Eureka Entertainment is set to release GOLGO 13, the 1973 action classic directed by Junya Sat? (The Bullet Train) starring Ken Takakura as Takao Saito’s deadly assassin. Presented as part of the Eureka Classics range in its UK debut on Blu-Ray, from a stunning 2K restoration. Available from 17th July 2023, the first print run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase and Collector’s Booklet.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
