Wizards! Gorillas! Bloodsplurts! You’ve never seen a Taiwanese martial arts movie like this one. Two sword-wielding sisters seek revenge against the villains who murdered their family. But these are no ordinary villains—they’re wizards with giant, elasticized tongues who use black magic to control . . . kung fu gorillas! Starring the magnificent Judy Lee (Queen Boxer) and the fierce Carter Wong (Big Trouble in Little China), this supreme basher combines the electricity of a Super Nintendo game with exceptional fight choreography to deliver an otherworldly experience.
