    I always say you have to watch a film yourself to see if you like it. Suicide mentions weirdo gore scenes but there was very little of that. Worst for me was the cop out ending. I'm a huge fan of Shaw Brothers and Asian films in general but this one just disappointed.

    The Chinese back catalog horror genre is completely new to me. Picked up Seeding Of A Ghost based solely on the cover art, which I thought was phenomenally creepy-looking. I'm sure the film will turn out to be some really weird, fucked-up movie with very little actual horror lol. If I'm even remotely impressed by this I'll look into grabbing the other three.

    Let us know what you think. I'm in the same boat and have never seen these movies before but think the covers look pretty creepy and weird. I might have to see if I can find them online to watch first before committing to a purchase.

    DVD Beaver reviews Killer Constable: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film6/blu-ray_reviews_75/killer_constable_blu-ray.htm

    "Killer Constable is superior Wushu. It is one of the better realized martial arts films with strong plots points, great characters and more. I knew of the reputation of Killer Constable yet I was still very positively surprised by my viewing. I wish I could watch it again for the first time and will definitely revisit in the future. The 88 Films Blu-ray provides an excellent, and appreciated, a/v presentation with the commentary and booklet adding further value. This is easy to put in the 'must-own' category for lovers of the genre as well as any world-cinema fans - it's that good! Very strongly recommended!"

    DVD Beaver reviews Five Element Ninjas: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film6/blu-ray_reviews_76/five_element_ninjas_blu-ray.htm

    "Five Elements Ninjas is delightfully over-the-top. It loaded with action and some uncharacteristic gore. Martial Arts fans should love this pace and well-choreographed fight scenes. The 88 Films Blu-ray provides a pretty sweet a/v presentation with a valuable commentary. I'm not crazy about the cover but was genuinely impressed with the film and my HD viewing. I think it should be strongly considered - excellent value at the price offered."

    Excited about Black Magic 2. I'm not into martial arts movies very much, but like I mentioned before I really love the Shaw Brothers horror stuff. I actually just ordered Bride From Hell and Bewitched last night, I hope Boxer's Omen and Corpse Mania come out from them soon.

    Same here... mine shipped a few days ago, along with Blood Harvest.

    The ASA Slipcover is definitely sold out now, they've posted low stock for the last few days. Last night they had where there were 6 copies left, and those surely went fast.

    I got the Blood Harvest one last week but haven't had the chance to watch it yet even though I've seen the movie already on dvd. Do you know if BH is truly uncut or not Kat?

    I was holding out for Black Magic 2 to come in stock before ordering, so I guess I missed out on Alice with the slipcover. Oops.

    Yeah, that one went fast probably because no North American release is in site yet.

    I believe it is supposed to be uncut, or at least it passed uncut through the BBFC.
