STRIKE OF THE TORTURED ANGELS (1982)
The first half of this flick is an Asian women-in-prison situation. Lots of bare asses and cat-fights are contained in this part so that's good. All the gals are little Asian ladies that look about 14 years old and also don't look very bad-ass despite whatever inane dialogue is dubbed into their mouths. One of these girls is in black-face with a curly wig on her head and I guess she's supposed to be playing a tough black chick ala Pam Grier. She's also the most annoying character in the world. At one point we find out she has tuberculosis and even this doesn't make you feel bad for this asshole. I was kinda hoping she would also come down with multiple sclerosis and whooping cough before it was all over. The shitty thing about this movie is that halfway through a couple of female prisoners escape and it becomes an overly dramatic bore about family problems or revenge against someone who slept with someone's mom or something equally dull as we follow there unexciting adventures. The director listed on this is someone named Roy Rosenberg which sounds like the most un-Chinese name possible. I'm assuming this is a made-up alias since he has no other credits. Tomas Tang might be the actual culprit here but I'm not sure.
Despite some oddball bits here and there, including mud-wrestling and pig-chasing, this one is probably something you can avoid without having missed out on much.
Typically wacko dialogue, hee hee hee!:
