Description by OLDIES.com:
Some eight months after the release of Freaks
, another bizarre and unforgettable movie stunned screen audiences -- the feverish tale of black magic and sadism called Kongo
. Reprising his stage role, dynamic Walter Huston stars as wheelchair-bound Flint, a ruthless, would-be jungle chieftain who uses the bullets of "boom sticks" and the deception of parlor magic he calls juju to keep African locals in his thrall while carrying out a long-festering plan of revenge against the man who beat and crippled him.
Brutality, sexuality, depravity -- all are at the forefront of this disturbing yet transfixing pre-Code shocker previously filmed as the Lon Chaney-Lionel Barrymore silent West of Zanzibar.
Theatrical Movie Untamed Africa. Join the Hubbard Family -- father, mother and two small children -- on safari. Encounter giraffes, hippos, leopards and crocodiles; share the terror when a grass fire engulfs the Hubbards' camp; share the fun when pet monkeys join the expedition; and witness a hyena/lioness battle and a heart-stopping lion attack on the Hubbards' oxen.
