Riki-Oh's one of the best gore cult classics to come out of HK. I've seen it many times, and can't wait for a blu-ray release.

Robotrix is also an excellent recommendation, cheesy fun.

Does anyone have the Joy Sales remastered version from 2008? How's the picture quality compared to the Media Blasters NTSC Region 1 release?

I have the Joy Sales re-release (it's actually the third release I bought for this film ), but I don't own the Media Blasters release, so I can't help you with a comparison.
It looks nice though.

Would y'all believe I just got around to seeing this for the first time last night? Wow, what a crazy-ass flick! It's just one of those things that's managed to slip under my radar. I believe it was shown on Turner Classic Movies a year ago, and still didn't see it. It was only a poke around the bargain DVD bin while waiting in line at a used record store that I saw it for $1.99 and grabbed it.

Nothing more to add that hasn't already been said (and it turns out, I already own/have seen most of the films Funktion mentioned), just a great blend of over-the-top gore and surprisingly good kung-fu scenes. I do love that late 80s-early 90s era of Hong Kong cinema. Probably right up there with 70s era gritty movies (American and Italian, mostly) as my favorite period of filmmaking.
