I'd never heard of either of them before. I took at peek at their trailers on YouTube, and it looks like the poster art being used for the Blu-ray covers probably cost more to make than either movie actually did.

No doubt! I grabbed both of those on DVD back when VCI had them super-cheap in one of their sales, and I still spent too much.

This post is from August, but KL picked up the 1st 2 American Ninja movies. Olive Films previously had the rights.



They said in their post that sales of these two will help decide if they pick up 3 and 4. They won't pick up 5 because WB has the rights and KL doesn't do business with them.

Icons of cool John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Broken Arrow) and Nicolas Cage (The Rock, Con Air) let the bullets fly in this mind-blowing, face-swapping action epic. FBI agent Sean Archer (Travolta) knows how to stop elusive terrorist Castor Troy (Cage). He’ll become him. Archer undergoes a futuristic surgery and has Troy’s face mapped onto his, then infiltrates the terrorist’s world to discover his deadly secrets. But as much as Archer looks and acts like Troy, he doesn’t really know him. He never figures Troy will retaliate and force doctors to transform him into Archer. Now the agent faces a shattering nightmare: his archrival is living with his family. The Travolta/Cage star-power comes on strong and so does the excitement in this roaring thrill machine of a movie from master action director John Woo (The Killer, Hard Target). So buckle up. It’s going to be a furious fight.

Nice. Basically new transfer and new commentary from Leeder and Venema. The rest is legacy extras. That's cool with me. One of Woo's best American movies.

Has to be a PQ upgrade, the Blu-rays were lacking in quality.

I agree Face/off is one of Woo’s best Hollywood movies. I loved it back in the day but I’m not sure how well it holds up now. I really wish we could get a decent release of The Killer and Hard Boiled someday.

New 4K of Kindergarten Cop with 2 new commentaries




This was on Netflix recently and I re-watched it and it's still charming for being 30+ years old.

Re: The One and Only Kino Lorber Blu-ray Thread

Noticed a new 'Kino Cult' title coming up that I don't think was mentioned in this thread, #4 in the series and out Dec. 19: Jess Franco's SINNER: THE SECRET DIARY OF A NYMPHOMANIAC (1973)
https://kinolorber.com/product/sinne...a-nymphomaniac

A Film by legendary cult director Jesús “Jess” Franco (The Diabolical Dr. Z, The Blood of Fu Manchu, Venus in Furs, Count Dracula, Lorna… the Exorcist). Made at the height of Franco’s creative prowess, Sinner: The Secret Diary of a Nymphomaniac is a grindhouse Citizen Kane: a moody tale of one woman’s sexual evolution and shocking demise, told through the eyes of those who knew her. When Linda (Montserrat Prous) dies in the arms of her lover (Manuel Pereiro), the man’s wife (Jacqueline Laurent) investigates the dead woman’s past, to try and clear her husband’s name. As it weaves together the tangled threads of Linda’s tragic life, Sinner leads the viewer into a voyeuristic labyrinth of seedy discotheques, sultry jazz clubs, and delicious ’70s sex pads, backed with an acid rock soundtrack and oversaturated visuals that bring the film to the edge of psychedelia. Within its depths, Sinner reveals unexpected layers of narrative and emotional complexity, demonstrating why Franco remains one of the most under-appreciated filmmakers of European cinema.​​​​​

Product Extras
  • NEW Audio Commentary by Novelist and Critic Tim Lucas
  • Interview with Actress Jacqueline Laurent
  • Interview with Actress Anne Libert
  • Interview with Editor Gérard Kikoïne
  • Includes Both English and French Audio Tracks
  • Optional English Subtitles

I might get The Perfect Weapon when it goes on sale. Revenge of the Ninja is a re-release. I don't like it that much to double dip.

Re: The One and Only Kino Lorber Blu-ray Thread

Thought these looked interesting. Nice to see them bundling some of this older stuff together in single cases just to get it out there (or out there again in some cases):



Sci-fi and horror collide in 3 bone-rattling and bizarre B-Movie classics! THE UNKNOWN TERROR (1957) – A millionaire (John Howard) leads a remote jungle expedition to find the legendary “Cave of the Dead” where his wife’s (Mala Powers) brother had disappeared long ago. Instead, they stumble upon a mad doctor who has created a horde of foam-spewing, fungus-covered monster-men! Directed by Charles Marquis Warren (Back from the Dead) and shot by Joseph F. Biroc (Bwana Devil) in spine-chilling “Regalscope.” THE COLOSSUS OF NEW YORK (1958) – When a brilliant scientist (Ross Martin) is accidentally killed, his preserved brain is transferred to the body of a giant robot so that it can continue to serve mankind. But when it gains awareness of its own hideousness, this steel colossus embarks on a rampage of destruction! Directed by Eugène Lourié (Gorgo) and co-starring Mala Powers as the deceased man’s horrified wife and Otto Kruger as his obsessed, mad-scientist father. DESTINATION INNER SPACE (1966) – When an object of unknown origin is detected in the area of an underwater laboratory, scientists investigate and come face to face with the object—an extraterrestrial saucer! They board the craft and discover a mysterious cylinder, which they take back to the lab for closer inspection. It is then that events take a monstrous turn! Directed by Francis D. Lyon (Castle of Evil) and starring Scott Brady, Sheree North and Gary Merrill. Destination Inner Space was shot in Eastmancolor by cinematographer Brick Marquard (Foxy Brown).

