Arrow Video will release The Executioner Collection on blu-ray on Monday in the UK.
The Executioner series are martial arts action films from director Teruo Ishii.
Included in this collection are both The Executioner and The Executioner II: Karate Inferno from 1974.
I’m not too familiar with this genre but I’ve added a film trailer at the bottom of the page for those of you that love them.

Arrow don’t mention any restoration work only “High Definition Bluray (1080p) presentation” so I guess its buyer beware on this release.
