Overview

The legendary Shaw Brothers push boundaries and smash taboos with this outrageous tale of a beautiful young woman who learns a deadly fighting technique after being abducted and sold off to the infamous Four Seasons brothel. Ai Nu was just a young innocent when she was ripped from her family and sold into a life of prostitution. Upon arriving at the Four Seasons brothel, Ai Nu is bestowed the secrets of the mystical martial arts by the lusty madam in charge. One of the techniques, the "Ghost Hands," gives Ai Nu the power to kill a man by plunging her bare hands straight into his chest. Later, a rash of murders in the brothel leads a local policeman to suspect that someone is out for revenge. Lily Ho and Betty Pei Ti star in the audacious kung-fu classic that inspired the action-packed cult hit Naked Killer (1994).
