Interesting DVD release of the week!

I hope to have a full DVD release calender up by the end of the week, but here's the one thing coming out on tuesday that looks pretty cool to me ...

This volume of the Eastern Horror series presents a double feature of Asian flicks blending horror and martial arts. In the Filipino film MAGIC OF THE UNIVERSE (1988), a circus magician journeys through a nightmarish netherworld in order to rescue his kidnapped daughter from the clutches of supernatural forces angry over his dabbling in the magical arts. And in the Hong Kong film COUNTER DESTROYER (1989), a screenwriter working on a film script in an old haunted house unleashes an army of the undead, including a robot-vampire and a Freddy Kruger-like creature with deadly scissorhands.

Haven't yet seen either of these films, but of particular interest is MAGIC OF THE UNIVERSE. Filipino Fantasy? Yes, please.
