Watch: Kickstarter short film Kung Fury hits YouTube

If you’ve ever wished that life contained more time travel, punching, Norse gods and Nazis, then the new short film Kung Fury is for you.
“Hitler. The worst criminal of all time. I’m going to kill him,” says Kung Fury, a renegade cop in 1985 Miami.
David Sandberg’s film sees him hack time to travel back several decades to kill his Nazi nemesis. Things, of course, aren’t that simple – “I went too far back in time!” he exclaims in the hilarious trailer – and so find Kung Fury travelling his way through an 80s style action adventure, full of more dinosaurs, Vikings and mutants you can shake a pair of nunchuks at.
The comedy, mostly filmed against a greenscreen backdrop, was funded through a Kickstarter campaign launched in December 2013, which saw more than 17,000 people give more than $630,000 to the year-plus production. Now, the 31-minute film has landed on YouTube for everyone to see. We’ll have a full review of it shortly.
