Uncompleted Filmark International Ninja movies List????


During years I have been trying to compile a full ninja movie list from Filmark International. I haven't got it yet becuase as all of us know Filmark was destroyed by a big fire on Garley's Gallery & dissapeared forever. I got many pressbooks from Filmark when some Spanish companies bought their films at the end of the 80's but as I said before, I haven't got a full catalog list from Tomas Tang's company.

Here I dare to publish what I call Uncomplete Ninja films from Filmark based on my own collection & the movies that contained Filmark logo. If someone finds mistakes, missing titles or just want to add a title, please feel free to contact me or just leave a message.

There is an Alexander Lo Rei ninja movie titled MAFIA Vs NINJA which is wrongly added to Filmark's catalog. This movie wa distributed by Golden Sun Films. Filmark has nothing to do with it.

If you own or know a ninja movie from Filmark International that is not included in this list, please let me know & we could add it to list!

  1. Regarding NINJA KILLER: Doesn't the three masked guys, whose leader turns out to be Kong To, who attack Bolo's apartment early in the movie count as pseudo-ninjas at least? :-)
    Great blog by the way! Thanks & congradts.. It is a great help to me in learning about who's & how's of the cut&paste ninja craze of the 1980s.
    One question: If Ho wasn't really involved with Filmark, who was their director of added scenes and also who oversaw the final post-production? Tang himself? Actually, I am especially interested in the people behind the 1986 NINJA KILLER re-shoot & re-edit. Who is "Lawrence Chan", the credited director? Who are "Peter Ronald", "Richard M.H.D", "Michael Tai", credited as the production team? Cheers

  2. Thanks a lot for for your message!!!
    Yeap, you may be right, those three guys could be taken as ninjas...but,this idea only works if you are a very open-minded person!!!! hehehehehe.

    Many technicians who were working for IFD worked for Filmark as well. For example the dubbers were the same team at both companies, the editor Vincent Leung was also working for both producers & many more companies...

    Godfrey Ho is credited as production designer in many Filmark kung fu movies ditributed by Tomas Tang before Tang decided to produce his own cut & paste flicks. But I firmly believe Ho never directed a single movie for Filmark. He directed a movie titled Top Mission & it was sold internationally by Filmark.

    Who are behind Filmark pseudonyms???? Who really knows?, there are some people who appear in most of those Filmark movies who were credited under different names: Action director Tony Kong could easily be Donal Kong, also ex-venom Sun Chien.
    Tommy Cheng Kai Ying was to Filmark what Godfrey Ho & Philip Ko were to IFD, I mean he was one of the regular directors who worked in the ninja cut & paste movies at Filmark. But as it happened at IFD, they were a bunch of directors.
    Patrick Kong directed some Filmark ninja movies.

    I am very happy you like & enjoy the blog!!! Thanks so much!

  10. Ninja Death Squad is another aka title for Ninja warriors from beyond. The cast is totally different from the credits because the main actor is Danny Raisebeck who played evil roles on IFD's Thunder of gigantic serpernt & the main villain on Ninja of the magnificent. Joff Houston was the the "name" Jonathan Isgar used on his Filmark movies.

    About ninja assassins, I have no clue what movie is...that's why I the post title is Filmark uncompleted ninja movie list... Would you have any cover, pic, or graphic material about it? It would be great if there is another Filmark movie.

    THanks a lot for your message!

  16. I got your mail & I check the pics. This Filmark movie is BIONIC NINJA so Ninja Assassins is another aka title for this Tomas Tang's production.

    But it can be a bit confused because Leo Fong's Enforcer from Death Row was also re-titled Ninja Assassins but it has nothing to do with Filmark.

    Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate this kind of help because it is very useful to reconognice such titles & prove that IFD & Filmark didn't produce so many movies as people still think. I add the aka title to Bionic ninja!

  17. Ok, but is there another different film also known as "Bionic Ninja"? The first movie review link I sent you has this at the bottom of the page:

    "Not to be confused with Godfrey Ho’s BIONIC NINJA (1986) that isn’t half as entertaining as this one, which is also known as BIONIC NINJA in some territories."

    When you click on the BIONIC NINJA link, it's for a different film...?

    ResponderEliminar
  18. Yes, the other movie titled BIONIC NINJA is another German title for IFD's Ninja Knight: Thunderfox.
