Eureka Entertainment is to release SAMURAI REINCARNATION, a story of ninjas, magic swordsman, evil assassins, and forbidden love, from the director of Battle Royale. Presented as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in its UK debut from a stunning 2K restoration. Available from 19 June 2023, the first print run of 2,000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase.
In the aftermath of a failed rebellion, Amakusa Shiro (Kenji Sawada) is crucified, but returns as a vengeance-filled demon with the power to resurrect the dead. Shiro uses his power to assemble a team of undead warriors—including legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi (Ken Ogata)—and the only one who can stop them is the wandering samurai, Yagyu Jubei.
