The East Meets the West Ep. 3 – Invincible Shaolin and Death Rides a Horse

We’re back! After a ridiculous hiatus, The East Meets the West returns on a regular basis, with Patsy the Angry Nerd! 

This episode we cover the another Chang Cheh directed Shaw Brothers film, Invincible Shaolin (1978), also starring the Venom Mob!  Our second feature covered is the 1967 Lee Van Cleef picture, Death Rides a Horse!

Patsy and I had great fun exploring these movies, in particular because he’s never seen a Spaghetti Western or Shaw Brothers film! If you haven’t either, it’s never too late! Check out The East Meets the West and listen to what you’ve been missing!
