The Terror of the Tongs

The Terror of the Tongs

The Terror of the Tongs (1961) is a Hammer Film starring Geoffrey Toone, Christopher Lee and Yvonne Monlaur.

The film is a quasi-remake of Hammer's Stranglers of Bombay from 1959. The setting is changed to Hong Kong in 1910 from India in the 1800's but the basic plot of a middle-aged hero attempting to uncover the crimes of a secret sect in a British colony, being captured by the sect, and later released, having a personal stake in the outcome ,finding that there is an inside villain, and losing friends or family are all there.

The low-budget film is distinguished by good color photography and an interesting performance by Christopher Lee as Chung King, the aphorism-quoting leader of the Hong Kong division of The Red Dragon Tong.
