Directed by Mei-Chun Chang

From Mei-Chun Chang, the director of Dynasty, comes this eye-popping martial-arts extravaganza set near the turn of the 18th century in China. Thirteen women train to become nuns after they are ravaged by bandits. A mastery of kung fu is required before the women finish their training, and after they leave the temple the nuns head out for vengeance. Starring Ying Bai, Shirley Han and Shisuen Leong, Revenge of the Shogun Women, also known as 13 Nuns, delivers chop-socky 3-D action in spades! Restored in 3-D by 3-D Film Archive!

What others  have to say:

Hell hath no fury like 13 scorned women martial arts masters in Mei-Chun Chang’s Revenge of the Shogun Women 3-D! A martial arts revenge classic, the tale of a band of women warriors out for revenge against the bandits that ravaged them is wildly entertaining – and lovingly restored from the best available elements in 3-D by 3-D Film Archive. Presented in BD3D Polarized 3-D and red/blue Anaglyph 3-D (and flat 2D), the image could never be picture-perfect but there are some incredible three-dimensional fight sequences and the English-dubbed audio mix creates a highly entertaining experience. Toss in some new 3-D shorts and you have another excellent release from 3-D Film Archive and Kino Lorber Studio Classics. Recommended

I have had REVENGE OF THE  SHOGUN WOMEN in a field sequential 3D DVD for years. It was one of the first pictures I acquired when digital 3D caught my eye.

This restoration from THE 3D  FILM ARCHIVE and KINO LORBER takes the picture to a height it has not enjoyed since  first release which it richly deserves.

REVENGE OF THE SHOGUN WOMEN has actually been taken higher than up to now it has been possible to experience it.

Having seen the film in 3D before this restoration I say that with authority.

REVENGE OF THE SHOGUN WOMEN 3D delivers on all cylinders

The bonus shorts are fun and titillating.

For those out there who own the rights to yet to be restored 3D motion pictures take a long look at the list of people who chipped to bring this picture back to life.

Those same folk will happily chip in to help restore your picture.

Act now.–Reg Hartt
