8 Reasons To Watch Ninja III: The Domination2 min read

ninja iii review 1

In honor of Scream Factory releasing a new and improved Blu-ray of Ninja III: The Domination (if you don’t believe me, check out Ryne’s review right here on Cultsploitation) I figured it would be fun to make a list of the main reasons why you should check out this wacky ninja flick from the rad 80s. Honestly, I could probably list way more reasons to check it out, but I figured I should narrow it down to 8 as most people can’t read for more than 2 minutes at a time (I assume that’s what our bounce rate is so high.) Without further ado let’s breakdance/ninja kick our way into this list…

1Ninja Massacres Entire Police Force!

The opening of Ninja III: The Domination is insane. A masked ninja sneaks on to a golf course, killing a couple of people, before being chased down by the cops. Before the ninja can be stopped, he kills dozens and dozens of hapless cops. 

2 The Main Character’s obsessive need to dance, whenever, wherever. 

Our main character, Christie, is played by Lucinda Dickey, who starred in Breakin’. What is odd, though, is that Ninja III was filmed before Breakin’, but released after. So that means the dancing was not something thrown in because of her other role, but written for this movie. Now that is messed up. 

3Overt 80s Sexism 

This entire scene makes one feel very uneasy. That’s all that needs to be said about that. 

4Arcade Possession

If it wasn’t enough that Christie was partially possessed by the ninja when they held hands, the ninja also needed to take possession of her arcade machine to finish the job. You know, writing it out still doesn’t make it make any more sense, but gosh darn it, what a scene! 

5Exorcist on Steroids

What does one want when watching a ninja movie? Why, an Exorcist homage! This scene is bonkers, and I’m loving every second of it.  

6V8 Sexual Feelings

Supposedly this scene involved even more V8 juice, but was cut as audiences wouldn’t have been able to control themselves. 

7Sword Vs. Music

Flying sword does not like your music and flying sword don’t give a shit if you don’t agree. 

8Love is blind; love is hairy.

One assumes Christie does not mind the silky smooth, thick shoulder hair slowly sliding around her face. 

That my friends are 8 solid reasons to check out the wackadoodle Ninja III: The Domination, and what better way than with Scream Factory’s gnarly Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release

Voted Thanks!


Michael has been watching horror movies since he was three. In hindsight, it probably wasn't a good idea. He owns and operates the horror website Reviews From the Mind of Tatlock (www.mindoftatlock.com), and is always looking for ways to become more famous; preferably in a legal way.

You have got to be joking.

I feel like there is a good possibility that this article was written with some light humor in mind and merely an opinion piece. I could be wrong, though, as I only wrote it.

There aren’t any jokes in Ninja III: The Domination, only a very realistic depiction of ninja possession. Careful now or it might happen to you.
