In 1973, Toshiya Fujita released hell upon the world in the form of a vengeful spirit named Yuki. Meiko Kaji starred in the film about a getting revenge at the end of a sword hidden in an umbrella, and it remains a masterpiece that, as you can probably guess, inspired a certain sword-wielding, yellow jumpsuit-wearing avenger killing for Quentin Tarantino.

Now the wonderful team over at Arrow Films is releasing Lady Snowblood on Blu-ray and DVD, special edition style. On September 24th, they’re making a combo edition and a steelbook version available. Both include not only the original, but also its sequel. Both are Region B, so make sure your player is compatible.

This year seems like the one to celebrate characters born in prisons seeking revenge on wrongs done to parents, so this timing is perfect. Thanks, Arrow.
