Look, Ma…No Head!

In Master Of The Flying Guillotine aka The One-Armed Boxer vs. The Flying Guillotine, Master Fung (Kam Kang) is out to avenge the murder of his two young proteges…He has no name to go on, no description (not that a description would help…did I mention Fung is blind?)…all he knows is the killer is missing an arm. So he sets out with his trusty flying guillotine (which looks like a beanie on a chain with a funeral veil and saw blades inside) to decapitate every one-armed man that crosses his path. Eventually he meets the One-Armed Boxer (Jimmy Wang Yu, who also directed) for the gravity-defying climactic battle (The boxer can run up walls). There’s also an Indian mystic with stretchable arms (the makers of the Street Fighter video game must have seen this)…a spinning head…a great opening theme song by Krautrock protopunks Neu!…It’s truly one of the most surreal Kung Fu movies of all time…

      And luckily the movie is actually as good as the poster…it’s an off-the-wall classic of Kung Fu cinema.
