After paying tribute to the much-missed Empire Pictures, it's now time to turn to the undisputed kings of '80s drive-in insanity, Cannon Films. Begun in the 1970s by Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, Cannon really hit its stride with a string of action films featuring ninjas, vigilantes, and of course, Chuck Norris and Charles Bronson. One of their weirder outings was the 1983 revenge flick Young Warriors, starring James Van Patten, Ernest Borgnine, Richard Roundtree, Lynda Day George, and a young Linnea Quigley. Best of all, it was directed by the amazing Lawrence D. Foldes, who brought you the cannibal caveman classic Don't Go Near the Park and the Linda Blair actioner Nightforce. The score by Rob Walsh (Revenge of the Ninja) is pretty much perfect '80s action music, with a rousing A-Team-style main theme ("American Youth") guaranteed to make you grin like an idiot and even a sinister version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" thrown in for good measure.
