Alamo Drafthouse's American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) To Release Brand New 4k Transfer Of 'The Sword And The Claw'

Alamo Drafthouse's American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) To Release Brand New 4k Transfer Of 'The Sword And The Claw'


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Alamo Drafthouse's American Genre Film Archive, the largest non-profit genre film archive in the world, is excited to announce a January 23, 2018 release date for THE SWORD AND THE CLAW on Blu-ray.

They took his money. They took his family. And now, they've taken his hands. But they can never take his revenge! Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend C├╝neyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It's CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle. This is the movie that Kung-Fu Express described as, "Dirtiest fighting ever!"

"We've been obsessed with Turkish genre films for decades," said AGFA director Joe Ziemba. "We were blown away to discover that we had the only known 35mm print in existence for this movie, which also happens to be Turkey's most insane battle epic. This is the first 4K preservation of a Turkish genre film in history. We couldn't be happier to share it with the world."

Special features include:
- New 4K scan from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print!
- Face-smashing action trailers from the AGFA vault!
- Bonus Movie: BRAWL BUSTERS, a new 2K scan from an original theatrical print!
- Reversible cover art with illustration by Alexis Ziritt (SPACE RIDERS)!
