  • Notes:
    Unless noted otherwise, extras are in English with optional English subtitles.
    The English SDH tracks for the Cantonese and Mandarin tracks only transcribe the English dialogue. The English subtitle tracks only translate the Chinese dialogue. The English SDH track for the export version transcribes all dialogue but is only selectable via remote while there are menu options for the other versions.
    The Mandarin and English export have been reconstructed using the Hong Kong version as the base, resulting in some inconsistences with the original Mandarin and export versions including shots that ran longer in the Hong Kong version that were originally shortened in the other versions but remain here.
    Comes with a reversible cover in a hard slipcase/slipcover combo designed by Tony Stella & Earl Kessler Jr. and includes a 40-page perfectbound book featuring essays by film programmer Pearl Chan, author and martial arts historian Grady Hendrix, and filmmaker/fan Simon Barrett.
    Limited to 6,000 copies and only available at Vinegar Syndrome.
