About this movie

It all started with The Five Venoms, the internationally loved kung-fu thriller which introduced director Chang Cheh’s recurring cast of martial arts masters. It continued through more than a dozen high-flying, bloody good entertainment movies featuring the same action actors in pairs, trios, quartets, and, most memorably, quintets. While this is considered the last official “Venoms” movie, what a film it is. The title does not lie: an evil prince has secreted stolen imperial treasures in a building that practically bristles with booby-trapped blades. Bodies are pierced, limbs are cut off, and there’s one plasma-spurting attack after another as heroes and rogues alike try to solve the secrets of the hell house. The core Venoms themselves choreograph the gory fun in this fond farewell to their worldwide film series sensation.

This is my all-time favorite Venoms film, mainly because it was the very first Venom and/or Martial-Arts film that I've ever owned which was subtitled, as opposed to English-Dubbed. This gave me a greater appreciation for the dialogue of Kung-Fu films. And, in addition to my teenage nostalgia, some of the best fighting-scenes and storylines of any other Venom-Movie are right here in this movie.

This is one of the Venom Mob's best films. The brutal creativity of Chang Chen and action choreographers Lu Feng, Chiang Sheng and Phillip Kwok Fung Chun add to the atmosphere of awesome "house of traps." Put this movie into your collection!
