Treatment 36 -Pray for Death

Sho Kosugi makes a triumphant return to Schlock Treatment with another 80s ninja movie that bears a striking similarity to the movie in Treatment #2!

Pray for Death

It’s your standard ninja-moves-to-Houston-to-open-a-restaurant-and-ends-up-with-a-dead-wife-and-a-kid-in-the-hospital-due-to-getting-mixed-up-with-mobsters-and-has-to-exact-vigilante-justice type of film. Nothing new here.

FLIP… for another episode beginning with Marc in a bad mood, and Doug and Matt laughing about it!!!

SLICE… through the bull, as Matt and Doug reveal their relative disinterest in martial arts cinema!!!

STALK… victims along with Doug, Matt, and Marc as they take down Japanese kids, actors who write their own screenplays, Texans, incompetent cops, and Randy Quaid?!?!

You can find Pray for Death on Netflix Instant, as always. Also, check our store and find it in the DVD section, if you’re so inclined. Also, be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and while you’re there…maybe drop us a review! Thanks and enjoy this week’s episode!!

Next Week’s Prescription: Overkill starring Aaron Norris, brother of Chuck!!

  1. On Sherlock Holmes and martial arts – I have also read all the stories multiple times and my initial thought was that while Holmes is never shown using such skills he is said to possess them. In the Adventure of the Empty House Holmes claims knowledge of baritsu, ‘the Japanese system of wrestling.’ He also spent two years in Tibet – I don’t know what he might have learned there. He is an expert ‘singlestick player, boxer and swordsman.’ That all ties into baritsu apparently.

    Checked out a martial arts forum where they don’t seem to have a problem with a baritsu practitioner doing what Robert Downey Jr does in the movie. So the fact he’s utterly unconvincing as Sherlock must be down to the script or his acting rather than the martial arts apparently.

    True fans of Conan Doyle definitely shouldn’t see that movie – but in terms of keeping the character alive for a new audience it did its job well
