The dark forces of the universe have conspired to take control over the violent inner city youth of Los Angeles. Pharaoh, The Dominator, an ancient Egyptian day-walking vampire is resurrected from his tomb and travels to the blistering mean streets of South Central Los Angeles. Upon arrival he descends upon the most violent street gang in the city and begins to take control. Once these uncastigated adolescents are fully under his command they can be unleashed on the unsuspecting population of the Earth and human slavery will ensue. Enter the Blade Sisters.

The Blade Sisters: Ebony, Ecstasy, and Raven are three young and beautiful African-American, Samurai Sword carrying, saviors of society. They have been trained in the ancient techniques of sword warfare and the martial arts by the famed ethereal master Onyx. They know their mission, they must battle their way through the minions of Pharaoh and overpower the dark forces to send him back to his foreboding tomb — no easy task as he possesses the strength of a thousand men and can hypnotize any mortal with a single glance into their eyes.

Blade Sisters rock their way through a gangsta’ rap world with the cunning skills of flashing Samurai Sword mastery. Their excellence with the sword is only surpassed by their beauty. Stand back Pharaoh, the Blade Sisters have come to kick your ass.

Film Facts:
The shooting title for this film was Blade Sisters.

Below is an article published by Daily Variety on January 6, 1999 about Tanya York and it mentions Donald G. Jackson and myself, Scott Shaw, detailing my early involvement with the film. …Yes, I do write scripts. Or, maybe better put, once upon a time I did.

Taking this deal pretty much began the end of Donald G. Jackson. By this point in time he was getting very sick from leukemia and Tanya ended up suing him as he did not deliver what he had promised. I actually have footage of the moment where Don made the choice to switch from shooting this movie on film, (which was the contractual requirement), and moving it over to video. That choice pretty much destroyed the rest of Don's financial life. At some point I plan to edit that footage, (along with a lot of other footage I have on DGJ), and release it as the sequel to Diary of a Michigan Migrant Film Worker, Diary of a Michigan Migrant Film Worker: Part Two.
