Blu-ray Art Debut – Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky

Post Thumb:


If you’re anything like us, you’re salivating over the notion of seeing every head-crushing, bone-snapping, intestine-strangling moment of Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky on Blu-ray and in high definition. That being said, we have a look at the artwork for ya! Dig it!

From the Press Release: Media Blasters Inc. and their Tokyo Shock label are proud to announce the North American Blu-ray release of THE STORY OF RICKY, the legendary Hong Kong splatter-piece written and directed by Lam Nai-choi based on the deranged Japanese manga RIKI-OH! For the first time, RICKY has been re-mastered in vivid blood-red high-definition and will be re-issued on DVD and premiered on Blu-ray on September 27th!

Now, the legion of RICKY connoisseurs will be able to savor every head-crush, fist-thrust, and dismemberment on Blu-ray! New supplementary materials include an exclusive on-camera tribute and appreciation of RICKY by HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN director Jason Eisener.

THE STORY OF RICKY is a 1991 cult favorite Hong Kong film that liberally pours on the action and gore to tell the stark story of a dystopian society in the near future where justice is fickle and privatized prisons dole out a daily diet of extreme punishment to the (mostly) innocent inmates. Enter RICKY, played by Hong Kong action star Fan Siu-Wong (YIP MAN 1 & II, Donnie Yen’s upcoming THE MONKEY KING), who wields superhuman strength and has little tolerance and respect for authority. Ricky literally punches, kicks, and stomps his way through a human and inhuman obstacle course of carnage to regain freedom for himself and his fellow inmates.
