CHANDU AND THE ISLAND OF LEMURIA

Bela Lugosi plays the good magician Chandu in his only role as the hero in a movie! In this rare film, now fully restored and digitally enhanced, Chandu travels to the island of Lemuria to rescue a kidnapped Egyptian princess named Nadji (Maria Alba) from the black magic cult of the Ubasti, who believe that she is the reincarnation of their long-dead goddess Ossana. With his family also held for sacrifice in ancient temples on the island, Chandu must discover the way through an endless maze of caverns, shrouded from his own powers by the evil priest Vindhyan’s dark forces. It’s a battle between white and black magic as Chandu must escape the many terrors that await him on the remarkable island of Lemuria. This restored and enhanced 1934 film comes with trailers, retro-commercials and more!
