Shepherding a cadre of new stars who would frequently regroup for other movies—including his own—in varying combos, Cheh expertly juggled their fight stylings. Kuo Chui is Lizard, Lu Feng is Centipede, Lo Meng is Toad, Wei Pai is Snake, and Sun Chien is Scorpion; all are being tracked by fellow student Chiang Sheng to ascertain if they are upholding or betraying their kung fu teacher’s legacy, with a hunt for buried treasure as the litmus test.

In Mandarin with English subtitles

A film by Chang Cheh
