American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) to release Lady Street Fighter on Blu-ray, August 14th

LADY STREET FIGHTER (1981) 

A new 2K transfer of this trash-action classic from one of the most important lady filmmakers in exploitation history!

Alamo Drafthouse's American Genre Film Archive, the largest non-profit genre film archive in the world, is excited to announce an August 14th, 2018 release date for LADY STREET FIGHTER on Blu-ray.

She makes the bad guys bleed! Written and produced by exploitation demigod Renee Harmon (FROZEN SCREAM) and directed by the legendary James Bryan (DON'T GO IN THE WOODS), this is the story of Linda (Harmon), a tough-as-nails karate cop on the trail of the ruthless scumbags who murdered her twin sister!

From the outrageous fight scenes to Harmon's incredible outfits, LADY STREET FIGHTER is a joyous blast of no-holds-barred chaos from one of the most important female filmmakers in genre history. Don't miss the special appearance by Trace Carradine, the most elusive Carradine brother of all!

"Renee Harmon will now be finally recognized as the low budget genius-in-the-rough that she always was," said LADY STREET FIGHTER director James Bryan. "Her great day has arrived!"



Special features include:
- New 2K preservation from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print!
- Commentary track with director James Bryan and the AGFA team!
- Street fightin' trailers from the AGFA vaults!
- Liner notes by Annie Choi of Bleeding Skull!
- Bonus Movie: REVENGE OF LADY STREET FIGHTER (1990), the unreleased sequel to LADY STREET FIGHTER -- preserved in 2K from the original 35mm camera negative!
- Reversible cover art!
