Synopsis by Perry Seibert
John Chang stars in Snake in the Monkey's Shadow as Liang, a martial arts student who impresses his teacher enough to have him instruct Liang in drunken boxing technique. After Liang dispatches a pair of thugs, two hitmen set out to murder him. Liang's friend Khoo teaches him the monkey fist technique in order to help him battle the deadly snake style used by the pair chasing him. The killers murder Khoo, but Liang finds inspiration at the funeral and develops a fighting system that will keep him alive and help him vanquish his foes.
