Samurai Cop

A FILM BY: Amir Shervan
WRITTEN BY: Amir Shervan
STARRING: Matt Hannon, Mark Frazer, Robert Z’Dar

Presented by Deadly Prey 

Prepare to question everything you thought you knew about roundhouse kicks, thongs, and katana beheadings. Joe (Matt Hannon, Sylvester Stallone’s one-time bodyguard) is the Samurai Cop, a rock of a man who will do literally whatever it takes to punish criminals -- even if that means taking dozens of innocent lives in the process. Teamed with a truly hilarious partner (Mark Frazer), Joe embarks on a mindmelting sex-and-violence-fueled adventure against evil ninjas, drug dealers, and genre legend Robert Z’Dar (MANIAC COP)! Directed by prolific Iranian ex-pat Amir Shervan, the reckless and outrageous SAMURAI COP is a true treasure of the trash-action pantheon.
