[in Greek accent] Welcome my friend!!

I spoke to Miltos the other day and he asked me if I wanted to admin. one or two of the old sections and obviously I said: 'yaaah, weeell, Miltos, lissen old chap, I collect Indo flicks and old dark Hong Kong horror flicks so how about an Asian section?'

And here it is! Our brand new Asian section. So [in Bela Lugosi accent] I biiid you all velkaame!! Now, wipe your feet before you come in. You're not in Cinehound land anymore. You're in my domain! I'm king and you better behave!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Now, crank up the stereo and let's have some fun.

Hopefully someone will come around and show off his Shaw Brothers horror video collection. There were a couple of SB tapes by Ocean Shores (such as Seeding of a Ghost),how about this one?:

I have searched this and nothing come up,not even 1 review.

There was a little bit of talk about it over at dvdmaniacs but you're right, no review. I think it's become a trend to be into kung-fu cinema and new Jap/Korean horror and unfortunately people overlook old, dark HK horror.

Surprising isn't it as these days You can find dozens of revs on any given obscure French crapola that gets released by Mondo Macabro (sorry). I was making capsules on ADG (look up the SB thread) but I wanted to see at least screenshots from this damn movie!

While we're awaiting reviews and posts about Asian flicks in this section you might wanna take a look at this one-page site that was supposed to be the beginning of a Hong Kong film fanzine. It never occurred tho and all that actually got done was this page. Update every blue moon! :rolleyes:

Ahh, October's been a good month so far! Cool new DVDs. SEEDING OF A GHOST (as if I hadn't mentioned that a 100 times), BEWITCHED (Boxer's Omen prequel), RETURN OF THE DEAD (Enchanted Shadow sequel), MYSTICS IN BALI (re-mastered ntsc re-release), ANGEL (aka Iron angels), MY HEART IS THAT ETERNAL ROSE, HELL HAS NO BOUNTRY, + MAGIC OF SPELL (VCD only)!!! Okay, a couple may be September releases but I didn't get them till October and since this is my section THAT'S what counts! :lol: :lol:
Expect reviews along the way.

Hey hep-cats,
Another exiting piece of news in Hong Kong horrors: Image in the US are going to put out CORPSE MANIA on DVD! They're also putting out SEEDING OF A GHOST (which, if memory serves me well, is a film I think I've mentioned in here before ). Both films are already out from Celestial but in the case of CORPSE MANIA it's a VCD release only. Great news. There's no release date as of yet.

CORPSE MANIA is best described as a Hong Kong giallo!
