Thread: 88 Films Releasing Hex - 88 Asia Line

  1. #111
    I'd be remiss if I failed to mention the passing of Hon Kwok-choi who died yesterday at 69 due to lung cancer. He had an extensive filmography as an actor but also dabbled as a producer and director. I was just watching CRAZY HORSE, INTELLIGENT MONKEY the other day and thinking how much I enjoyed the comedic talents of Hon Kwok-choi. RIP.

I believe they are up to vol 7 now but vol 8, 9, & 10 have been announced:

    SNAKE IN THE MONKEY'S SHADOW





    KUNG FU STRONGMAN


    18 JADE ARHATS
    I've been eyeballing these for while, If the line continues I need to start buying some of them as they are limited to 1000 pieces. There are about 5 I would buy but probably have to wait till next month.

    "Our 88 Asia range goes from strength to strength and we are proud of the fact that we are the only UK label dedicated to the magic of the Shaw Brothers in glorious HD! Even better is pulling out some truly left field surprises - and if you have been lapping up the Shaw horror titles then 2018 will see the BluRay premiere of 1970's gender bending supernatural spook show THE ENCHANTING GHOST!!!"

    Still waiting on Teako's book to come out. I thought it would've been out already but last I've heard, it's in the final stages and at the editor at the moment. Hopefully, it will come out early next year.

    Something is off about the cover art? Also, 88Films has the 18th title in 88Asia line release listed with the letters GH -- any idea what title that might be? GHOST EYES?

    Ooooh yes, I've been following his FB posts and I am so happy someone is writing a book on him in English. Judging by his posts he put a lot of research into it. Can't wait.
