New VOD "Death Promise" Now Available!!!

It is with glee in our hearts and clumsy 70s karate vengeance on our minds that we present to you the amazing, undefinable Death Promise. So goofy, so full of confused non-actors wandering through their dialogue like kids lost at the mall, and with so much more gentle sincerity than you’d expect in a movie about systematic revenge against a group of evil slumlords. It’s Guy From Harlem meets Kill Bill meets an after-school special about friendship - in other words, we really like it.

A boardroom full of comically-dressed, openly-evil New York City rich guys are hassling their slum tenants for reasons that don’t quite get around to becoming clear. Fortunately, their harassment methods don’t go much beyond “empty a box of rats into a building that’s already filled with rats.” But when they kill an old drunk boxer, the old drunk boxer’s son makes a vow, a pledge… oh, what to call it… an oath to demise? A commitment to casualties? Well, however you want to phrase it, he and his surprisingly agreeable friend Speedy work their way through the list of baddies who wronged them. All in pursuit of the main baddie, a shadowy figure who - and we’re not making this up - sits so that you can’t see his face, only his evil hand stroking the evil cat in his lap. Again, this movie is taking itself seriously. Again, we really like it.

Settle in for some upbeat revenge with Mike, Kevin, and Bill. We don’t just promise you’ll have a good time: we Death Promise.

Can anyone give me a content warning detail?  Why the original R rating?

I don't mind a little profanity or the obvious martial arts of these things, but after getting burned by the boobs-on-parade that was Treasure of the Amazon, I'd like to know before buying this.

Mostly violence and language.  I don't think there's a woman anywhere near this movie.

So this movie is basically Batteries Not Included, the first season of the Netflix Daredevil series and The Super rolled into one?

One of his alternate names is Rocky Crevice. Is he a porn star too?

Oh bless the Gods, an early '70s film again! No mullets, puppets, new wave music or lite metal. People in Afros and psychedelic dashikis! What an incredible relief after literally months of stuff all made after 1985. The movie was cheesy-bad of course  - though the twist ending was actually pretty unexpected - but I still loved it, in the way I loved The Guy From Harlem. Also, here in San Francisco, there are some truly evil property moguls, maybe not cartoonishly so like in the movie. So...I kind of identified with the heroes...I lived in a place with a horrible landlord and greedy corporation owning it 15 years ago. So even unriffed I would have totally dug this one. But the riffing made it even more awesome! I will play this one many times...

It would have been unexpected if there had been anyone else it could have been. All of the other named characters are either one of the heroes, on the death list, one of the flunkies, or dead already. Granted, it still didn't make any sense. Well, I guess it could have been "fake beard sensei", but that would have made even less sense.

This shot up as my favorite Riff by the guys.

Why did I wait 8 months watching the movie after I bought it?
