Five Golden Dragons (1967)

Our prime directive here at Mondo Esoterica is to bring reviews of obscure films, and obscure DVDs, that no other websites offer. We may be accused of losing our way a little recently (surely no-one can call Airport (1970) obscure?) but here is a little something to make it all better!

Five Golden Dragons is a completely overlooked film, despite its cast list boasting Klaus Kinski, Christopher Lee and Brian Donlevy – plus a barrage of other well known actors from mainstream and cult cinema. Shot in Hong Kong it is a well made Edgar Wallace thriller, with plenty of surprises. It comes on a neat little DVD from Italy that has a superb print and great sounding English audio (with no forced subtitles). I recommend both the film and the DVD, but check out the review for lots more.
