Force: Five (1981)

Nomination Year: 2009
SYNOPSIS:  An evil cult leader is recruiting vulnerable rich kids to his private island, getting them to sign over their inheritances to him, then killing them. That's okay until they target a senator's daughter -- then it's time to assemble a team of martial artists to take down the cult. First off, we need to introduce each member of the team in a pointless martial arts fight that has nothing to do with the plot. Once that's out of the way, it's time to head off to the island with the senator in tow, to beat up some cultists and try to find a good steak.

"Let's Up The Rating To 'R'"

A Fate Worse Than ...
Our hero heroically sneaks past... a tent full of naked women. Whew! Good thing THEY didn't catch him!

"Cutting Butter With A Chainsaw"

The bad guy lets an angry bull loose into a maze with our hero. There's a lot of running in circles, until.... Let's just say that a lightbulb, a throwing star, and several barrels of gasoline figure prominently.
