Five Deadly Venoms (1978)

Directed by
Cheh Chang

Violent action adventure. A dying martial arts master reveals to his final student, Yang Tieh, the real reason the Five Venoms clan have led a secluded existence is because they once committed acts so heinous they became outcasts in the martial arts world. Now, the master has decided to dissolve his school and ensure that his five star disciples either use their lethal skills for good, or perish. But his frailty means the student must now take on this task. However, the Scorpion, Centipede, Snake, Lizard and Toad are masters of their given martial art style, while Yang Tieh barely has a grounding in each. And to make matters more difficult, they are living under assumed identities in locations unknown... Directed by Chang Che for the Shaw Brothers Studio.
