A young martial artist is sent to seek out his elder classmates, the Five Venoms, by his dying master. It has become his duty to make sure that the five skilled warriors are not abusing their powers for the own personal gain. As it turns out, the Venoms have gathered in a small town to reclaim the clan's ill-gotten treasure, where they have each turned against each other out of brutal rivalry and betrayal. Now, Yan Tieh must align with one of the fighters in order to defeat the other members! FIVE DEADLY VENOMS is a lavishly dressed Kung-Fu film set in 14th century China that combines brilliantly choreographed fighting, lighthearted humor, and a greedy tale of corruption that is fun and exciting from start to finish. Each of the colorful characters have their own unique skill set that turns them into superhuman warriors bearing the fighting styles and traits of their names: Scorpion, Centipede, Toad, Gecko, and Snake. Chinese master Chang Cheh lives up to his reputation, delivering stunning cinematography, editing, wire-work, framing, and set design that allows his characters to fly through the air, walk on walls, and defy all other laws of gravity during the high-powered and extravagant fight sequences. Even outsiders to the world of Martial Arts cinema can enjoy the skillful design, entertaining characters, and enjoyable plot in this Kung-Fu classic!
