I bought it from Eastern Records in Malaysia. I bought 3 dvds and the total came to 45 RM ($14!!). The postage came to 88 RM ($27) !!! :lol:

So that's around $40 which wouldn't be too bad a deal at any store in the west but quite expensive from an eShop in Asia. So I recommend you get it from Sensasian (the only reason I ordered it from there is that one of the other films, Sundal Bolong, isn't available anywhere else).

Personally I buy most of my Asian stuff from Hong Kong but I thought I'd just mention that Tartan UK has just closed down:

An auction for a film, which on Greek video is called WOLFEN NINJA, just finished over at Deathland. The film is directed by Pearl Cheung and is obviously the same film as the one I have which is called WOLF DEVIL WOMAN in Hong Kong. But I was just wondering if this is the same version or a westernised version that differs from the HK print?? Does any of you know??
(and congrats to whoever outbid me <_< )

WOLF DEVIL WOMAN Hong Kong vcd

And it's really a shame this film hasn't received a proper dvd release. It's one of the wildest, craziest and most enjoyable Hong Kong films I've seen!!

You're right!!!

I just looked it up at the Hong Kong Movie Data Base (hkmdb) and there it is!! All these aka-titles!! I actually have this films!! I just didn't know it because my HK vcd is called MATCHING ESCORT. :lol:

http://hkmdb.com/db/movies/view.mhtml?id=9...display_set=eng

Thanks for the suggestion, Pete.

There are actually three films in the series:

WOLF DEVIL WOMAN

MATCHING ESCORT aka Wolf Devil Woman 2 / Venus the Ninja / Venus the Ninja Wolf / Wolfen Ninja

MIRACULOUS FLOWER aka Wolf Devil Woman 3 / Phoenix The Ninja

Jack, you're right about the trilogy. All tapes have Greek VHS releases. However just because there are VENUS THE NINJA and PHOENIX THE NINJA (exact titles on Greek VHS) I beleive this is the first one, WOLF DEVIL WOMAN.

By the way my congratulations for that MAGIC CURSE beta :)
I couldn't beat you on that (in fact I finnished third) :D

Really? If that's correct it's quite confusing because in the Hong Kong Movie Data Base the sequel is listed as being aka Wolfen Ninja.

About THE MAGIC CURSE:
I'm very exited about this purchase!!! Posted Image
I had been keeping an eye on that auction all week and just sat in the dark and waited, and waited, and waited. :ph43r:
Obviously I DID see that someone else had made a bid very early on but I was hoping no one else would find the auction since it was for a Betamax tape. I guess in the end there were one other bidder. What can I say... I just reeeealy wanted this and I never thought I'd find an original. I knew about the film cos Lars Jacobsen sent me a copy and, oh man, it's just such a wild film! I'm very happy about winning this (and buying it means I couldn't really make bids for Wolfen Ninja. I'm not made of money you know! :(

Here's the auction scan:

I don't know, Peter.

And here's another auction that I took part in at an early stage but which ended at the wrong side of 100 bucks:

Of course, you can get the film on HK vcd for 5 dollars and it's even subtitled (which this tape isn't). But I guess that's not what it's about :lol:
