The never ending YUKARI OSHIMA search

Trying to get hold of EVERY Yukari Oshima film ever made is more time consuming than trying to pick lice off a bum's bum. But last night I managed to get hold of one that I wasn't even really aware of (well, I was a bit; Someone told me about it but I looked out the window and said "yeah yeah"). I thiink it's one of the films she made in the Philippines with her hubby Phillip Ko. The title is LETHAL COMBAT, also released in Australia as Lethal Combat: Techno Warriors 2 (as an unrelated sequel to another Phillip Ko film called, well, TECHNO WARRIORS and also Computer Hero). The DVD I'll be getting is from Thailand (fullscreen + English dub).

Cast (from the seller's page): Darren Shahlavi, Kwang-su Lee, Yukari Ôshima, Monsour Del Rosario, Phillip Ko, Thorsten Nickel.


  1. I must own this! Thanks for the heads up!!

  2. Jack, what Oshima movies are you still after ?. Have you got The Avenging Quartet ?.

  3. I've got that one, thanks, Paul. Which ones am I after? Uh, well I'm rarely so organised that I actually have a LIST but just grab the stuff whenever I stumble over it (or get a scent of it, lol). I'll see if I can come up with a list and post later.
