Eureka Entertainment will release BURNING PARADISE, director Ringo Lam’s gothic horror infused martial arts epic, on Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK on 29 May 2023, presented as part of the Eureka Classics range.
The new release marks the first time the film has been available in the UK since the VHS era.
Presented on Blu-ray from a stunning 2K restoration of the original 35mm camera negative, the first print-run of 2000 Copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase, featuring new artwork by Darren Wheeling, and a Limited Edition Collector’s Booklet, featuring new writing by James Oliver.
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.
