Have Sword Will Travel Sun March 11, 7.00pm at the Quad

For the latest edition of our monthly series co-presented and programmed with Subway Cinema, we present a double bill of Chu Yuan's expertly choreographed The Magic Blade on 35mm and Chang Cheh's tale of bloody vengeance, Crippled Avengers

The Magic Blade
Chu Yuan, 1976, Hong Kong, 97m., 35mm
A near-perfect mixture of swordplay, fantasy, martial arts, heroic bloodshed, and more Ti Lung greatness than any moviegoer could ever ask for, in some of the best choreographed fights in wuxia history. It remains one of the true classics of the Shaw Brothers library.

Crippled Avengers may be the ultimate movie featuring the martial artists known as “The Venom Mob.” Warlord Chen Kuan-Tai goes insane after his enemies kill his wife and cripple his son. He proceeds to maim anyone who crosses his path. Four of his victims unite to seek bloody vengeance.
