Kiai-Kick’s Holiday Gift Guide 2016: Arrow Video!
Okay, so Arrow is a company with a LOT of old school films, some box sets and many more items of interest for B and C movie lovers of all kind, but there are two Blu Ray films I just gotta point out revolving around one person: Sho Kosugi.
Pray For Death
Pray for Death is one of my favorite films of his, and when you add in a ninja bicycle, you’ve struck gold! You can read my review of the film here, but to see it in a pristine blu-ray format is an added bonus, with some pretty decent extras, and Arrow has it!
- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation from a transfer of original elements by MGM

- Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
- Brand new interview with star Sho Kosugi
- Archive interview and Ninjutsu demonstration with Kosugi from the film’s New York premiere
- Original Theatrical Trailer
- Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Matthew Griffin
Rage Of Honor
Yeah. More Sho Kosugi here, but not nearly as good as Enter the Ninja or Pray for Death. It has its moments, but it’s still a very, very silly movie. I’ll be reviewing it soon, but if you need that extra Sho Kosugi fix, or are just a completist, then I can recommend this blu ray, but as a movie? A double feature with Miami Connection along with Bourbon, Vodka and pizza will make one hell of a movie night!
