The short film Kung Fury is a homage and a love letter to the 80's from the director David Sandberg.

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.

The film was crowdfunded in the beginning of 2014 and released on the 28th of may 2015.

The film is now available for free!
