_“It stands as the pinnacle of 1970s martial arts films.” _- FilmCritic.com

The one-armed boxer is stalked by a vengeful flying guillotine expert, after his disciples were killed. But as the flying guillotine master is blind, he starts his quest by becoming a serial killer of one-armed men. Meanwhile, the one-armed boxer is running a martial arts school, where he teaches his pupils to control their breath so they can run up walls and along ceilings. And there’s an Indian fakir whose arms can extend until they’re ten feet long. As you may have gathered, this iconic kung fu face-hammer of a film is a 5-star powerhouse; rest assured there are epic martial arts battles and ludicrously inspired moments galore.

Starring and directed by the incredible fighter Jimmy Wang Yu, with a glorious German electronic soundtrack by Neu, Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream. New transfer from 35mm.
