Image has acquired the license to (finally) release the Shaw Bros. catalog in the US. Their first film they're putting out is an inspired choice: the classic HK Horror flick BLACK MAGIC. You can get info on the release, coming out on 9/12/06, here. They list the features, have a trailer and a first look at the cover. Which, frankly, I don't like at all. But, oh well. We love this film and Hong Kong pulp cinema in general, so we're incredibly excited about all this to say the least.
Other titles coming soon:
INTIMATE CONFESSIONS OF A CHINESE COURTESAN
THE MAGIC BLADE
THE WATER MARGIN
and most importantly for us, BOXER'S OMEN, in our opinion, one of the greatest films ever made!
Let's hope BLACK MAGIC 2, KILLER SNAKES, OILY MANIAC and the absolutely astonishing SEEDING OF A GHOST are not to far away either.
