The film that launched generations of kung fu acolytes, a popular film series and a few thousand rap songs, this iconic film will also have KILL BILL fans experiencing serious déjà vu. Known as one of the greatest kung-fu movies ever made, FIVE DEADLY VENOMS follows the adventure that ensues after the Poison Clan’s dying master instructs his final student to track down each of his five prior pupils and discover whether his techniques are being used for good or for evil.

Five skilled martial arts students — the Centipede, the Scorpion, the Lizard, the Snake, and the Toad — are mysterious, masked disciples of a clan leader whose dying wish sends his favorite student off to find out whether they intend to carry on for good or evil. Kickass fight scenes and psychedelic lighting that would make Dario Argento beg for mercy give FIVE DEADLY VENOMS “essential viewing” status, possibly even more popular now than ever — and the film’s climactic five-way battle is the stuff of legend, “as good as — if not better than --any on-screen fight before or since.” (MutantReviewers.com)

FIVE DEADLY VENOMS (Chang Cheh, 1978 / 98 mins / 18A / English subs) A kung-fu student is instructed by his dying teacher to track down five of the teacher's ex-students. Each of the five is equipped with a lethal martial arts skill, and the teacher fears this might be used for evil purposes. However, not only does the teacher not know the identity of the students (who all wore masks under his training), but some of the students also don't know each other!
