Pray for Death | Blu-ray (Arrow Video)

RELEASE DATE: March 8, 2016

Ninja film fanatics, brace yourself! Arrow Video has just announced their Blu-ray release for the 1985 cult martial arts classic, Pray for Death, starring Sho Kosugi (Ninja III: The Domination). The movie is slicin’ its way onto Blu-ray on March 8, 2016!

In Pray for Death, Japanese Restauranteur Akira (Kosugi) has taken his wife and two boys to the United States in search of a better life. But their slice of the American Dream is quickly soured when they fall foul of a group of vicious jewellery thieves. Unfortunately for the bad guys, they didn’t count on Akira being a secret black ninja.

The samurai sword of vengeance falls swift and hard in this classic slice of ’80s ninja action from director Gordon Hessler (Rage of Honor), culminating in an action-packed showdown with a bodycount worthy of Commando.

Special Features:

– High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation from a transfer of original elements by MGM of the unrated version
– 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
– Collector’s booklet featuring an extract from Sho Kosugi’s upcoming biography

    I’m going to try to own all the kosugi Ninja films on blu. It would be Seppuku, if I don’t do him this service.

    I think this is one of the few Arrow releases that won’t be coming out in the UK (another company called 101 Films is set to release it over here). Does anyone know if Arrow’s American releases are Region A or Region Free?

    • I believe they’re Region A. Sorry for the late reply.

      • DougWonnacott says:

        That’s unfortunate (for me). Appreciate your reply. There’s a few upcoming releases I’d like but they have a different distributer in the UK. Prey for Death, Rage & Honor and Black Mama, White Mama. I might get Black Mama, White Mama anyway as it’s dual format, I can play multi regional dvds but not blu rays.
