Directed by Chor Yuen | 1972

With Lily Ho, Yueh Hua, Betty Pei Ti Ting

“The legendary Shaw Brothers push boundaries and smash taboos with this outrageous tale.”
—The New York Times

Controversial upon its release for its unabashedly vicious violence and explicit same-sex eroticism, Chor Yuen’s outrageous blend of martial arts and melodrama remains one of the most infamous entries in the Shaw Brothers canon. The daughter (the sultry Lily Ho) of a wealthy family is abducted into a high-class brothel, where she is taken under the wing of a lustful madam. As her mistress-lover molds her into an expert fighter, she begins to exact revenge on her tormentors. Recently selected as one of the greatest Hong Kong films of all time by Time Out Hong Kong, this lurid gem is exploitation cinema at its most luxurious, with some of the most sumptuous production and costume design of the period.
