Parody films

A parody film is a subgenre of comedy film that parodies other film genres or films as pastiches, works created by imitation of the style of many different films reassembled together. A parody; also called a spoof, send-up, take-off, lampoon, play on (something), caricature, or joke, is a work created to imitate, make fun of, or comment on an original work—its subject, author, style, or some other target—by means of satiric or ironic imitation.

Cut-and-paste films

Between 1985 and 1989, many "Ninja"-titled Z-movies were written and/or directed by Hong Kong-based low budget director Godfrey Ho. Ho's "cut-and-paste" technique of creating his ninja movies involved shooting a large amount of largely random ninja combat and interstitial footage that would be spliced with existing footage from incomplete, abandoned, or lesser known Asian films, many of which were not martial arts films; as a result, these films often appear to have two parallel storylines. The films were recorded without sound, so although the gweilo actors spoke English while recording their lines, they were dubbed over by other voice actors. Ho reportedly used multiple pseudonyms to direct these films, so the exact number of films that can be credited to him as such is unclear. The production and distribution of the majority of these cut-and-paste films were through Joseph Lai's companies IFD Films & Arts Limited (39 films) and ADDA Audio Video Limited (2 films), and Tomas Tang's Filmark International Ltd. (at least 28 films). Additionally, two other Hong Kong-based companies, First Films and Ocean Shores, produced and distributed 1 film each.From 2012 to 2013, a parody homage web series entitled Ninja the Mission Force was produced by Dark Maze Studios.[81]
