Shatter (1974) Blu-ray: Hammer Films meet Shaw Bros.

Shout Factory is set to release this Hammer Films and Shaw Brothers co-production of Shatter (1974) on Blu-ray. Stars Stuart Whitman.

Hammer Films and The Shaw Brothers come together again for an exciting action film!

International assassin Shatter (Stuart Whitman, Crazy Mama, Ruby) completes a contract kill on an African dictator and heads for Hong Kong to collect his payment. But when he finds himself marked for death in a deadly double-cross, the hit man is hunted through the seedy underworld. Now with the help of a kung fu master (Ti Lung, A Better Tomorrow), Shatter must take on the international drug syndicate in a final showdown of violence and vengeance!

Filmed on location in Hong Kong, Shatter (also known as Call Him Mr. Shatter) was the second and last of Hammer’s co-productions with the famed Shaw Brothers studio (The Legend Of The Seven Golden Vampires). Cult director Monte Hellman (Two-Lane Blacktop, Cockfighter) was replaced mid-production by producer Michael Carreras who completed this troubled-yet-fascinating action thriller that co-stars Anton Diffring (Circus Of Horrors) and the legendary Peter Cushing in his final Hammer performance.
