Description

Late one night, frustrated comic book artist Leonard Miller witnesses the brutal rape and murder of a young couple at the hands of ruthless small-town thugs. Seeking vigilante justice, Miller decides to become his most famous character, stalking the night intent on spilling the blood of any criminal who stands in his way! Written, produced, and directed by J.R. Bookwalter (“The Dead Next Door,” “Ozone”), “Robot Ninja” slashes, stabs, guts, pokes, and jabs its way to a climactic finale, putting a unique imprint on the superhero genre.

Painstakingly restored from a 2K film scan of the original 16mm A/B roll cut negative with a dynamic new 5.1 surround sound remix, VHS-era video store classic “Robot Ninja” slashes its way onto Blu-ray together with two audio commentaries and over an hour of behind-the-scenes extras.
