Kung Fu Assassins Attack UCLA
This Sunday, December 11th (scroll down to the bottom of page), students from the Deadly Venoms school of kung fu will descend upon the UCLA campus to battle over who will inherit the school's treasure and legacy. Will it be Toad? Snake? Centipede? Lizard? Or the mysterious Scorpion? Who knows? (Well actually I do, but I'm not telling).
If you've seen Five Deadly Venoms you know it as a poorly dubbed Chop Socky classic. In fact, it is one of the all time great Shaw Brothers films. But you haven't really seen the film until you've seen it on the big screen (35 mm) in Mandarin (with subtitles) and remastered. Awesome.
