Win Tickets to See Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky at NYAFF

We here at VCinema are not only going to bring you coverage of the New York Asian Film Festival, we’re also going to send a couple of you to see the films themselves.  In conjunction with NYAFF and Variance Films, we’re proud to be able to give away a pair of tickets to one lucky person and a guest to the midnight, Friday, July 8th screening of Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (1991) at the Walter Reade Theater in the Film Society Lincoln Center.

To enter this contest, send an email to vcinema@variedcelluloid.net with the subject line “Send me to Ricky!” and include your name and an answer to the following trivia question:

What is the name of the two-part martial arts epic that Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky star Siu-Wong Fan starred in recently? (hint: we reviewed it on the VCinema blog a couple of weeks ago)

All entries must be received by 11:59PST on Sunday, June 28th. One winner will be chosen randomly from all completed entries and their information will be sent to the folks at NYAFF.  Only one entry per email address, please.

NYAFF’s synopsis of Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky:

The classic Hong Kong midnight action movie about prison privatization and monsters who strangle you with their guts. Rarely seen on the big screen, this is a full-on, ridiculously crazy mind-melter full of crucifixion, flaying,classic kung fu combat and prison wardens who keep breath mints in their glass eyeballs.

Our synopsis is come on, this RICKY-frickin’ OH, the baddest of the badass movies!!!! We wouldn’t dedicate the very first episode of our podcast to this film if we didn’t love it to death.  We’re going to be jealous that the lucky schmuck winner of this contest is going to be able to see this on the big screen!
