Blood Debts is a 1983 Philippine action film directed by Teddy Page and starring Richard Harrison.


While enjoying a picnic, Sarah Collins (Catherine Miles) and her boyfriend (Tom Dulaney) are surprised by a gang of juvenile hunters. They rape her and kill him, but just before they are about to kill her she escapes and runs to her parents' house. The gang members shoot Sarah in front of her father, a wealthy Vietnam Vet (Richard Harrison) named Mark. The boys wound him seriously and leave.

A few months later, after his health has returned, Mark manages to find the murderers and kills each of them. He also keeps on walking the streets at night, looking for criminals in action to execute until his wife Yvette (Anne Jackson an English actress also starring with Richard Harrison in Hunter's Crossing and Fire Back) convinces him to stop. However, he has been observed by the henchmen of Bill (Mike Monty), an enigmatic businessman desiring to crush the local drug syndicate. Bill gives orders to kidnap Yvette and forces Mark to continue his vigilante work.

Mark eventually escapes, saves Yvette, and physically confronts Bill. After killing most of his henchmen, Mark is thrown to the ground and is about to be shot by Bill, but pulls out a flare gun and fires it at Bill, killing him.

Text played on the screen after the conclusion of the final screen informs the audience that Mark, aged 45, turned himself in to the police and is currently serving a life sentence.
