'Lady Snowblood' set to hack up our screens!

On September 24th Arrow Films will be unleashing Lady Snowblood and Lady Snowblood: Love Song of Vengeance on a couple of great looking packs. First up is the 3 Disc Dual Format Edition (pictured above) which will contain the Blu-ray and DVD, and then there is the rather lush looking Steelbook Blu-ray edition (pictured below). Get ready for some hacking and slashing, and expect a review from me in the near future.

Arrow Films is pleased to announce that Monday September 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 two blood-splattered Samurai masterpieces are credited as the main inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill series.

Beautifully restored on Blu-ray for the very first time anywhere in the world, these special Arrow reissues are a real visual treat – a must-have for any self-respecting high definition film fan.
