Director Y.K. Kim and Woo-sang Park’s kung fu B-movie Miami Connection is headed to select theaters this November, according to The Huffington Post. For those moviegoers with questionable taste in cinema, this is incredibly good news.
Released way back in the year that was 1987, Miami Connection follows the adventures of a synth rock band named Dragon Sound who uses their martial arts skills to take on a gang of motorcycle-riding drug peddlers. During their quest to rid the streets of crime and illegal narcotics, the heroes will stumble across a number of thugs, goons, and dastardly villains.
As a proud owner of Miami Connection on VHS, I can attest to the inherent cheesiness of Kim and Park’s ambitious motion picture. The film is littered with wonky performances, gory action, and unusually catchy synth rock tunes. Unless you spend a lot of time watching and discussing forgotten low-budget movies, chances are you didn’t even know this thing existed.
Slash Film reports that the folks at Drafthouse Films, Texas are devoted to getting Miami Connection in front of as many human beings as possible. On November 2, the film will receive a limited release into a surprising number of theaters all across the nation.
The Drafthouse website describes the film as follows:
“The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song ‘Against the Ninja,’ Mark and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the ‘stupid cocaine’ and the entire ‘Miami Connection.’ “
