Final Executioner, The (1984)
After a nuclear holocaust, as the rest of society regresses to primitivism, a small elite group manage to escape radioactive contamination and hole up in a massive mansion surrounded by lush grounds. In this every-man-for-himself, kill-or-be-killed, survival-of-the-fittest environment , the callous upper class now get their twisted jollies off by hunting expendable contaminated poor folks.
The story follows Alan, a decent but wimpy guy that narrowly escapes death and is nursed back to health by a tough, but tender-hearted ex-cop Sam. Sam transforms Allan into a mean, fast, ultra-lethal fighting machine through harsh, painful and arduous training for his goal of tracking down the wealthy nihilistic scum that nearly did him in.
This gritty, ugly and ferocious little film gets by on the basis of its raw, no-frills, rough-edged brutality which is what exploitation trash is all about. It unnervingly blurs the line between the good guys and the bad guys by depicting a grim future where violence and savagery are an everyday part of life.
