WOLF GUY Howls Online With A New Blu-Ray Promo From Arrow Video

Wolf Guy (2-Disc Special Edition) [Blu-ray + DVD]
Once a rare classic never released outside of Japan, Yamaguchi Kazuhiro's 1975 action horror sci-fi martial arts romp, Wolf Guy is getting the pristine treatment it deserves at Arrow Video. A new promo is now online ahead of its release following ticketed event screenings throughout the U.S. and the U.K. and with 2-disc Blu-Ray availability set for May 23, 2017.
Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba is a martial arts "manimal" in the ultra-70's, 100% bizarre mixture of horror, action and sci-fi that is Wolf Guy, one of the rarest and most sought-after cult films produced by Japan's Toei Studio. Based on a manga by Kazumasa Hirai (creator of 8 Man), and never before released outside of Japan, it's a genre film classic waiting to be discovered and a completely unclassifiable trip into phantasmagoric funk. 
Chiba stars as Akira Inugami, the only survivor of a clan of ancient werewolves who relies on his supernatural powers to solve mysterious crimes. After a series of bloody killings perpetrated by an unseen force, Inugami uncovers a conspiracy involving a murdered cabaret singer, corrupt politicians, and a plot by the J-CIA to harvest his blood in order to steal his lycanthropic powers! At the same time, Inugami also discovers the truth behind his family heritage, and that he may not be the last of his kind. 
Directed by B-movie genius Kazuhiko Yamaguchi (Sister Streetfighter, Wandering Ginza Butterfly, Karate Bear Fighter), Wolf Guy truly is one-of-a-kind, with Chiba in full effect as the part-man, part-wolf, all-karate action hero and a collection of familiar 1970's Toei actors in support. Violence, action, nudity, real surgical footage, and a psychedelic musical score all work together to create an unforgettable trip to the heights of Japanese cinematic weirdness.
Wolf Guy would be right up anyone's alley who loves action cinema and Asian genre titles, and the special features look adequate and promising, as well as the footage of a young Chiba tearing through villains on screen. Check it out and pre-order your U.S. copy today!
