Synopsis

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

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.
