Short Film: Kung Fury (Sweden, 2015)

The plot description as found on the  Kung Fury homepage: "Miami Police Department detective and martial artist Kung Fury time travels from the 1980s to World War II to kill Adolf Hitler, a.k.a. 'Kung Führer', and revenge his friend's death at the hands of the Nazi leader. An error in the time machine sends him further back to the Viking Age."
Written, directed and starring David Sandberg. OK, so you've probably heard of this flick before — who cares? When we caught this trashy and hilarious homage to crappy 80s action flicks, we peed our britches in laughter. Good enough reason for us to choose this 30-minute masterpiece of intentional ridiculousness as our Short Film of the Month for July.
Kung Fury was crowdfunded through Kickstarter, and since its release has been such a success that a feature-length version is now in the works (or at least in the talks). Watch it and laugh — and then watch the music video to David Hasselhoff's song for the flick, True Survivor, below.
