Beautiful Thrilling Bloody Sword print on Blu-Ray complete with Tars Tarkas commentary!

Do you like swords? Do you like thrills? Do you like boutique Blu-Ray companies and freshly scanned 2K prints of obscure Taiwanese fantasy Snow White films filled with monsters and mayhem? Sure, we all do, but now you can get all those great flavors in one simple package with the Thrilling Bloody Sword Blu-Ray from Gold Ninja Video! I’ve seen the print, and it is freaking beautiful! Much much better than the blurry and washed out VHS and tv rips that are circulating around the web, ones that we ourselves used in our review of Thrilling Sword way back in the long long time ago. And how have I seen the print before the official release? Because I’m in the official release! Yes, Thrilling Sword has a commentary track with yours truly, Tars Tarkas, giving color commentary and interesting factoids along with Gold Ninja Video founder Justin Decloux! Somehow, I found time to get this done despite having a toddler running around demanding all my time, because this release is just awesome and Thrilling Sword/Thrilling Bloody Sword/神劍動山河 deserves a much wider audience! You got seven generals shrunk down to small size (sometimes they even have all seven actors in the scene, but usually not), a queen giving birth to a ball of flesh, a guy turned into a bear, Satan, giant monsters, frog men, definitely not Rodan, totally not King Ghidorah, unsafe flames, trippy visuals, a guy with a butt on his head, phantom limbs, and much much more! This is a movie that when you describe it to people, they don’t believe you! Now they can not believe you but in 2K! It’s a steal at only $20! Plus, you can always rag on me forever for whatever minor error I made in the commentary track! But I guarantee it is 99% correct.

Just look at the beauty of it!

ORDER IT TODAY! Limited to 800 copies!

NOTE: THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. BLU-RAYS WILL START SHIPPING ON NOVEMBER 22, 2021

Watch a Teaser Here

A NEW 2K SCAN OF THE ONLY SURVIVING 35MM PRINT

DOUBLE NOTE: If you selected the Subscription Perk from the Gold Ninja Video Indiegogo campaign this will be included, so you don’t need to order it, and it will ship when it becomes available.

There’s nothing like THRILLING BLOODY SWORD, a head-spinning slice of Taiwanese psychotronic cinema that builds a fantasy action movie out of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, impossible fight scenes, and a cavalcade of monsters that include a cyclops, a pterodactyl and Satan himself!

A comet impregnates a queen. She gives birth to a fleshy egg. In disgust, the king tosses the egg in the river. Seven little people stumble onto the egg. They stab it with a knife and find a cute baby inside – who grows up to be a beautiful princess. One day, she runs into a prince fighting a multi-headed dragon, and of course, the two royals fall in love. Unfortunately, a group of dastardly wizards want to keep them apart, and they’ll use every creature at their disposal to do it!

Previously available in only a washed-out video transfer, Gold Ninja Video is proud to present this super colourful film in a new 2K Scan taken from the only-surviving 35mm print commissioned exclusively for this release.

In Mandarin with burnt-in English subtitles.

Lifetime hopes you don’t get Murdered at 17!

Murdered at 17 Lifetime

Murder at 17 was the case at 17 and the case at 17 was me at 17!


Don’t you hate it when you have violent rage fits and then a charismatic stranger becomes an obsessed stalker and you may or may not be murdering people, which will totally get in the way of cheerleading? We’ve all been there, which is why Lifetime’s latest flick Murdered at 17 speaks to all of us! It’s part of the ____ at 17 universe, which means it is written by Lifetime’s #1 awesome story-teller, Christine Conradt! That alone guarantees this will be a rocking good time, and that’s before we deal with what actually happens in the movie! Be there for great Lifetime fun!

Pretty and popular, seventeen-year-old Brooke Emerson is the envy of her classmates–and even some of her closest friends. But while she seems to have it all, Brooke has never felt so lost. Ever since she sustained a head injury during a cheerleading stunt the previous year, she’s suffered from a disorder that causes her to fly into uncontrollable, sometimes violent rages. As hard as she tries to keep it together, she finds herself in danger of jeopardizing her seemingly perfect life. It isn’t until Brooke meets Jake, a handsome and charismatic stranger, that she feels like she’s found someone who not only understands her, but accepts her for who she is. As tempting as it is to get swept up in the romance, she can’t help but feel like something in their relationship isn’t quite right. When her best friend is brutally murdered, Brooke has no choice but to depend on her new love…especially because she’s worried that she might be the killer.

Murdered at 17 stars Cristine Prosperi (Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack), Blake Burt (Pitch Perfect 2), Susan Walters (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son), and Emily Galley (Killing Mommy)

story by Lifetime Queen Christine Conradt (who also wrote the screenplay), Gemma Holdway (I Didn’t Kill My Sister), and Cyndi Pass (The Stepdaughter). It’s directed by Curtis Crawford (Killing Mommy)

Murdered at 17 premieres Sunday, July 8th on Lifetime!

A sperm donor comes collecting on Lifetime’s Killer Single Dad!

Killer Single Dad Lifetime

Me after watching 24 hours of Lifetime movies!


Of all the upcoming Lifetime movies this summer, Killer Single Dad has the most awesomely insane premise to explain to other people. A guy who donated sperm is now collecting all the children he sired and will kill anyone who gets in his way! It’s like reverse spermjacking…wombjacking if you will! This plot is amazing and promises a creepy, suspenseful Lifetime gold star movie that will pull out all the stops and then keep going!

Newly single Jennifer meets single dad Garrett at her daughter’s preschool. She’s swayed by his charm but in the dark about his goals. Garrett is really a serial sperm donor, now determined to kidnap all of the children he’s sired and unite them all to one big happy family.

Killer Single Dad stars Caitlyn Black (Wyatt Earp’s Revenge), Cameron Jebo (Power Rangers Megaforce), Lily Rains, and Victoria Barabas. It’s story is by Ken Sanders (Teenage Bank Heist), with a screenplay by Daniel West (Psycho Wedding Crasher), and directed by Robert Malenfant (California Schemin)

Killer Single Dad premieres Sunday, July 1st on Lifetime!

Misery is a Killer Ending on Lifetime!

Killer Ending Lifetime

The killer is now standing on her head while drawing threats in lipstick, amazing!


Writing can be dangerous because writers are always picking up murderous obsessive fans. It has to be true, that’s why there are so many movies about it! Killer Ending is the latest film to feature a writer with an obsessive fan, this one who desires to copy the crimes in her crime novel, but with the writer’s own daughter! Dun dun DUN! Oh, Lifetime!

Agatha Sayers best-selling novel becomes her worst nightmare when her daughter is abducted in a copycat scenario tangled with an obsessive assistant intent on stealing her identity.

Killer Ending stars Emmanuelle Vaugier (Cerberus), Chelsea Hobbs (Confessions of a Go-Go Girl), Kayla Wallace, and Woody Jeffreys. It’s written and directed by Christie Will Wolf (A Cookie Cutter Christmas), who has always produced high quality stuff!

It also seems to be another case of Lifetime having shown a movie already but didn’t give it enough fanfare so is now pretending it is premiering again! So in any event, Killer Ending airs Saturday, June 30th on Lifetime!
