[in Greek accent] Welcome my friend!!

I spoke to Miltos the other day and he asked me if I wanted to admin. one or two of the old sections and obviously I said: 'yaaah, weeell, Miltos, lissen old chap, I collect Indo flicks and old dark Hong Kong horror flicks so how about an Asian section?'

And here it is! Our brand new Asian section. So [in Bela Lugosi accent] I biiid you all velkaame!! Now, wipe your feet before you come in. You're not in Cinehound land anymore. You're in my domain! I'm king and you better behave!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Now, crank up the stereo and let's have some fun.

Hopefully someone will come around and show off his Shaw Brothers horror video collection. There were a couple of SB tapes by Ocean Shores (such as Seeding of a Ghost),how about this one?:
I have searched this and nothing come up,not even 1 review.

There was a little bit of talk about it over at dvdmaniacs but you're right, no review. I think it's become a trend to be into kung-fu cinema and new Jap/Korean horror and unfortunately people overlook old, dark HK horror.

While we're awaiting reviews and posts about Asian flicks in this section you might wanna take a look at this one-page site that was supposed to be the beginning of a Hong Kong film fanzine. It never occurred tho and all that actually got done was this page. Update every blue moon! :rolleyes:

Ahh, October's been a good month so far! Cool new DVDs. SEEDING OF A GHOST (as if I hadn't mentioned that a 100 times), BEWITCHED (Boxer's Omen prequel), RETURN OF THE DEAD (Enchanted Shadow sequel), MYSTICS IN BALI (re-mastered ntsc re-release), ANGEL (aka Iron angels), MY HEART IS THAT ETERNAL ROSE, HELL HAS NO BOUNTRY, + MAGIC OF SPELL (VCD only)!!! Okay, a couple may be September releases but I didn't get them till October and since this is my section THAT'S what counts! :lol: :lol:
Expect reviews along the way.

Hey hep-cats,
Another exiting piece of news in Hong Kong horrors: Image in the US are going to put out CORPSE MANIA on DVD! They're also putting out SEEDING OF A GHOST (which, if memory serves me well, is a film I think I've mentioned in here before :D ). Both films are already out from Celestial but in the case of CORPSE MANIA it's a VCD release only. Great news. There's no release date as of yet.

CORPSE MANIA is best described as a Hong Kong giallo!

Unfortunately it seems that CORPSE MANIA and SEEDING OF A GHOST may very well be Mandarin only DVDs which is unfortunate as the original language for these films is Cantonese. The Celestial DVD of SEEDING has both dialects and the VCD of CORPSE has both as well (and pretty good picture quality).

Apparently Image (the US video company) has only bought the rights for the Mandarin track - just like they did with BOXER'S OMEN (which has both tracks on the VCD as well). What a bummer if this is how it's going to be!!! :angry:

Jack what have you done here old boy? ASIAN EXPLOITATION CINEMA has really kicked off. If this grows any bigger I'm afraid I'll have to bribe you to end this section, you've grabbed all our readers!  :D

Yeah, soon everyone will forget about Turkish cinema and Onar will start releasing Indo and HK films, ha ha (joking, of course <_< ). Thanks, Ayman. Oh, and I just watched BŁyŁ last night. Pretty good.

You traitor :lol:

For having turned 'Asian' or for submitting to a Turko flick while being on an Asian trek? :lol: :lol:

Hey fellas,
I'd just like to mention that the new fully uncut German version of RUN AND KILL has finally come out!!!

If you're not familiar with this film but if you like gory HK horror flicks rated Cat. III then this is not something you wanna miss out on! Simon Yam being at his most psychotic self (movie 'self' I hope, LOL)!! So far the only way of seeing this uncut is the French DVD which has no English subs. The HK DVD is cut.

It's released as a double bill with another old HK nasty INTRUDER (which I don't think I've watched before but Andras made a post over at Asian Dvd Guide saying it's excellent).

Spannick mentioned (also at ADG) that it won't be available at German Amazon but you can get it from D&T (in Austria):
