'The Guillotines' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Mon Apr 22, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Swords will fly in this Hong Kong action flick slashing its way to Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA is preparing 'The Guillotines' for Blu-ray on August 13.

During the Manchurian-ruled Qing Dynasty, Emperor Yong Zheng established a secret assassination squad known as the Guillotines to eliminate all who opposed him. Once heavily favored by the Emperor, the Guillotines are deemed expendable once Emperor Qian Long ascends to the throne and adopts Western ideas and technology. To consolidate his power under a new regime, the Emperor continues to use the Guillotines to persecute the conquered Han Chinese in a reign of terror and oppression.

Specs and supplements have not been revealed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.

You can find the latest specs for 'The Guillotines' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under August 13.
