If you check on the 88 Films website it lists the first letters of releases 5-8 of the upcoming 88 Asia titles. My guess for no 8 is Seeding of a Ghost.
Ki could be Killer Snakes?
One of the M's could be Mighty Peking Man.

Double dipping is not bad in this case because you're upgrading to a blu,and they look very nice from what I've seen so far.
Or don't you have a bd player?

I have a bluray player so can justify double dipping on the titles and the price for the 88 Films releases are very reasonable.

I do already own the Tokyo Shock bluray of 5 Elemental Ninjas and that looked stunning so be interesting to compare the 88 Films release.

Compared to some German and French Shaw blus, prices for the 88 releases are very reasonable. They also have some nice exclusive titles on blu coming up. And they're English friendly.

I still own the dvd of "Super Ninjas".

Interesting that depending on which Shaw film they release they will have a somewhat different target audience.
I mean Hex maybe won't appeal so much to people who buy House of Traps and the other way round.

I'm going to guess King Boxer for one of them, simply because the poster is shown during one of the extras on Hex.
