John Ary here with my favorite film so far from Fantastic Fest 2012.
Miami Connection was produced by Tae Kwon Do Grandmaster Y.K. Kim in the mid-80's and almost every studio and distributor on the planet passed on it. No matter how you slice it this brawler is terrible, but it's produced in such a sweet and passionately amateur fashion, that you can't help but root for the members of the synth-pop band Dragon Sound as they battle an evil clan of ninjas based out of Miami.
Terry Malloy and I will surely be watching this again several times once it hits Blu-ray...
I had the chance to sit down to talk with Master Kim and the drummer from Dragon Sound Joe Diamand about their experiences making Miami Connection. Look for that interview on Tuesday.
