this was my first full length Shaw Brothers movie. I knew nothing about them or the Venoms or even kung fu, but I sure enjoyed this movie. it must have been the early 80s when it made the rounds on local tv. naturally I never thought to write down the names of these films. so for years I never knew it's name, nor if I'd ever see it again.
this is the US opening, from an old tv print. it lets you know who the bad guys are and just how bad they are. it is sort of the story of the fall of the Shaolin Temple, but not quite. I highly recommend the R1 DVD though, it looks and sounds great.
