If you look up "Wild, crazy, weird Filipino cinema" in the encyclopaedia it has a picture of this film next to it. I swear! I don't even know how to describe this film. And don't be fooled by the fact that it has a fucken kid in the lead role. It's not a kid's movie. Anyhoo, I'm not going to review the film for now but I highly recommend that you check out Andrew Leavold's post about the film. He knows his shit about this! And if you don't believe me here's a photo of him and Nino Muhlach who played the main character in STONE BOY.

The first English dubbed THE WARRIOR sequel is THE WARRIOR AND THE NINJA (original title: Bajing Ireng Dan Jaka Sembung). Directed by H. Tjut Djalil (1983) who also directed LADY TERMINATOR, MYSTICS IN BALI, and many more. It was followed by THE WARRIOR AGAINST THE BLIND SWORDSMAN. There are two more sequels but they've never been dubbed or subbed into English.

Feel free to use my cover scans for your own blog, website or facebook page/wall all you want. But could you please credit where you got them from, i.e. this blog. Thanks. No, I didn't create these covers but the ones that came from my own collection I spent time scanning. I try and credit the best I can and I expect the same in return. Cheers.
