Your Window Into Hong Kong Cinema
Ha, yeah it's bizarre ! The Japanese are incredibly up front about splatter in their designs. Yeah, I remember this film from the VHS days, but I never saw it, even though it had a pretty good rep among gorehounds - if I'm remembering it rightly this one was quite splashy and was pretty much left intact by the BBFC. The UK VHS sleeve was designed by the artist Graham Humphreys who was responsible for a lot of memorable VHS sleeves from that era - the first two Evil Deads, Creepers (alternative cut of Argento's Phenomena), the great Elm Street quad, Return of the Living Dead, The Stuff, Vamp, Basket Case. There's a good montage of his sleeves here
Awesome poster! Stunningly cool.
