Hi I'm new to this forum. I've been searching for a long time trying  to find this cool Kung fu movie I seen as a kid in the seventies it involved  several different fighters with special fighting styles like the mantis, the snake, the crane etc. and the all join together to fight this blind guy who seems to have no weaknesses and super hearing.....until they trap him in a sarcophagus with nails in it trying to find his weak spot and they close it and it punctures his eardrums making him vulnerable and they finally defeat him. I hope someone can help me out!

Hi I'm new to this forum.


Welcome!

...this cool Kung fu movie I seen as a kid in the seventies it involved  several different fighters with special fighting styles like the mantis, the snake, the crane etc. and the all join together to fight this blind guy who seems to have no weaknesses and super hearing.....until they trap him in a sarcophagus with nails in it trying to find his weak spot and they close it and it punctures his eardrums making him vulnerable and they finally defeat him.


Well..... it doesn't match up entirely with your description, but Five Deadly Venoms (1978) does match some stuff.  There are five fighters: Scorpion, Lizard, Toad, Snake and Centipede, as well as a sixth who's still a student but has a bit of each style.  The guy who is trapped in a sarcophagus is practically impregnable, seeing as he's the Toad, until they puncture what I seem to recall are his eardrums.  I can't recall right now if they somehow did that afterwards because the sarcophagus failed, or if it actually happened while he was in it.   But, he's not the main bad guy and he wasn't blind (and if I recall it happens only about halfway through the movie).

It could be you are mis-remembering this movie or mashing it up with another.  Or, perhaps, trapping an impregnable guy in a sarcophagus with nails in it to puncture his eardrums is a motif in kung fu movies.  Having different fighting styles based on animals certainly is.  In any event, FDV is certainly a movie worth watching in its own right.  (I seem to recall hearing of a movie that was supposed to be a sequel, but I have never seen it nor can I find any such movie on IMDb right now.  Hmmm.)

Thanks for the reply but Sorry that isn't the one....I remember the fight scene taking place outside in the woods...not sure if he was blind from the start or they blinded him somehow but he would use his ears to listen for their movement and they would wiggle a bit while he listened...lol.

The super hearing part makes me think of Master of the Flying Guillotine, and the end fight does take place in a coffin shop.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
