I was (proudly, I may add) one of the many who helped fund this slice of 80’s awesomeness. The makers asked for $200,000. Teh Interwebz¬†stepped up and collectively gave them over $600,000. See? Sometimes the Internet does do good things.

Mr Hasselhoff himself belting out the title tune 'True Survivor'.

I can’t speak highly enough of Kung Fury. Thankfully it’s online for your viewing pleasure.

About Ronnie

Having survived the UK's 'video nasty' (prohibition) era I'm eager to catch up with all previously unseen sleaze and filth. I revel in mixtape oddness, boobage, gore, and proper latex special effects, don't get me started on CGI... - email Ronnie
