If you’re familiar with Terracotta, then you might be more familiar with the company’s place in the UK’s Asian Cinema niche as hosts to Terracotta Far East Film Festival, reportedly the biggest event of its kind in London. As of next week however, Terracotta will be stepping forward next week with distribution of its fresh new line of classic 80’s kung fu features in pristine high quality video with English dub with the release of the 1984 film, Hero Of Shaolin, starring Alexander Lo Rei.
A troop of monks from the Shaolin Temple embark on a mission to get the Golden Sutra to Tibet after the Shaolin Abbot is killed by their traitorous teacher. They are joined on their quest by a beautiful, female warrior – with aims to avenge her father’s death. They traverse forests and mountains on their mission, all the while fighting off deadly ninja assassins, vicious gangsters and even the undead.
The UK branch of the martial arts community is certainly one to embrace, so if kung fu cinema is your thing and you live in the area, then Terracotta is just the label you want to keep in mind. Head over to their respective distribution and festival websites to learn more about the club, and feel free to pre-order the DVD right now at Amazon UK before its availability on November 10, 2014!
