Space Monster Wangmagwi (1967) - coming to Blu-ray courtesy of SRS Cinema

Sci-Fi Japan just made the big announcement.

Tentatively slated for an August or September release.

Distributor SRS Cinema has licensed North American home media rights to the Golden Fleece of obscure unreleased kaiju films!

Outside of the 1930s Japanese King Kongs, the original DAIBUTSU KAIKOKU, and the 1962 version of BULGASARI (Pulgasari), which are all considered lost films... the Korean production SPACE MONSTER WANGMAGWI (우주괴인 왕마귀, Ujugoein Wangmagwi, 1967) is the most sought after of obscure unreleased kaiju movies. It was thought lost for decades until the Korean Film Archive recently held a few festival screenings in their home country.

Directed by Gwon Hyeok-jin (THE SWORDSMAN), this sci-fi film depicts the arrival of a gigantic space creature named Wangmagwi (Big Devil) who plans to conquer the Earth. Landing in Korea, the alien goes on a rampage of destruction.
There are some images from SRS in the Sci-Fi Japan article. (I don't want to steal their thunder by copying/pasting everything.)

The VHS editions were already shipping, but it looks like the Blu-ray editions are on the way now too! I just got a tracking number from SRS.

I'm hesitating on pulling the trigger. I hate to miss out on something like this, but is it actually any good?

It's been seen so rarely that there aren't a lot of reviews, but the comments out of the Fantasia Fest screening were generally positive (but not frothing-at-the-mouth-OMG-this-is-amazing). I wouldn't expect to have your mind blown.

Yeah, I found a few on letterboxed but they're all over the place (and in other languages), so I'm not sure. I'm trying to be better about what I buy on disc nowadays, not just buying any old thing, but this feels like the kind of thing I should be adding to my library due to its uniqueness.

Iím in the same boat (in all those respects!). At least itís not expensive, and if it does sell out, the resale value should hold up pretty well. Iím trying to be more thoughtful about what I buy but canít resist a curiosity like this.

Adam, what is the subject line of the email that confirmed when you first placed your order. For some reason, I cannot find the confirmation email from when I ordered at the end of September. Thanks!

You know, that's a good point. I generally despise scalpers and such but the thought of being able to recoup my investment made it a little easier, order has been placed.

The subject line is "Order #XXXXX confirmed" -- nothing useful to key off of.

The sender is [email protected], if it helps.

Thanks Adam! This gives me some keywords to search.

Can't seem to find an email from them, but I checked a past CC statement and I did make an order for this blu ray. Going to email their customer service dpt and see if they can confirm my order came through on their end.

ETA: I received a reply, and it looks like I forgot to include an email with my order, doh!! All's well that ends well. It still ships around the end of this month.
