Shaolin Monk (1976)
1 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

aka "Shaolin Tamo Buddhist Monk" aka "The Fighting of Shaolin Monk" (aka Killer Priest)... OK, lets stop there, i'll try to clear up the confusion. Like ckormos1 said in his review - "What movie are we really watching here?". It's not your fault ckormos1, this does lead to confusion. The box covers shown here of "Killer Priest" are for the movie "The Furious Monk from Shaolin" aka "Shaolin Vengeance" (1974), unfortunately ckormos1's review belongs there too and the other reviews are correct here.

Shaolin Monk (The Fighting of Shaolin Monk) 1976 has a video release by Wu Tang Collection called "Killah Priest" but also has a Xenon's Wu Tang "VHS title" Killer Priest. The Furious Monk from Shaolin (Shaolin Vengeance) 1974 has the Xenon Martial Masters "DVD title" Killer Priest, which is the one most commonly seen. I don't know why they didn't reference Killer Priest in The Furious Monk from Shaolin page ckormos1, which led you to place your review here. Oh, also, both movies have Chan Sing and Phillip Ko on the box covers (they're in both movies) which leads to more confusion.

The easiest way to tell the two apart is to look at the female star roles - Chia Ling is in this one (Shaolin Monk) and Joan Lin Feng-Chiao is in the other (The Furious Monk from Shaolin). Hope this helps someone.

There's not much I can add to this for a review because Brian Camp nailed it again. Good job Brian. I liked this movie, it was good.
