STORYLINE: Jack (Roddy Piper) is a building superintendent, Jack is a simple man with simple needs. He just wants to be left in peace so that he can get on with reading his book. But the tenants living in his building are always in need of him for something. Fix this, replace that, unblock this toilet. However, when the power goes out in the building the culprit is not a blown fuse or faulty wiring it is two of the tenants who have opened a portal to hell in the basement of the building. If Jack doesn’t close the portal and stop Great Cthulhu rising from his watery tomb city then the entire building, no, the entire world will go down the pan. – Mark A Wood

The Original Motion Picture to New York Ninja, by Voyag3r, was recorded, mixed and mastered by Steve Greene here at the Battle Chamber and was released on Digital, CD, Cassette and Vinyl by Mondo/Deathwaltz. The film was completed and released by Vinegar Syndrome and edited and re-directed by Kurtis Spieler.
Here is what the New York Times had to say about New York Ninja:The 1984 kung fu film was shot, but it wasn’t completed. Now, with a new director and newly recorded dialogue, the film sees the light of day.
The names of most of the original cast and crew are lost to time, and Spieler said Vinegar Syndrome tried to find Liu but wasn’t able to. This gave Spieler the chance to start fresh with the audio, commissioning a synth-heavy retro score by the Detroit band Voyag3r and fielding a murderer’s row of genre-film stalwarts to dub the actors.
