Next month 101 Films is set to release Edward Murphy’s Raw Force (1982) for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK. The film is a crazy, over-the-top mix of martial arts and horror, this sleazy gem stars exploitation greats Cameron Mitchell and Vic Diaz, and features everything from zombies to cannibal monks.

The release is loaded with extras, including a brand new commentary, check out …
