Shadow of Death (1968, aka - Bayangan Ajal) * NEW

A super spy goes up against a criminal organization in a quest to uncover an ill-gotten treasure. The treasure map is divided into two halves, adding to the difficulty. This take-off on the James Bond craze featured Malasia secret agent, Jeffri Zain. During the 1960s, Shaw Brothers released several of their films in two versions -- one for the Chinese market and one for the Malay market. The Malay films would share some scenes with the HK version, but a number other scenes were replaced with scenes using Malaysian actors. This is one such rare film.

One victim's stomach swells, and when it's cut open, snakes/ leeches and centipedes pour out. As a side note, what makes this film so notorious is the demented extra who eats a number of live animals on camera -- an activity he reportedly enjoyed in real life, as well. See 'Princess and the Toxicant' for the original language version of the film.

Summons to Death (1967)

This Shaw Brothers classic is often compared to Dr. No -- and while this isn't exactly a spy film and there's no James Bond -- the style and concept of the two films are quite similar. An adventurer steals a treasure map, and gets mixed up with gangsters, pirates, killers and beautiful women. All involved are trying to find a buried treasure. Lots of fun in a super-cool, 1960s sort of way.

Three Supermen and the Mad Girl (1973, aka - Cilgin Kiz ve Uc Super Adam) * NEW

A secret criminal organization is lead by the devil, or at least by a guy in a devil outfit. They also employ a mad scientist who's created a super-cool robot, several bikini-clad female assassins, and an army of followers who wear green KKK outfits. Who knows what they're up to, but they do kidnap the heroine and tie her up naked, bondage-fetish style in their headquarters. The good guys -- three men with super powers (flight, impervious to bullets, etc.) and S's on their chests -- come to the rescue. The print is worn and washed out, but is watchable. (NS)

Patchwork film which combines footage of an eleven year old film, with newer footage -- in a mix-in-match style which was perfected by Godrey Ho. However, in the old footage, the heroes wear orange costumes with masks. While in the new scenes, they have red outfits with no masks, so mix-and-don't-match is more accurate. A team of super heroes deal with criminals invading the Olympic games. Meanwhile, a secret organization -- with a devil leader, a super-cool robot, some bikini-clad assassins, and followers who wear green KKK outfits -- is up to no good. Simply amazing! (NS)
