SHARK: THE BEGINNING
Woo-sol is a young victim of bullying and loses his freedom when he fights back and seriously wounds his juvenile aggressor, Seok-chan. Woo-sol is sentenced to a juvenile detention center where he meets Do-hyun, a mixed martial arts champion, and convinces him to teach him to fight. With the champ’s help, Woo-sol overcomes his physical and mental limitations in preparation for the inevitable and unavoidable rematch with his former bully who vowed to kill him upon his release from detention. Through strict, painful training, Woo-sol awakens the killer shark instinct within himself and prepares for his approaching release… (live action/ 108 mins.)
NIGHT HEAD GENESIS: THE COMPLETE PSYCHIC SAGA
First time on blu-ray! It is common knowledge that the human mind is neither fully understood nor ever put to its maximum use. There is a theory that the mind’s 70% unused portion holds the potential for astounding mental capabilities, known as the “Night Head.” Meet Naoto and Naoya Kirihara, two brothers abandoned by their parents who were terrified of their offspring’s potentially dangerous psychic gifts. Held in captivity for fifteen years, the psychic siblings finally escape their laboratory prison to
explore and experience the outside world. Still burdened by the dire responsibility of their paranormal powers, they soon become entangled in case after case involving supernatural phenomena. This gradually leads the brothers to uncover an evil global corporation out to exploit and harness the psychic energy of gifted individuals such as themselves! (anime/ 24 episodes/3 BDs)
