This month’s prize pack feature an action-packed wuxia classic from director King Hu, a powerful action-thriller starring Christopher Walken; an intense and shocking thriller from the Masters of Horror Stephen King and George A. Romero; and five films from the uncompromising American director Samuel Fuller.
The final film in King Hu‘s “Inn Trilogy”, and the follow-up to his highly-acclaimed A Touch of Zen, The Fate of Lee Khan once again shows the master filmmaker’s impeccable talent in creating drama out of a single setting. An espionage thriller with a unique wuxia twist and shades of Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, the film chronicles a tense showdown between warriors on opposing sides of a civil war in a rural inn.
The Dogs of War is a spectacular adventure that brilliantly captures the horror – and glory – of war. Academy Award winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter, Pulp Fiction) is a brutal mercenary who must fight the ultimate battle – against his own conscience – in this powerful action thriller with a heart-thumping tempo.
Adapted from the bestselling novel, The Dark Half is an intense and shocking thriller. Masters of horror Stephen King (IT, The Shining) and George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) have created a gripping, creepy, frightening film that shocks and thrills, with a climax that stands up as one of the craziest of both King and Romero’s careers. Featuring an intelligent screenplay and first-rate cast, including Oscar winner Timothy Hutton, The Dark Half will keep you captivated to the chilling end.
A towering figure of American cinema, Samuel Fuller was a master of the B-movie, a pulp maestro whose iconoclastic vision elevated the American genre film to new heights. After the major success of The Steel Helmet, Fuller was put under contract by Twentieth Century Fox. Over a six-year period, Fuller would produce some of the best work of his career, an uncompromising series of masterpieces spanning multiple genres that would establish the director as a true auteur, whose influence continues to be felt today. Fuller at Fox, Five Films 1951-1957 features five films from this fruitful period, all presented from stunning restorations.
