Beats KILL BILL
20 October 2003 | by (Kahului, HI, USA) – See all my reviews

Anyone who thinks KILL BILL is the first and last word in chambara/grindhouse kung fu films really need to see this earlier film.

BLOOD OF THE SAMURAI may not have a hip soundtrack, name actors, or much of a budget, but it does have a lot of love for the genre. It borrows from HOUSE WHERE EVIL DWELLS, NINJA III: THE DOMINATION, and every show ever on KIKU-TV, but it doesn't have a rip-off feel to it the way KILL BILL does. Oh yeah, it also beats KB's over the top blood spurting with some interesting (and surprising) effects by Screaming Mad George.

If you wanna see an honest tribute instead of someone's egofest, watch this!
