For my 75th episode I review the gonzo kung-fu superhero flick “Infra-Man” (1975), made by Hong Kong’s Shaw Brother’s Studio!

    “Turkish Suicide Squad” – Just give it time, bro. Just give it time.

  3. I saw this in a theater years ago, in an auditorium set up for “Infra Sound”. Sounded more like stereo with the right and left channels out of synch.

      Well, the prefix “infra” is Latin for “below,” so I guess that would mean the sound was intended to be of below-average quality?
      Actually, that would apply to the hero of the movie as well. It’s pretty obvious this was a cheap Hong Kong rip-off of the 1960s Japanese TV series Ultraman. Apparently someone thought that since infrared is at the opposite end of the visible spectrum from ultraviolet, they’d just name their knock-off of Ultraman “Inframan” without actually understanding that it amounts to calling him “Lower Man.”

  4. I remember renting this on Dollar Day at the video store ages ago. I loved the fight choreography, which I guess shouldn’t be a surprise from a Shaw Bros movie.

    I ♥ this movie so damn much. Princess Dragon Mom is my personal goddess.
