The follow-up to Master of the Flying Guillotine, cited as one of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite movies, 1978’s Flying Guillotine 2 aka Palace Carnage continues in the same vein as the original with its visceral mix of martial arts expertise and weapons-grade violence.

To fight against the evil emperor’s reign of terror outlaw rebel Ma Teng joins a group of female freedom fighters, however, she soon finds herself embroiled not just in a battle with enemy forces but also in with group leader’s torn family loyalties.

Brutal, fast and furious Flying Guillotine 2 is an even more off-kilter Shaw Brothers entry than usual, containing familiar tropes as well as unique elements, it is arguably the best of the Flying Guillotine sequels, rolling along at an impressively crazed pace.
