THE WORLD OF THE SHAW BROTHERS
Double Feature!
CRIPPLED AVENGERS / MASKED AVENGERS
40th Anniversary!

CRIPPLED AVENGERS
CAN QUE
1978, AGFA, 100 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Chang Cheh

Also known as RETURN OF THE FIVE DEADLY VENOMS, this action-packed film features the same director and most of the cast of that martial arts classic, but in a completely different storyline, and it’s all the better for it. A bitter warlord and his son rule a town with (literally) iron fists, maiming all who give them the slightest offence. Four of their victims - a blinded toy salesman, a deafened blacksmith, a legless passerby and a brain-damaged swordsman train with a kung fu master to seek revenge, transforming their disabilities to advantages.


MASKED AVENGERS
CHA SHOU
1981, AGFA, 92 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Chang Cheh

When a trident-wielding gang known as the Masked Avengers terrorizes the countryside, Chiang Sheng and his martial arts students vow to hunt them down. Reformed Avenger Phillip Kwok offers assistance - but there is a double agent in their midst. Featuring many familiar faces from the Venom Mob and an amazingly choreographed final battle in a booby-trapped temple, this unusually dark and bloody actioner is one of the best Shaw Brothers films of the 1980s.
