In Dance of Terror Dudar associates pure martial arts movement with wider contexts. His earlier Penetrated films were based on one-on-one martial arts sparring. In Dance of Terror the sparring expands into two-on-one confrontations. And sequences are inter cut with quotes from art, socio-political, and martial arts texts. “The spirit of defeating a man is the same for ten million men.” Miyamoto Musashi, The Way of Strategy.

The concepts initiated in
Dance of Terror reached finality in Dudar’s subsequent films The Dogs of Dance and DP.

Re-mastered in 2014.
