    The Cult Classic, Six-Film Series Based on the Internationally Best-Selling Japanese Manga Comics. Includes: SWORD OF VENGEANCE, BABY CART AT THE RIVER STYX, BABY CART TO HADES, BABY CART IN PERIL, BABY CART IN THE LAND OF DEMONS, WHITE HEAVEN IN HELL. Based on the best-selling manga series, the six intensely kinetic Lone Wolf and Cub films elevated chanbara to bloody, new heights. The shogun’s executioner, Itto Ogami (TOMISABURO WAKAYAMA), takes to wandering the countryside as an assassin—along with his infant son Daigoro (AKIHIRO TOMIKAWA) and an infinitely weaponized perambulator—helping those he encounters while seeking vengeance for his murdered wife. Delivering stylish thrills and a body count that defies belief, Lone Wolf and Cub is beloved for its brilliantly choreographed and unbelievably violent action sequences as well as for its tender depiction of the bonds between parent and child.

    SPECIAL EDITION BOX SET FEATURES:

    • New 2K digital restorations of all six films, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks
    • High-definition presentation of Shogun Assassin, the 1980 English-dubbed re-edit of the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films
