Chandu On The Magic Island / Return Of Chandu, The (2 Pack)
Chandu On The Magic Island
Battling on the high seas to protect beautiful Princess Nadji (Maria Alba) from Vindhyna's vicious grasp, Chandu (Bela Lugosi) lands his yacht on the strange island of Sutra. Nadji is mysteriously teleported to the high priest's temple on Lemuria where she is prepared for sacrifice.
Chandu and his crew chase after her, but their boat is destroyed by raging natives leaving them shipwrecked. The castaways now face annihilation by cannibals and the cult's evil priests whose Black Magic has weakened Chandu's own powers.
Creeping along a shadowy maze of menacing passageways beneath the temple, Chandu confronts torturous threats in his frantic quest to find Nadji. Mustering all the mystical he can to stop her murder, Chandu is strengthened by his love for the terrorized princess.
Chandu on Magic Island is one of the two features compiled from the serial Return of Chandu, notable for presenting the usually villainous Bela Lugosi as a hero and romantic lead. Lugosi is best remembered for his role as Count Dracula, exuding a seductive aura of mystery that made him American film's most suave personification of pure evil.
Return Of Chandu
Chandu (Bela Lugosi) fights the evil of Black Magic to save a beautiful Egyptian princess from human sacrifice. Taking refuge in Chandu's home, Princess Nadji (Maria Alba) unwittingly raises a poison cup to her lips when an invisible Chandu snatches it from her, foiling diabolical sorcerer Vindhyna (Lucien Prival). The cult leader's minions eventually drag the hapless beauty away in a mummy's casket.
Using his powerful powers, Chandu rescues Nadji and carries her off to the South Seas. Unfortunately, Vindhyna has stowed away on Chandu's yacht undetected. Even more alarming, their destination is the secret island home of a notorious sect of cat worshippers, spelling doom for the princess.
