Cannon’s Ninja Trilogy comes to UK from Eureka!

by Phil Wheat

Eureka Entertainment have announced they are to release The Ninja Trilogy, a trio of crazed martial-arts classics from the 80s starring Sho Kosugi, in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition in the UK on 18th January 2016.

The wild world of Cannon Films rarely became more delirious or influential than this trio of rollocking, crazed action classics. Beginning with Enter the Ninja, they spearheaded a craze for the titular martial-arts assassin that spiralled throughout the decade and beyond, but this eccentric trilogy still stands alone.

Enter the Ninja (featuring Franco Nero and Susan George) deals with a couple on oil-rich land in the Philippines under siege from a ruthless industrialist. Revenge of the Ninja moves to Salt Lake City, Utah, where Cho and his son Kane begin a new life after their family is killed in Japan. After opening a doll shop, a criminal betrayal leads to an almighty showdown. Ninja III: The Domination unleashes the tale of an aerobics instructor possessed by an evil ninja’s spirit to gain revenge from beyond the grave.

Special Features include:

  • High-definition presentations of all three films
  • Commentaries, interviews and trailers
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired
  • Plus: A booklet featuring new writing and archival imagery

The Ninja Trilogy is available to pre-order now from: Amazon | Zavvi. Check out trailers for the first 2 films, along with cover art, below:
