Filled with memorable set pieces, iconic characters and violent action, this series more than lives up to its reputation as a pinnacle of Japanese exploitation cinema whose musings on the meaning of honour in a lawless world still resonate today. In White Heaven In Hell alone, Ogami Itt' kills 150 people onscreen, the highest body count for a single character in a single film in cinema history.
In America, the first two Lone Wolf instalments were re-edited into the legendary Shogun Assassin, the film that single-handedly created legions of new fans of Japanese action cinema upon its release. Originally prosecuted as a video nasty in the 1980s, this hugely influential thrill-ride is presented here along with the original Lone Wolf and Cub series, gorgeously remastered in their original aspect ratio.
- Freshly remastered, anamorphic, original aspect ratio transfers
- Newly translated optional English subtitles
- Original Japanese theatrical trailers for each film
- Liner notes for each film by Japanese film scholar Tom Mes
