Synopsis: This remake of West of Zanzibar (1928) made four years later tries to outdo the Lon Chaney original in morbidity. From a wheelchair a handicapped white man rules an area of Africa as a living god. He rules the local natives through superstition and stage magic and he rules the few white people through sadism, keeping them virtual prisoners. He lives for the day he can avenge himself horribly on the man who stole his wife and crushed his spine. Strong and macabre stuff in a nearly forgotten horror film.
Genre: Drama, Horror
Director(s): William J. Cowen
Production: MGM
86 min



, Cookie!

, Go see who it is!

- , Go see who it is!

- ? Who?? I?

, S , t!

, Come back there!

- Who to come?

- , Come back there!

The big boss came through

the forest to talk to you.


- What was his path?

- Less than one moon.

It's fine, send it to me.

And welcome him.

Cast the rest of those

children out of my entrance.

Do you speak to me?

,Come on! Wait a minute.

Thinking better, we will give

each one a piece of sugar.

I learned this

observing the missionaries.

It takes a lifetime to

Christianize a native...

and I can undo everything in

two minutes with a sugar cube.

Times are changing.

I never saw the chief come

here unless you called him.

- Do you know what I think?

- No, and I do not care.

You are discovering

our cheap magic.

Black magic for the Womba.

, For the Womba!

I think maybe another new

white man would come, huh?

Before you see another white man the quinine

and water will run through your veins.

, Not even you will be interested!

Cor name... "Queen of May".

With all the men you've met, have

you ever seen an Adonis like that?

Smile, little rat in the forest, smile.

- Are you already preparing your things?

- , Yes, hurry!

The old boss has said that

Gregg communicated...

that he would give him 50 fangs if he

allowed him to trade within Yuyu's circle.


make great talk.



great yuyu.

I hate seeing good gin wasted

on that parched monkey.

That's not gin, I gave it to her.

It's kerosene.

He saved us by the hair, Chief.

- When I want your compliments I will ask for them.

- You duped them.

Catch t too.

I told him that Gregg was

at the bottom of this.

, 50 ivory tusks!

, For 1,000 ivory tusks...

I could not go into the circle

anymore than you can get out!

I'm getting very nostalgic!

As nostalgic as Scotland

Yard is for you.

Why do not you hand out the

ivory as you said you would...

and we get out of here?

You can always promise to take me to

Zanzibar and buy me bracelets and bracelets.

Oh, stop whining!

Save those things.

Close the doors.

A month closer, Gregg.

You're almost at the

end of your rope.

With his foot in my

column, he scoffed.

You are not as popular with

the king as you were before.

Cookie, bring me a cigarette.

Do not you think he's

smarter than us?

,Do not!

I know men.

Give me the "grandma"

which you stole.

He learned that I stole

it and returned it.

This is what I got.

I would like to have seen

him when he did it to you.

I've never seen him

whip a white man.

It is as big as a demon.

, You do not have your guts!

I have half a bottle.

Enough for you and for me.

Why do you let him

intimidate you like that?

Why do not you spit

on his forehead?

Well, it's bigger than me.

But one of these days I'll get it.

My little bat!

You have the courage of a lion!

I have some liquor, but I was

not going to tell that guy.

When they both sleep,

I'll sneak up the stairs.

I do not and I in the

light of the moon.

I am going. I go wherever it is with you.

When you stroke my head like...

I feel like a kitten...

with her belly full of milk.


I wonder what would happen to

you if "dead legs" found out.

Go back to your kennel.

Enough so that I and

I have a good drink.

And that makes us forget.

, You pray them first!

Come here.


I want you to upload.

, He loves you!

Why nobody...

It has been up there...


, Maybe they are!

, Maybe never come down!

,Goes up!

,Goes up!

, Climb that rope!

Well, you've always wanted to

know why I was here so long.

I created a yuyu with the natives

to form a circle of 130 Kms...

where no white or black man

could enter or leave...

without my authorization.

Well, I'm going to tell

you because I need you.

I'm going to let you

out of the circle.

- They are gone.

- But they will come back.

You're going to Cape Town, to a convent

and you're going to bring a girl here.

- ? A girl?

- A woman.

Old enough to realize

what is happening to him.

For 18 years I have built

a fence around you.

A clean environment

in body and soul...

preparing it for this.

You're going to bring

her back to her father.

A pr spera plantation of rubber.

She will be anxious

enough to come!

He did not write to me any

clingy and maudlin letters...

full of desire to

see his father.

,His father!

,His father!

Does that mean he's going to

bring his own daughter here?

My daughter, not his, the

man who stole my wife.

The man who kicks my column.

, The man who mocks!

, I know I became...

half man!

But I followed them.

She died without recognizing me.

I caught the baby.

His baby, and he followed him.

Once I reached it.

Why do not I kill him?

Why would I give

him a godly death?

That is what I expected.

, You will suffer all that I have suffered!

You're flesh and blood, Gregg!

Degraded, corrupted!

, Your name burning from

Camer n to Zanz bar!

- Gregg?

- That's why I lived here.

, That's why I

lived in this mud!

, Rubbing your nose with

those dirty natives!

, Making my religion my own!

, Being part of them!

, Everything to be able to

live on its own threshold...

without him being able to see me!

Do you understand?

When do you want me to leave?

As soon as we get porters.

I could take some of

our ivory and sell it.

Oh, no, friend...

There are tons of ivory down...

and half will be yours

when you bring her here.

But suppose she does not come.

I have planned all the details.

You are a great friend of your father.

A missionary from Rhodesia.

This will be your appearance.

We're going to miss Ann a lot.

How will I miss her!

But finally I'm going to see my father.

I'll be waiting for

you with open arms.

All these years, dear friend...

He has been killing

himself to work...

to be able to provide...

the sweetness of life to your child.

I have always wondered why

he has never come to see me.

I will never forget the beautiful letter

I wrote to this convent 10 years ago...

explaining that, with God's help, he

was fertilizing the world, alone.

You, as a missionary, Mr. Babcock,

he will realize the

difficulties that means.

Yes, it's true.

But we can be happy...

what your father, and my friend,

has conquered for civilization.

Well, I have to go and

say goodbye to everyone.

I hope my father loves me.

Fuzzy, listen to Big Boss.

Morning moon in Pantano Eight

Palmos come great convoy.

Great convoy Gregg.

A lot of ivory.

No white boss.

I do not speak.

"Ozeebee", great devil.

Scare a lot of black boys.

Big Boss send porters

to bring ivory.

- Not speak.

- Not speak.

Big Boss eyes on

Fuzzy all the time.

, Hide in forest!

Come here!

, Hurry!

T pillar...

white tongue.

I caught a lot of white tongue.

- Do not talk?

- Not speak.

Do not give me much sugar.

A lot of smoke stick.

Much exchange.

The Big Boss gives you...

- Do not talk, huh?

- Not speak.

I give you
