looks as good as it ever could, i love the original 6 lone wolf and cub movies and if you want a dumbed down mash up of the first 2 movies (all be it with a different story line) and with all the best set pieces look no further, also has a brilliant synth score

another brilliant fulci zombie flick i would suggest picking up the blue underground blu-ray release from the usa, its region free,and looks beautiful (though in the states it is just called "zombie")
