"They threw an army at him, and he threw it back ... a piece at a time!" The Shogun Assassin sequel Lightning Swords of Death features awkwardly dubbed dialogue and slashing swords supreme as the wandering samurai Ogami Itto (Tomisaburo Wakayama) goes up against the Yakuza to save the life of a prostitute. What you need to know is this: When you go up against Ogami ... well, to quote the trailer again, "raise a kung-fu fist against Ogami Itto, and he'll chop it off!" Based on the classic Japanese comic Lone Wolf and Cub, a huge influence on Sin City creator Frank Miller, this classic of Asian grindhouse comes to our screens courtesy of Cinema Overdrive, which offers this with some classic trailers for just $5 starting at 8 p.m.—along with a look at their fall lineup.
