Jenny Hu, Shaw Brothers' gorgeous Chinese-German star, was given her first comedy role in the wild and wacky Guess Who Killed My Twelve Lovers? Described as "a comedy of belly laughs and chilling murders", it is a unique entry in the Hong Kong theater of the absurd.
It's a no-holds-barred battle to the death for possession of the invaluable Purple Sword. Assistant director Wang Po-yi also wrote this entertaining and exciting adventure which could have also been called "The Five Tigers" since there's no doubt that this quintet is the highlight of the action. Huang Tsung-shun is "Fierce Tiger," Hung Liu is "Drunk Tiger," Hsu Erh-niu is "Lame Tiger," award-winning actor Ku Feng is "One-eyed Tiger" and respected director/actor Wu Ma is "Sick Tiger" in a tangle of tussles and thrills.

The second film of the trilogy, Gordon Liu plays Zhou Ren Jie, a man who impersonates a monk in order to learn kung fu in Shaolin, and eventually creates his own Shaolin style of ‘scaffolding kung fu”.
Teenage heart-throbs Ching Li and Paul Chin Pei come across like Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon in the musical Sunset, a musical romp that plays similar to one of Hollywood's famous "Beach Party" movies. A car load of girls meets a car load of boys, and Ching and Paul ultimately fall in love. Yet the film takes an acrid twist and turns out to be more like a Shakespearian tragedy than a beach-babe party.
