DAY OF THE PANTHER (OZPLOITATION CLASSICS)
Martial-arts expert, Jason Blade (Edward John Stazak) goes after a criminal gang and its boss, who were responsible for the death of his partner.
Shot on location in Hong Kong and Australia, DAY OF THE PANTHER and its sequel, STRIKE OF THE PANTHER, explode from the screen in a flurry of bloody fists, spiked bats, nunchucks and mullets! Packed with dangerous stunts and muscle cars smoking it up on suburban Perth streets, DAY and STRIKE are a double-bill of rarely seen Ozploitation mayhem that will leave you gasping to rewind and check what you have just seen. Starring Australian screen icons, John Stanton, Rowena Wallace and Michael Carman, Umbrella Entertainment have dug deep into the vaults of Australian cult cinema to unearth this indie assault, filmed back-to-back in Australia's bicentennial year of 1988.
Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith (The Man From Hong Kong, Frog Dreaming), this long forgotten Australian action gem has been resurrected and scanned in 4K from the original 35mm interpositive elements. For the first time, this cult time-capsules have been remastered in HD and presented in its original aspect ratio.