Product Extras :
  • HD Masters by Paramount Pictures – From 4K Scans
  • NEW Audio Commentary for THE UNKNOWN TERROR by Film Historian Stephen Bissette
  • NEW Audio Commentary for THE COLOSSUS OF NEW YORK by Film Historians Tom Weaver, Larry Blamire and Ron Adams

​​​​​​These four acclaimed chillers from Republic Pictures are guaranteed to put a tingle down your spine and a smile on your face! THE LADY AND THE MONSTER (1944) – Erich von Stroheim plays a mad scientist bent on keeping the brain of millionaire William Donovan alive after he removes it from Donovan’s dying body. His assistant (Richard Arlen) serves as host for Donovan’s brain impulses; the lady of the title (Vera Ralston) fights against the monstrous experiment. THE PHANTOM SPEAKS (1945) – The vengeful spirit of an executed murderer (Tom Powers) enters the body of a physician (Stanley Ridges), and forces him to do its bidding—namely, murder. A newspaperman (Richard Arlen) must unravel the bloody supernatural secret before it’s too late. THE CATMAN OF PARIS (1946) – After a mysterious cat-like creature slaughters people close to him, Parisian Charles Regnier (Carl Esmond) is suspected of murder. Charles fears that he is the beast, but his paramour Marie (Lenore Aubert) and best friend Henry (Douglass Dumbrille) believe he’s innocent…until the Catman begins to stalk Marie! VALLEY OF THE ZOMBIES (1946) – Long-dead madman Ormand Murks (Ian Keith) once believed that endless blood transfusions would make him immortal. Now resurrected via voodoo, he stalks the city for human blood. A woman (Adrian Booth) falls under Ormand’s hypnotic, vampiric spell.

And this one is WAY overdue. I remember reviewing DEATH MACHINE on Trimark’s VHS back in the day and thinking how exceptional it was for a low-budget feature, even in awful pan & scan. The influences were screamingly obvious, but I don’t think they were a big secret; and besides, the film was more of a calling card than anything. The director, FX guy Stephen Norrington, got BLADE in part due to this film, but flamed out with the misfired LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN in 2003 and hasn’t directed since. This was on U.S. DVD, briefly, from Trimark, but it was pan/scan and supplement-free, so it will be nice to finally toss it and get this one, which includes three versions of the film, loads of extras, and Norrington finally participating. This was also Rachel Weiss’s first theatrical film. The “foreign version” here was released on a Spanish Blu years ago, and probably in other countries as well, so it’s cool they’ve included it and allowed Norrington to make a new director’s cut.



The year is 2003. Chaank Industries, ruthless world leaders in future weapons technology, hires a new Chief Executive, Hayden Cale. Cale soon uncovers a secret and unethical weapons project the company is involved in. Her first order of business is to shut it down. Her troubles just begin as she also tries to fire the company technological mastermind, Jack Dante—a childlike psychotic with a dark genius for exotic weapons design. Dante retaliates by unleashing into the corporate headquarters the Death Machine—the ultimate killing unit. A weapon that tracks its target by sensing fear and has the power to rip through walls with its hard steel strength and razor teeth. Cale must wage a desperate bloody battle with the terrifying force that has no mercy, no pity and no fear in this cutting-edge cyberpunk classic from filmmaker and SFX wizard Stephen Norrington (Blade, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). Dante is played with oddball relish by Brad Dourif (Child’s Play, Spontaneous Combustion) in a cast featuring Ely Pouget (The Rift), William Hootkins (Star Wars, Hardware), John Sharian (The Machinist), Richard Brake (3 from Hell) and Rachel Weisz (The Mummy). This 2-disc special edition loaded with extras includes three cuts of the film, The 100-minute U.S. version, the 122-minute foreign version and newly created 106-minute director’s cut in 7.1 surround sound.

They’re also putting out a new edition of John Waters CRY-BABY with a lot of new supplements, including an interview with (hmmm) Amy Locane who, as far as I can tell, is still in prison after being re-sentenced to a second term for her vehicular homicide in 2010:





Eisenhower is President. Rock ’n’ Roll is king. And Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the baddest hood in his high school. Screen idol Johnny Depp heads up a divine cast as the irresistible bad boy whose amazing ability to shed one single tear drives all the girls wild—especially Allison Vernon-Williams (Amy Locane), a rich, beautiful “square” who finds herself uncontrollably drawn to the dreamy juvenile delinquent and his forbidden world of rockabilly music, fast cars and faster women. It’s the hysterical high-throttle world of 1954 in this outrageous musical comedy from the marvelously maniacal mind of John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray). Also starring Susan Tyrrell, Iggy Pop, Ricki Lake, Traci Lords, Kim McGuire, Darren E. Burrows, Stephen Mailer and Polly Bergen, with appearances by Troy Donahue, Mink Stole, Joe Dallesandro, Joey Heatherton, David Nelson, Willem Dafoe and Patricia Hearst.
