Two new films from Vietnam and Indonesia.

Terracotta Distribution is pleased to announce the acquisition of two new films, from Vietnam and Indonesia, to add to their already diverse catalogue: THE LADY ASSASSIN by director Nguyen Quang Dung and SHACKLED (aka BELENGGU) by director Upi.

THE LADY ASSASSIN is a 3-D martial arts film in the vein of classic Shaw Brothers film. It broke local box office records for its domestic release and took $3m at the box-office on opening weekend in L.A. alone.

Psychological thriller SHACKLED (aka BELENGGU) by female director Upi is a David Lynch style murder mystery, noir/horror from Indonesia. It opened the Terracotta Festival ’s Horror All-Nighter jointly presented with Film4 FrightFest in June.

Both films will be released in the UK on DVD and digital channels with a limited theatrical release showing THE LADY ASSASSIN in November 2013.

Terracotta founder Joey Leung commented: “We are very excited to be working on these titles - we will take a tailor-made product development and marketing approach to each film. Both Vietnam and Indonesia have a strong output of films and we are one of the few labels to help connect UK audiences with these fantastic titles.”

These will be the first titles from Vietnam and Indonesia from the Terracotta and Terror Cotta labels, having released diverse titles from Korean fantasy horror HANSEL AND GRETEL to Taiwanese drama GOD MAN DOG and Japanese 3D comedy-horror BIG TITS ZOMBIE.

Terracotta Distribution launched this monthly film residency in January 2013 at the legendary, cult Prince Charles Cinema in London with a mission to offer the chance to enjoy Asian films regularly on the big screen, right in the heart of London. Previous Film Clubs editions showcased Jackie Chan’s POLICE STORY, Pang Ho-Cheung’s VULGARIA, Prachya Pinkaew’s CHOCOLATE and Wong Kar Wai’s DAYS OF BEING WILD.

To time with the release of ,strong>HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS on DVD, ‘Terracotta Film Club’ offers the chance to watch the South Korean adaptation of HANSEL AND GRETEL at the cinema.

YIM Phil-sung’s twisted version is a dark modern age fairy tale for adults, spinning the original Grimm fairytale on its head.

Previous ‘Terracotta Film Clubs’ of POLICE STORY, LADY SNOWBLOOD and DAYS OF BEING WILD were sold out. And the 5th edition of the Terracotta Far East Film Festival (TFEFF13) was successfully wrapped last week.

This enthusiasm is a real encouragement and Terracotta organisers will pursue their efforts to show Asian films regularly on the big screen throughout the year.

"as unsettling to watch as it is gorgeous to look at" - Evening Standard

"Lavish cinematography makes this K-horror a ravishingly kitsch watch and the child actors are fabulously creepy." - Metro
