Arrow Films is pleased to announce that Monday Sept. 24th will see the hugely influential Lady Snowblood films lovingly restored and released on Blu-ray for the very first time, anywhere in the world.
From legendary Japanese director Toshiya Fujita, the blood-splattered Samurai masterpieces will be available both as a Limited Edition Blu-ray SteelBook™ and a 3-disc Blu-ray & DVD Dual Format Set, the films are widely credited as the main inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill movies.
Originally adapted from Kazuo Kioke and Kzuo Kamimura’s manga manuscripts, Lady Snowblood and its sequel Love Song Of Vengeance tell the twisted tale of Yuki, a woman raised from birth for one terrible purpose… murder!
Played by the beautiful but vicious Meiko Kaji, Yuki sets out to maim those who raped her mother and left her rotting in a stinking women’s prison, where she would later die during childbirth. Trained in deadly fighting arts and masterful sword play, our new found heroin is cursed to wander the lands in pursuit of her targets, sated only by the crimson blood of those who stole her mother from her.
