Don "The Dragon" Wilson from the Bloodfist series is back in another Roger Corman-produced action film. Here, he uses his martial-arts prowess to defend rock-and-roll singer Shanna (Deirdre Imershein) from a vicious serial killer (Mathias Hues). It's filled with stock characters like the "corrupt record producer" (Richard Beymer of Twin Peaks), and the killer is, naturally, a deranged Vietnam veteran. Never one to let a successful idea rest, Corman let director Charles Phillip Moore remake this in the Philippines as Angel of Destruction the same year, as well as funding a sequel, Blackbelt 2: Fatal Force.
