Eureka Entertainment have unveiled Ringo Lam’s gothic horror infused martial arts epic Burning Paradise. Set to be released as part of the Eureka Classics range in its UK debut on 2K Restored Blu-ray from 29th May.
Director Ringo Lam’s (Wild Search, City on Fire) only film in the wuxia genre is also one his best and bloodiest.
Hunted by the Manchu government, a young Fok Sai-yuk is captured and sent to the Red Lotus Temple, where Shaolin monks are enslaved and viciously tortured by the sadistic warden Kung (Wong Kam Kong). Thrown into a pit of corpses and left to die, Fong survives and attempts to save his Shaolin brothers.
Produced by Tsui Hark, Burning Paradise is a dark fantasy epic, filled with shocking violence and incredible choreography. This will be the first time in the UK since the VHS era Burning Paradise with a blood-soaked special edition.
