From his secret lair deep within the South American jungle, international super-villian Fu Manchu (Christopher Lee) and his sadistic daughter Lin Tang (Tsai Chin of THE CASTLE OF FU MANCHU and YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE) reveal their latest diabolical plot for world domination: ten beautiful women are infected with an ancient poison so deadly that one kiss from their lips will bring instant death and lead to a global plague. Now the Asian madman's nemesis, Nayland Smith (Richard Greene of TALES FROM THE CRYPT), must desperately hunt an antidote in a savage land where rape and torture reign and the ultimate evil lies in THE BLOOD OF FU MANCHU.

(1962) Eddie Constantine, Sophie Hardy, Fernando Rey, directed by Jesse Franco. Don't overlook this sci-fi espionage thriller. It's probably the best Constantine film next to ALPHAVILLE. Eddie's an agent out to stop a madman who has a small army of animatons--human robots. LOTS of action, interesting characters, and a dash of genuine humor. Not bad at all. 16mm.
