One of the greatest film serials ever to come out of Japan puts together an
all-star cast in the search for the key of the Crimson Peacock, a treasure trove
that will make whoever discovers it the richest man in the world.
The battle lines are drawn between two rival groups, the Swans and the Skulls
competing to find the key and the map, while unrequited love for a beautiful woman
complicates everything as she is forced to take a potion that gives her an evil heart.
It’s edge of the seat excitement from start to finish in this 5 movie serial as parts
1 through 4 each end with a cliffhanger, building suspense to the very end when all
is revealed! There is action, romance, and intrigue, with a touch of black magic as
the forces of good and evil collide!
