From the director of The One Armed Swordsman and The Master of the Flying Guillotine comes this tale of a notorious royal executioner who finds himself on the wrong side of the blade. Ren De-tie (Jimmy Wang Yu) has decapitated 997 criminals with his solid-gold blade, and he looks forward to breaking 1,000 by placing the remaining members of the dreaded Blood Brothers gang on his blood-drenched chopping block. After being visited by a malevolent spirit who requests that he purposefully miscalculate his swing in order to ensure that Blood Brother Chee suffers a particularly painful death, reluctant Ren passes the job on to his protégé Quick Kid (Chin Siu-ho). But when the day of Chee's execution comes and the brutal butcher warns that he will return from hell as a vengeance-seeking demon if the Quick Kid doesn't make a clean cut, the intimidated executioner-in-training inadvertently botches the beheading. Now, as the remaining survivor of the Blood Brothers gang resurrects the murderous group in order to destroy all who took part in their capture, Ren must seek the help of the Guardian of Hell (Wu Ma) to ensure that their vicious rein of terror is ended once and for all.
