Arrow Films are bringing more Shaw Brothers films to the US (& UK) on Blu-ray this November! The first set was a beautiful monster, and this one should be just as fantastic!
The films included are:
- The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (1978) [My Review]
- Return to the 36th Chamber (1980)
- Disciples of the 36th Chamber (1985)
- Mad Monkey Kung Fu (1979)
- Five Superfighters (1979)
- Invincible Shaolin (1978)
- Kid with the Golden Arm (1979)
- The Magnificent Ruffians (1979)
- Ten Tigers of Kwangtung (1979)
- My Young Auntie (1981)
- Mercenaries from Hong Kong (1982)
- The Boxer’s Omen (1983) [My Review]
- Martial Arts of Shaolin (1986)
- The Bare-Footed Kid (1993)
What a lineup! Can’t wait to see those new scans, especially of The Boxer’s Omen! Like the first set, there’s 2 CDs of soundtrack music from the films, too. This is definitely a must-have release for Shaw Studio fans.
Miraculously, I was quoted in the book for the first Shawscope volume, but, as you can see above, my chances are slim this time as I’ve only reviewed two of the included films. Don’t let that stop you from pre-ordering this beast! I wholeheartedly recommend ordering from DiabolikDVD.com, but I’ve also included the Amazon link above for convenience.
