some of the weirdest, wildest images ever committed to celluloid – perfect for this series that celebrates cinema at the edge of sanity. Learn more about AGFA and donate to their cause at!
