Kurando Mitsutake's "Karate Kill," a low-budget action movie shot in Japan and the United States with hardly any digital assistance, is an old-school throw-back, right down to the retro poster that prominently features the worked-out body and deadly left fist of mononymous star Hayate.

Back in 2009, I caught a little movie called Samurai Avenger: The Blind Wolf at a beer-soaked midnight screening at the Asian Film Festival of Dallas. I was tipsy, but I was also blown away by this super fun slice of retro exploitation fun from a director named Kurando Mitsutake.

"The real showcase here is Kirk Geiger as Vendenski. An utterly amazing nut-case of a performance. I hadn't heard of Geiger beforehand, but I'll be keeping my eye on him from now on."
