FIVE DEADLY VENOMS
WU DU
1978, AGFA, 98 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Chang Cheh

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. 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. The climactic five-way battle is the stuff of legend.
