Not a Horror, butt he Ong bak series is one of my favorite movie series' .
Not horror, but great martial arts. Don't know why it's in shudder but it's still a solid movie!
Really disappointed to see movies like this here. Between Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime, these Ong Bak movies have been in my recommended queue consistently. At Shudder, I expect something different. I'm a horror fan who can't find enough decent horror on those other services, so I don't want to see these here. Just my opinion, of course, but it seems to b the consensus.
It may not be horror, but my second favorite genre is martial arts action, and this movie DELIVERS!
Not even close to being horror, but it might be my favorite martial arts movie of all time. The fight sequences are second to none! If Tony Ja had been around in the eighties, Bruce Lee might never have become famous.
