Wai Pak and Lo Meng go toe-to-toe in “Five Deadly Venoms”.
Unlike snake fist films of that time, the Venoms crew decided to completely recreate the snake style. They opted to go for a fang-and-tail style, instead of the flat palm to represent the head. In this picture, you’ll notice Wai Pak has one hand in a claw-like shape representing the jaws of the snake and his other hand in a pointed finger strike representing the tail. This particular choreography choice never really caught on as filmmakers resorted to the style made famous by films like “Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow” and “Snake Deadly Act”.
