I know that the whole "Ninjas vs ..." stick has been overplayed on both sides of the Pacific but today I stumbled upon this while doing my usual online stalking ........ I mean research.

"Ninjas vs Monsters" is actually, as I discovered, the third film in a series produced by independent movie maker Justin Timpane and his crew at Endlight Entertainment. The first two being, of course, Ninjas Vs. Vampires and Ninjas Vs. Zombies.

As you may have guessed "Ninjas vs Monsters" is exactly what the title implies, Japanese assassins fighting an array of classic movie monsters including Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and The Mummy.

Here is the plot:

In this final installment, the Ninjas and their friends find themselves pitted against the most evil and memorable monsters of them all- Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Werewolf, and MORE! Loaded with martial arts action, bloody horror, gun play, magic, comedy, pop-culture references, and a tightly woven twist-filled plot, NINJAS VS MONSTERS looks to be the biggest and best film in the trilogy.

Overall the film reminds me a little too much of Jesse Cook's "Monster Brawl" and about a dozen films made in Japan over the past half-decade, but Timpane got my attention with their promo video for Kickstarter:

Yes, they got a girl to take her top off ...... and that's a classy way to promote a movie!

No, honestly the guys look like they're having fun with the project which should translate into a fun film that doesn't take itself too seriously.
