In 1973, filmmaker King Hu climaxed his 'Inn Trilogy' and followed up the acclaimed A Touch of Zen with The Fate of Lee Khan, now considered a classic of the 'Wuxia' martial arts genre. The film sees Hu make use of a single setting, an inn that becomes the scene of a standoff between warriors from opposing sides of a civil war. The cast features such iconic Hong Kong stars as Tien Feng, Hsu Feng and Angela Mao, with action choreography by Sammo Hung.

The Fate of Lee Khan will make its UK disc debut debut on October 21st, when Eureka Entertainment release it on dual format DVD/blu-ray in a new 2K restoration.

Bonus features include a commentary by critic and Asian cinema expert Tony Rayns; video essay by David Cairns; trailer; collector's booklet featuring new and archival writing on the film. The first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited Edition O-card slipcase.

Check out Eureka's new trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

When Lee Khan (Tien Feng; A Better Tomorrow, Fist of Fury) a dangerous and cunning Mongol official, and his equally deadly sister Lee Wan-erh (Hsu Feng; A Touch of Zen), arrive at the Spring Inn to obtain a battle map that reveals the location of the Chinese rebel army, a group of resistance fighters, including an all-female group of ex-convicts plan to recapture the map, whatever the cost.
