Wu Tang Clan Movies

I've been trying to track down the movies that the Wu-Tang Clan adopted their samples and names from, but I've been altogether unsuccessful in this venture. So maybe I should come to the professionals for help.

Any takers?

A lot of their samples come from:

Five Deadly Venoms
Shogun Assassin
The Killer
Master Of The Flying Guillotine

I haven't seen all these so I can't say for sure but here's one:

Here's a bunch that were released as part of a "Wu Tang Clan" collection. You can usually find these cheap at some stores (Hastings) or sometimes at rental stores. They're all VHS

Nah, those are all just old HK films that have been retitled to give them a tenuous "Wu Tang" connection to help sell more videos (most of them aren't exactly classics of the genre)

The films that FrankTheTank mentions are probably the best known examples of films that Wu Tang has sampled (and all 4 are great films). I'm not familar enough with alot of the group's songs to give some other film title examples.

As for names, Ghostface got his from the film MYSTERY OF CHESS BOXING, but I'm not sure about the others, off the top of my head.
