    By the way, I like to know if all the Shaw Bros Region 3 DVDs in the market are uncut. I'd recommend "Black Magic", bloody and violent. I haven't seen the DVD yet, wonder if it's cut or not?

    Fist of the White Lotus.

    You'll shit your pants when Pai-Mei rips out your eyeballs.

    I don't think there's any blood in it though. Awesome KungFu though. For blood, I'd recommend Bruce Lee's "Fists of Fury". I think it's an ok movie but shit, there's blood everywhere. I was a bit confused at first as I've never seen that in a Bruce Lee flick. It's a rediculous movie now that I think about it.

    There's one scene where this dude is punched right through a wall leaving a Wyle E Coyote outline of himself on it. It has to be seen to be be believed.

    If you recommend Shogun Assasin, you may also want to recommend the new Lone Wolf and Cub DVDs by AnimEigo since Shogun Assasin is nothing more than the first 2 films edited together. The best way to view these beautiful films is the way the director intended. I can almost gaurantee that you'll want the whole series once you get a look at the first two.

    Master of the Flying Guillotine, I don't hesitate on reccomending this, look it up, you won't be disappointed. And I have to say Shogun Assassin is a horrible fucking film its not worth your time. Track down the original Lone Wolf movies as they are truly a dazzling cinematic experience

    Two Champions of Shaolin is nice and bloody. A dude's balls get ripped off.

    Human Lanterns by the Shaw Bros has a decent mix of blood and good kung fu. You may wince a little as the bad guy peels the skin off his victims.

    Saw One Armed Boxer VS The Flying Guillotine now... so much fun!
    Ya, saw about half of those Lone Wolf and Cub films too... the second one is the best so far. :)

    you're gonna need some mantis style to help round out your collection, check out Shaolin Mantis... and definitely get Boxer from Shantung.

    I can't wait to see Boxer From Shantung... me hearing there be lotsa axe fights and stuff in that. :) :) :)
    Intimate Confessions of a Chinese Courtesan is supposed to have quite the good ending. I'm hoping for the best. Checking around... lotsa people find this one to be one of the better Shaw films ever made. :)
