Night of the Living Deadlegs

He rules with a bag of old tricks
This ghoul that no magic can fix
By hatred he's powered
By its weight's near devoured
It's the cruelest, most tragic of flicks.

Walter Huston as "Deadlegs" Flint in Kongo (William J. Cowen; 1932) This remake of West of Zanzibar (1928) attempts to outdo the Lon Chaney original in depravity.
