The movie The Ghost and the Darkness is a true story set in Africa which I would give a four-star rating Colonel John Patterson of Britain is sent to Tsavo in Uganda to build a bridge over the Tsavo river for a railroad to cross over As soon as he arrives a man is attacked by a lion and wounded but not killed That night he killed a lion on the first shot and things were calm for awhile Things are peaceful for awhile until Mahina the foreman is dragged out of his tent at night by a lion and killed Killings began to happen more frequently and it was found that two lions were guilty of the killings Abdullah and the workers threatened to leave but Patterson promised to kill the lions and straighten things out The natives began calling the lions the ghost and the darkness believing they were evil spirits After Patterson could not come through on his promise Abdullah and the rest of the workers blamed the problems on Patterson and were becoming threatening This is when Remington shows up with the Massai tribe of hunters Remington and Patterson have little success and the Massai tribe leaves believing that the lions are not lions but that they are the ghost and the darkness The last slaughter occurs in the hospital and after this the workers flee Tsavo By this time the lions had killed over 100 people On a night hunt Remington kills the first of the lions That very night he is dragged out of his tent and killed in a nearby field The next day Patterson kills the other lion At the end of the movie the workers return and Patterson is reunited with his wife and his newborn son who were in Britain
