One of pop culture’s most infamous and iconic cult kung-fu films! The deadly Centipede, Snake, Lizard, Toad and Scorpion martial-arts styles collide with deadly consequences when a young disciple must ascertain the identities of his five mysterious brothers and unearth a missing treasure. In the director’s chair is John Woo’s mentor, Chang Cheh (ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN), who redefined martial-arts cinema in the golden age of the ’60s and ’70s during his tenure at the glorious Shaw Brothers studios, leading to the international explosion of the genre. Unavailable for 20 years except by badly dubbed bootlegs, Fantasia presented the restored version in 2006. Pick your poison and strap yourself in to witness some truly intoxicating fighting and intrigue.
