Cover art and details for R1 'Retribution' from Kiyoshi Kurasawa!

I have been reminded this week that not all of our readers have the access to import DVDs or enjoy the benefits of all-region players. Nor may they have friends like Todd who program stellar international programs into festivals like FantAsia, FantasticFest or Toronto After Dark where you can see such films. So, I have to remember that not everyone has seen films like Kiyoshi Kurasawa's Retribution yet and any R1 release should be noted and praised. That is why I am a couple days behind on this, I would normally ignore such an announcement, but this news is for the benefit to those who do not have the access...

A few days ago Lionsgate Home Entertainment announced Retribution (Sakebi) will presented in anamorphic widescreen, with a Japanese Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track with English and Spanish subtitles. Extras will include a Making of Retribution featurette, an interview with Director Kiyoshi Kurasawa, and an alternate ending. Available on April 15th you can get your hands on this dandy of a ghost story, a film we like quite a lot around here.

Now that is how you do cover art. Waaaaaaaaaaay better than the NIGHTMARE DETECTIVE R1 cover!

i agree Kurt! that's one pretty looking cover.... I wish I could be an art director for U.S. DVD covers since R1 releases are typically the worst covers of them all. Does this job exist? sign me up! :)

What we need to do is get our own Swarez's name out there. The man does phenomenal work and he has proven taste to treat a property with respect.
I sure as heck don't know where that Nightmare Detective came from either. So far past left field that left field is straining to see it.

yeah, the ghost's breasts aren't even enhanced on the cover. more covers like these pls.
