RAW FORCE (1982)
Bad guys, led by a dude with an Hitler mustache, kidnap women and trade them for jade to a bunch of crazy monks on an island. The monks (led by the king of Philippines exploitation, Vic Diaz) cook and eat the women which gives them the power to raise the dead! Cameron Mitchell is the captain of a whole big lust boat full of sluts and martial arts students. The mustache guy doesn't want them sailing anywhere near the island, he's afraid they'll find out about all that jade. So his henchmen attack and kill a bunch of the passengers and set the boat on fire. The survivors make it to the island on a raft, but then they have to deal with the ninja zombies that the monks have resurrected! This movie has very little happening in the first 30 minutes (mostly people talking and hanging out at a strip club) but once the boat starts sailing things move fast. There's a few famous b-movie actresses in this: Jillian Kesner (Firecracker (1981)), 80's scream queen Jewel Shepard, Carla Reynolds (who is tied up naked to a bed by a guy in a nazi helmet) and Camille Keaton (I Spit On Your Grave (1978)) as "girl in toilet". This was the last movie produced by Lawrence Woolner of the famous Woolner Brothers. At the end it says, "To Be Continued", but how could you ever continue this??
