NEW YORK NINJA begins its national theatrical rollout

Originally directed by and starring martial arts legend John Liu (The Secret Rivals, Invincible Armor) in his only American production, NEW YORK NINJA was filmed entirely on 35mm in 1984, but the project was abandoned during production resulting in all original sound materials, scripts, and treatments going missing. 35 years later, Vinegar Syndrome acquired the original unedited camera negative and painstakingly constructed and completed the film. 

Enlisting the voice talents of genre favorites Don “The Dragon” Wilson (Bloodfist, Whatever it Takes), Linnea Quigley (Return of the Living Dead, Nightmare Sisters), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, Auntie Lee’s Meat Pies), Vince Murdocco (Night Hunter, LA Wars), Matt Mitler (The Mutilator, Battle for the Lost Planet), Leon Isaac Kennedy (Lone Wolf McQuade, Penitentiary), Ginger Lynn Allen (The Devil’s Rejects, Vice Academy), and Cynthia Rothrock (China O’Brien, Martial Law), Vinegar Syndrome is extremely proud to present this truly one-of-a-kind film experience. 

Restored from the original camera elements, NEW YORK NINJA is finally available in all of its ridiculous over-the-top glory for the first time ever… after spending nearly four decades in film obscurity.
