When news of Bruce Lee’s sudden death breaks, an elite martial artist is enlisted to investigate the mysterious circumstances in the 1975 martial arts action cult film The Black Dragon’s Revenge.

Restored in HD from the original 35mm negative, the movie stars martial arts performers Ron “The Black Dragon” van Clief (Fist of Fear, Touch of Death) and Charles “The Latin Panther” Bonet (Death Promise).

From the heyday of 1970s “Blaxploitation” and Kung Fu flicks, the R-rated Black Dragon’s Revenge boasts the crude dialog and cut-rate film techniques typical of those genres, but succeeds by having a legit bad ass like van Clief (nicknamed “The Black Dragon” by Lee himself) in the lead role.

Special features include on these new digital incarnations include the following:

-Original theatrical trailer
-“Bruce Lee Dubs,” a humorous compilation where mentions of “Lee” were scratched out of the original negative for fear of rights violations.
