Directed by Chang Cheh. 1978. Hong Kong. 98 min. Mandarin with English subtitles.
The most prolific kung fu director in Hong Kong martial arts cinema, Chang Cheh ushered in a new phase of his career and a new generation of action stars with The Five Venoms. The setting is ancient China's School of Five Venoms, named for its five types of kung fu based on five venomous animals: centipede, scorpion, serpent, toad and lizard. The school is notorious for the evil deeds of its disciples, leading to another classic battle between righteousness and depravity.
