    Chang Cheh is recognised as perhaps the greatest martial arts director of all time and 1977's THE BRAVE ARCHER provided him with one of his biggest box office successes. Reinventing the kung-fu formula in the era of Bruce Lee knock-offs, this period-set bout of fist-to-fist fighting and swashbuckling action used the hit Cantonese novel The Legend of the Condor Heroes as its basis. With a whimsical sense of 'old China', THE BRAVE ARCHER undoubtedly paved the way for such later wuxia blockbusters as ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA and CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON by weaving a lavish costume-packed story of rival kung fu schools pitting their best fighters against a series of trials and tribulations. Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Alexander Fu Sheng (HEROES SHED NO TEARS) and Ti Lung (A BETTER TOMORROW), the action comes furious and fast, the atmosphere is so strong you can almost taste the Far Eastern fog and the battles are some of the most mesmerising ever produced! Leading to two sequels THE BRAVE ARCHER is one of the standout Shaw Brothers adventures and 88 Films is thrilled to bring this classic to UK shelves in glorious HD, accompanied by a Bey Logan commentary and booklet from Asia-based academic Calum Waddell.

    Glad to see 88 keeping up the pace with these releases. Oily Maniac is a day one purchase! Might buy Bride From Hell too, but I haven't even watched my DVD yet.

    Btw, 88 films is also releasing FLYING GUILLOTINE AND THE BRAVE ARCHER on blu ray as well. I'm glad about THE FLYING GUILLOTINE since the TVP German isn't English friendly. I really enjoyed Chen Kuan-tai's performance in that one as the disillusioned Imperial court assassin.

    BRIDE FROM HELL was a middling effort as far as SBs horror but I'll probably end up buying just to keep supporting these releases. Just as long as they don't keep fucking these releases up though -- I heard 88films fixed the audio issues in the later releases of SEEDING OF A GHOST but haven't confirmed it.

    What was the problem with Seeding's audio?

    Supposed to be Cantonese but it's Mandarin even though the case states Cantonese audio.

    Ah, Thanks. They'll never see the light of day, then
