One of the greatest kung-fu films of all time is back on the big screen with the fury of 1,000 fists! After a deadly attack from anti-Ching patriots, San Te (the legendary Gordon Liu of KILL BILL) devotes himself to learning the martial arts under the guidance of Ho Kuang-han, in order to seek revenge upon the thugs who attacked his school. Also known as THE MASTER KILLER and SHAOLIN MASTER KILLER, this movie contains one of the most unbelievable training montages ever put to film, as San Te works his way through the 35 chambers. Masterfully directed by Shaw Brothers favorite Chia-Liang Liu, THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN was a major influence on the Wu-Tang Clan, and set the high bar on kung-fu movies for the rest of history.
