A Double Feature: Two Shaw Bros Martial Arts Blockbusters
in a Special 2 DVD Package

Film Two: FLYING GUILLOTINE 2 (1976)



FEATURE ONE
FLYING GUILLOTINE
(1974)
director: Ho Menga (Meng Hua)
starring: Chen Kuan Tai Ku Feng Liu Wu Chi Pai Wei Sau Kei Lee

Director Ho Menga attained cult status among western Kung Fu film fans with this movie. Chen Kuan Tai plays the leader of a group of killers, commissioned by the Ching Emperor to use a deadly beheading weapon to assassinate dissidents. Although based on a true story, the film's weapon was a complete fabrication because in real life no one ever survived to tell what the actual weapon looked like. Martial arts action is kept to a minimum for this movie; Shaw Bros. studio was more interested in capitalizing on the horrific qualities of a "flying guillotine as a vicious kung fu weapon.

HK import; widescreen uncut (101 min.) version in DVD format, encoded for ALL REGIONS, playable on any American DVD machine. Special laminated flat cardboard package without plastic shell; in Chinese language with removable English, Malaysian, Indonesian or Chinese subtitles as an option; bonus includes trailer, behind-the-scenes and much more.

FEATURE TWO
FLYING GUILLOTINE 2 (1976)
director: Gang Cheng & Shan Hua
starring: Ti Lung Lieh Lo Chun Tin Se Lao Shen Wang Chung Szu Shih

More decapitations than the first entry, plus Ti Lung in a terrific performance. This sequel is a rarity... better in almost every way than the original. The film offers more martial arts this time around and is all the more entertaining for it. The paranoid, tyrannical Manchu emperor is still after Ma Tang (the good guy from the first film). Ma Tang, meanwhile, is leading a group of Han rebels who seek to assassinate the emperor and overthrow the Manchu government. He is assisted by the daughter of a government official. As you may remember, Ma Tang had developed a metal umbrella to stop the flying guillotine, but now the emperor has a new, improved model with two blades... one to cut the umbrella and the second to cut off the head!

HK import; widescreen uncut (88 min.) version in DVD format, encoded for ALL REGIONS, playable on any American DVD machine. In English dubbed language.
