Shaolin monks. Animal fighting styles. Flying guillotines. Old school sound effects. White-haired villains with maniacal laughter. This is Kung Fu Theater.

We’ve dedicated ourselves to saving these films and presenting them to modern audiences.
Shaolin Vs. Lama (1983) A Tibetan Lama (not a llama) steals a sacred Shaolin manual outlining all 72 kung fu fighting styles. At the same time, a young street fighter goes to the Shaolin Temple and meets an alcoholic kung fu master who agrees to train him. The Lama villain becomes an unstoppable master who begins to unleash his fury at Shaolin, resulting in a flurry of vicious kung fu fights. Now it’s up to the young fighter to save the day with his “Buddha Finger” technique. This movie is non-stop ferocious kung fu madness!
