Join DUMPSTER RACCOON CINEMA for MORTAL KOMBAT (1995) – the reviled ultraviolent masterpiece that put Paul W.S. Anderson (the OTHER Paul Anderson) on the map and, with a 38% on Rotten Tomatoes, that changed the soundscape and editing of action films forever. Evil wizard Shang Tsung has summoned Earth’s mightiest champions to his island. There, they will compete, and die, to at last unlock the portals of our dimension and provide the beachhead for a nightmarish otherworldly invasion. Only a select group of fighters, chosen by Earth’s protector Raiden (Christopher Lambert!) stand between him and ULTIMATE VICTORY! The secret agent SONYA BLADE! The cyborg KANO! The demonic SCORPION! The icy SUB ZERO! Martial arts master LIU KANG! Art….Art Lean? We’re not sure who that one is, but WHATEVER IT’S FINE WE’RE SURE HE’S GREA- oh he died. THAT’S FINE TOO.
