NEW UK, US & CAN TITLE: Savage Guns: Four Classic Westerns Vol. 3 - Limited Edition Blu-Ray Arrow pre-order available - 55:00

Release date: December 11

"Maniacal outlaws thirsting for blood! Corrupt capitalists profiting from the suffering of the common folk! Desperate people pushed to violent revenge! The Italian western has never been grittier than in this quartet of later-period cult classics, in which the trademark cynicism of the genre escalates into the radical pessimism of the late 1960s / early 1970s world.

In Paolo Bianchini's I Want Him Dead (1968), American actor Craig Hill (The Bloodstained Shadow) stars as an ex-Confederate soldier who vows revenge after his sister is raped and murdered, in so doing setting him on a collision course with a dastardly plot to disrupt peace talks between the North and South. Next, in Edoardo Mulargia's El Puro (1969; a.k.a. The Reward's Yours... The Man's Mine), western icon Robert Woods (My Name is Pecos) gives arguably his greatest performance as a legendary gunfighter forced to emerge from hiding after the bounty hunters on his tail murder the tender-hearted barmaid (Rosalba Neri, Smile Before Death) who offered him a new life.

Then, in Mario Camus' Wrath of the Wind (1970), genre superstar Terence Hill (They Call Me Trinity) shows his darker side as an assassin who finds his conscience when he and his brother (Mario Pardo, Knife of Ice) are hired by a ruthless landholder (Fernando Rey, The French Connection) to kill the leaders of a growing labor movement. Finally, Fabio Testi (What Have You Done to Solange?) and Tomas Milian (Don't Torture a Duckling) star in Lucio Fulci's Four of the Apocalypse (1975), in which a quartet of misfits go from sharing the same jail cell to embarking on a savage odyssey that will lead to torture, rape and cannibalism. Preyed upon by a ruthless bandit, the foursome fight for their lives - until the time comes for revenge.

Four of the Italian western's hardest, cruelest, bloodiest classics erupt from the screen in this feature-packed box set from Arrow Films. Featuring dazzling High Definition restorations and a wealth of brand new bonus materials produced specially for this release, Savage Guns delivers - from both barrels!"

Release date: December 12

"THESE ARE THE ARMIES OF THE NIGHT.

In 1979, fresh from directing bare knuckle boxing movie Hard Times and supercool crime thriller The Driver, Walter Hill delivered his third stone cold classic in a row: The Warriors, a slam-bang, visually kinetic action movie that mixed a heightened comic-book sensibility with a timeless tale from ancient Greece and set them loose in the streets of modern America.

In New York the gangs outnumber the cops by 5-1. Together, they could rule the city. Gang-leader Cyrus has a dream to do just that and calls a summit. The gangs of New York gather in their thousands, Cyrus takes the stage. From somewhere in the crowd a shot rings out and Cyrus falls down dead. In the chaos that follows, a small gang from Coney Island - the Warriors - are blamed. Now everyone is out to get them. On foot, in enemy territory, can they make it through the night to get back across the city to the safety of home turf?

For all you boppers out there, for all you street people with an ear for the action... the iconic cult classic is back in a brand new 4K restoration approved by director Walter Hill. Can you dig it?"

  • Limited Edition packaging with reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Laurie Greasley
  • Double-sided fold-out poster featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Laurie Greasley

That warriors edition looks amazing....except Where's the TV cut or the deleted scenes that were in it? I mean yes it is inferior to the theatrical cut but I bet people would prefer tv version over hill's wtf directors cut.

Well, I believe we can rule out Conan (much wider), Ladyhawke (much thinner), Highlander, Sword and the Sorcerer (the double sword that if memory doesn't fail, shoots out!) and Excalibur (doesn't look like Terry English's work)... Looks like something out of Narnia (but lion on pommel)

(P.S. [Plug, as in Shameless]: I own English's prototype for Mordred's golden helmet in my collection. god I love that film)

P.S. #2 Ok, we can't figure out the movie based on the pictured sword, because googling the image we see it's a stock photo of a sword and is used in countless wallpapers and assorted articles. So all options are still on the table.

It's unlikely to be highlander (at least for uk anyway) since it wasn't that long ago studio canal released it.

Did that fulci film conquest feature swords in it or just glow in the dark arrows?
