Coming recently from Arrow Video as a part of their film releases provided by the Toei Company is the wonderfully wild Sonny Chiba action-horror hybrid, Wolf Guy! Completely unreleased before on DVD and Blu-ray the film is a rare treat for Asian cinema and genre fans. Akira Inugama (Sonny Chiba) is a police detective raised by wolves who uses his infused lycanthrope powers in the assistance of solving crimes. Arrow Video has provided Wolf Guy in a dual format Blu-ray/DVD release complete with a booklet, reversible art, and some new special features! Check out the video for the full review on this release and my thoughts on this ridiculous B-movie treat!
