“San Francisco Massacre” available on Blu-ray from 88 Films.
RELEASE DATE: February 19, 2024
Eureka will be releasing the Region B Blu-ray of Slaughter in San Francisco (also known as Yellow Faced Tiger) on February 19, 2024. This 1974 action film, directed by Lo Wei (known for Fist of Fury), features Don Wong Tao (from The Hot, the Cool and the Vicious) and Chuck Norris (from Code of Silence).
Two San Francisco cops, Don Wong (also known as Wong Tao) and John Summer (also known as Robert Jones), rescue a young lady (Sylvia Chang) from being attacked by a group of lawbreakers. However, all the illegal activities in San Francisco are controlled by Chuck Slaughter (played by Chuck Norris), who does not appreciate police involvement in his operations. Wong is dismissed from the police force by his corrupt Captain, and Summer is killed by Slaughter’s henchmen. Armed with his impressive kung fu abilities, Wong makes a promise to rid the streets of crime and defeat Slaughter once and for all!
A gloriously trashy slice of gritty kung fu action, Slaughter in San Francisco was producer Raymond Chow’s attempt to capitalise on Hong Kong cinema’s sudden explosion of popularity in the West. Eureka Classics is proud to present Slaughter in San Francisco for the first time ever on Blu-ray from a new 2K restoration!
The movie also includes Sylvia Chang Ai Chi (known for her role in The Tattooed Dragon), Chin Yuet Sang (from Hocus Pocus), and action choreography by Han Ying Chieh (who worked on The Big Boss).
The O-Card slipcase, with new artwork by Sam Gilbey, is a limited edition item with only 2000 copies available.
