Bruce Lee Fights Back From The Grave is a 1976 Bruceploitation movie starring Bruce Lee impersonator and tae kwon do instructor Jun Chong (using the name Bruce K.L. Lea). The movie was directed by Doo-Yong Lee, though persistent rumour claims that the movie was directed by Italian horror director Umberto Lenzi. (He may have directed the Bruceploitation elements that were tacked on to the original film.) The poster for the film bears a resemblance to the Meat Loaf album, Bat Out of Hell, but the film was released a year before the album's release date. The poster's artwork was very common among exploitation films.
The version of the film seen on UK and US videos and DVDs comes from an US edit of an English dub prepared in Hong Kong. Although the film was released in Korea in 1976, it isn't clear if the film had a release in Chinese markets. The music score for the Chinese/English version contains music lifted from the soundtracks to Rocky (1976) and Rollercoaster (1977), two films not released until after the Korean release date of this film. The sound FX on this version is typical HK sound FX rather than the sort heard in Korean films. Also, the script for the English dub makes repeated references to the Asian characters being Chinese, when the visual evidence is that they are Korean. The US distributors added the infamous "Bruce Lee" opening sequence.
The UK VHS added their own bit of Bruceploitation falsehood, by stating that Danny Inosanto [Bruce Lee's student and an actor in Game Of Death (1978) and The Chinese Stuntman (1981]) was in the cast, and listing the plot synopsis for Exit The Dragon, Enter The Tiger (1976) on the video sleave, probably because they realised the film had nothing to do with Bruce Lee fighting back from the grave!
