Corpse Mania coming to get ya!!!

Hong Kong vcd

Yep, that's right; you heard it here first (unless you read it at Dvdmaniacs or on Amazon)!! The very enjoyable dark 1981 Hong Kong horror movie CORPSE MANIA is being released on dvd soon!!! (well, in October that is). It's coming out from Image in the US. I was about to air my worries about their fucking up previous releases by only supplying their dvd's with the wrong audio track (Mandarin instead of Cantonese) but in this case it really shouldn't be a worry as the correct soundtrack is the Mandarin anyway! The film is already out on a spiffy vcd from Celestial in HK and that one's only got the Mandarin dub. It was released in Hong Kong alongside another great, dark and gory horror movie; THE BOXER'S OMEN which unfortunately only had the Mandarin audio track when Image put it out on dvd (and in this case the correct audio is Cantonese). Anyway, if you're into dark horror movies then do yerself a favour and get it; it's great. Almost like a Chinese giallo murder mystery.
