If you are a fan of ridiculously bad movies that do pretty much everything at an arbitrary level, then Edward D. Murphy's Kung Fu Cannibals is a film you probably will enjoy. The film has zombies, cannibalistic monks, female slavery, a Hitler wannabe, Gay henchmen and a gratuitous amount of nudity. Oh, and the acting from pretty much top to bottom is atrociously bad from start to finish. Kung Fu Cannibals is essentially a mix of sleaze and action sequences that are loosely strung together by a ridiculous narrative, so basically what you'd expect from any film called Kung Fu Cannibals. While I enjoyed it for what it was, in particular the unintentional funny dialogue and ridiculous stunts, Kung Fu Cannibals left me expecting more, given the title alone, with the film never quite going as over-the-top as I was hoping. For example, there needed to be more Cannibalism and action, as the film tended to drag, a really bad sign for a film of this ilk. It's entirely possible that these type of films just don't do it for me the way they used to, and I wasn't inebriated, but I never found this film to be the same level of absurdest, bad-movie fun as other favorites like Ricky-Oh and Miami Connection.
