Director Amir Shervan's 1989 film SAMURAI COP, starring Robert Z'Dar, Matt Hannon and Jannis Farley, has been unearthed by Cinema Epoch and is now available in a DVD special edition for a limited time on prior to the film's June 4th, 2013 DVD street date.   Click here to purchase this new DVD.  Do not fooled into purchasing the inferior DVD from Guilty Pleasures (an imprint of Media Blasters) that was released in 2004.  This new version is superior. 

While going through boxes last year in a studio vault in California, both Cinema Epoch President Greg Hatanaka and Cinema Epoch Producer and Director of Acquisition's Douglas Dunning (he's also a cult actor and voice over artist) discovered the original 35mm camera negative to the late Mr. Shervan's film which has now been newly restored in high definition. 

SAMURAI COP will also be screened at midnight on May 31, 2013 at the Landmark's Nuart Theatre in the Westwood section of Los Angeles.  Tentatively scheduled to appear in person at the screening on the 31st are actor and stuntman Gerald Okamura, actors Jimmy Williams and Mark Frazer, film composer Alan DerMarderosian, cinematographer Peter Palian, and Ben Shervan (the late director's son).  There will also be a limited number of pre-signed DVDs autographed by actor Robert Z'Dar for purchase at this screening only.
