    I?m ashamed to say I hadn?t seen this until just this viewing.  I?m glad I blind bought it, since I?ll be revisiting this one often.  Incredibly fun.

    Five kung-fu ex-students each want to find the hidden treasure but which Venom is which, and which fighting style - centipede (wriggly), snake (Finger fangs), scorpion (kicky), gecko (gravity defying) or toad (tough) - is best. Lots of Venom-on-Venom action as the loyalties shift between the five makes this a lively cult film,.

    This is one of my favourite kung-fu films and is regarded as one the most popular Shaw Brothers from the late 70's. The plot is interesting and twisty, the characters are cool each with their own style - toad, snake, lizard etc. The action is limited in comparison with other Chang Cheh / Venoms films but what is there is interesting with different kung-fu styles on display from the various characters. I recommend this film to those who think all Shaw Brothers especially Chang Cheh's films are the same, most of his films usually focus on the 10 tigers and Shaolin vs Manchu conflicts. This film is breath of fresh air in comparison.

    Instant insane yet, fairly well paced classic kung-fu flick that is a must have in every martial arts enthusiast's home. A dying master of martial arts assigns his final student an assignment to find and unite his 5 most mysterious yet dangerous disciples, that are trained in different styles of self defense. As the final student looks for the disciples, a crime is committed...someone is guilty and they must pay! See this it is incredible!
