Shaolin monks. Animal fighting styles. Flying guillotines. Old school sound effects. White-haired villains with maniacal laughter. This is Kung Fu Theater. Rare 35mm prints of Hong Kong action films from the 1970’s and 80’s, presented by Hollywood Theatre programmer Dan Halsted. We’ve dedicated ourselves to saving these films and presenting them to modern audiences.
On Tuesday May 10th at 7:30pm, Kung Fu Theater presents the only known 35mm print of the Bruceploitation obscurity ENTER THE GAME OF DEATH! Advance tickets are strongly recommended, and are available here.
ENTER THE GAME OF DEATH (1978) Bruce Le (NOT Bruce Lee) is hired to retrieve a document that is being held at the top level of a giant pagoda. He dons a yellow track suite, grabs his nunchucks, and begins to fight his way past each level of the tower, which all contain a different (and increasingly bizarre) kung fu master. A Shaolin magician, a snake handler, a kung fu master possessed by a demon, a seven-foot martial arts fighter and more! While being an obvious knockoff of Bruce Lee’s legacy, this is action-packed low budget 70’s kung fu excitement at it’s batshit-craziest! Not to be missed!
