Chan Lam (Connie Chan Po-chu) and his mother are ambushed by the “Four Evil Scholars”. Lam’s mother is killed, and Lam is thrown into the blood pool. There, Lam meets Ng Yau-nin, whose wife and daughter were abducted by evil cult leader Or Yugan (Lam Kau). Ng teaches Lam the Blood Demon power and helps him escape the blood pool. After visiting his mentor (Cheng Kwun-min), Lam defeats the Fierce Fire Cult and becomes famous throughout the martial arts world as the “Bloody Devil”. However, Lam catches the attention of Or, and their long battle is about to begin. After his success in portraying the “Haunted Spirit Old Man” in Moslem Sacred Fire Decree (1965), Cheng Kwun-min was immediately invited to play another elderly mentor character by director Siu Sang. Unfortunately, all prints of this wuxia saga’s sequel episode have disappeared for good.
