The fifth title in the ‘Classic Kung Fu Collection’ is a retro wuxia fantasy from famed Shaw Brothers director CHANG Cheh (ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN, FIVE DEADLY VENOMS).
Two childhood friends, trained in deadly martial arts, are the only survivors of a massacre; when one of them stumbles into a portal to Hell, the lord of the underworld grants him magical powers and an opportunity for revenge if he allows the unruly 'Nine Demons' to enter his body. Returned to the land of the living he sets out to rescue his friend and avenge his family's murder, but will the power of the Nine Demons prove too strong for this kung fu master to control?
