Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #151!

The Dragon Strikes Back  (aka Shanghai Joe)  (Beacon Films Inc, 1976)

The Beast with Five Fingers  (Warner Bros., 1946)

This one I've seen! Pretty cool little suspenser with a dead pianist seemingly committing murders from beyond the grave - directing his own severed hand to throttle his victims!

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!

    1. hmm yes, just watched The Beast with Five Fingers last night; different movie, but I saw some influences.

  3. "The real brother of Bruce Lee! Sort of..."
