Steven Sheil’s “Dead Mine” is getting a DVD & Blu-ray release on May 28th. The film stars oe Taslim, Sam Hazeldine, and Miki Mizuno. XLRator Media will be giving a new packaged look for the Western release of the film. “Dead Mine” is HBO Asia’s first original production and was released in the Pan-Asian market at the end of last year in Singapore, followed by Philippines before a January release in Indonesia. I haven’t seen much of on this movie but CGI aside it has peaked my interest a bit.
A rich amateur treasure hunter assembles an expert group to investigate a possible location for the legendary Yamashita’s Gold – lost treasure looted from across Asia by Japanese forces during World War 2. Venturing deep into the jungles of a remote Indonesian island, the group finds itself under attack and forced into an apparently abandoned mine, only to become trapped underground in a Japanese Imperial Army bunker. They quickly realize that they are not alone, and face a desperate struggle to escape, or fight to the death.
