East africa, 1896. Two lions on a man-eating rampage have shut down the construction of a railway. Big-game hunter remington and construction engineer patterson set out to stop these unstoppable monsters. But in this astonishing tale of man vs.. Beast, the hunters become the hunted.
Editor's Note
Based on a true story, THE GHOST AND THE DARKNESS takes place in Africa during the late 1890s and concerns two ferocious lions who killed 130 railroad construction workers in only two months. A pair of courageous men, no-nonsense engineer John Patterson (Val Kilmer) and rugged hunter Charles Remington (Michael Douglas), set out to shoot the creatures, known as the Ghost and the Darkness. Making their task even harder is the two animals un-lionlike behavior--they kill in tandem, attack in the daylight, and show no fear of anything. Soon the hunters become the hunted....
