New Images From Karate Kill, Ahead Of Bucheon World Premiere

We loved the hell out of Kurando Mitsutake’s Gun Woman, so it’s hardly surprising that his follow-up movie Karate Kill is among our most eagerly anticipated new movies in 2016. As such, any new info on the exploitation beat-’em-up is more than welcome, so we’re happy to share that Karate Kill is set for its world premiere at South Korea’s Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, which runs from the 21st to the 31st of July. Slim chance of anyone from BAH making it out there, alas; but courtesy of the festival website, we do have some new images to share – including, as you can see above, our first proper look at the ever-awesome Asami in action, rocking a red beret like Rik from The Young Ones, and other such revolutionary-type bad-asses.

Official synopsis: “Mysterious loner and karate master Kenji’s little sister suddenly goes missing in Los Angeles! Now, whoever stands in his way of finding her will taste the wrath of a lethal karate kill!”

Reviews

"There are a lot of great actors to be found in this movie, and far too many to mention. Who steals the show, however, is Geiger. If an award were to be handed out this year for Best Actor, Geiger deserves to win. His portrayal of Vendeski is flat-out superb, and quite an eye-opener. He brings such life into his sinister, crazed-out cult-leader character, flawlessly tackling this task. His facial expressions and line-delivery are spot-on. Geiger’s Vendeski will scare and creep-out any unsuspecting viewer, and even cause a few chuckles along the way."
