BLOOD WILL FLOW. BODIES WILL RISE. DO UNTO OTHERS . . .
Official Press Release
"The Revenge Of Shinobi" is a fantasy / adventure film set in the not too distant future.
Following the destruction of civilization in The East by unknown dark forces, the last remaining survivor of the onslaught, the powerful warrior Shinobi (Natalia Cullen) travels to The West to prevent further loss of life.
There, on the outskirts of the dystopian capital city, she meets a young Shaman (Ashlee Foley) who leads a resistance from a network of underground tunnels. Together they embark on a quest that will lead them down dark paths, in a test of physical and mental power towards the ultimate battle between good and evil.
After a clash with the private army of the corrupt city Mayor (Michael Parle) and his cunning assistant Miss Fielding (Sophia Scott) they are separated by a dramatic event that will put Shinobi in a head-on collision course with the darkest force of all in a modern tale of survival, betrayal, loss and revenge.
CAST & CREW
The film is written and directed by Gary Kenneally, the director of the 2012 documentary "Let The People Sing" which charted the rise of controversial Irish band The Wolfe Tones and premiered to critical acclaim at the Los Angeles Irish Film Festival.
