The Crippled Masters   offscreen 2008 mini logo reviews horror action Let’s get right to the point: The Crippled Masters is a fantastic horrible movie. Hilarious and cringeworthy scenes follow one another at rapid speed, while this crippled kungfu extravaganza unfolded before our very eyes at last year’s ‘Freakshow Friday’, part of a midnight screening series at Offscreen Film Festival.

Jim Halsey (C. Thomas Howell) is still a little messed up from the events of the first film, but not so messed up that he skipped becoming a cop; although being tightly-wound and shooting people for no reason is a bad idea. He takes his girlfriend, Maggie (Kari Wuhrer), out to visit his old friend Capt. Esteridge (played by Stephen Hair this time) when his bitch girlfriend insists on stopping for a hitchhiker … also named ‘Jim’ (Jake Busey), then, as in the first film, things go badly….

Take your stinking hands off me, you damned dirty family!

Robert Neville (Charlton Heston) – the lone surviving human after a pandemic – fights madness in a deserted the Los Angeles. In addition to the scourge that is loneliness, he has to face the survivors who are horribly mutated by the disease.
