Curse of Simba, also known as Voodoo Blood Death, is a 1965 British supernatural horror film set in Africa but filmed in England in 18 days. The film was cut by several minutes and released as Curse of the Voodoo in the United States where it was double billed with Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster.

Plot

When white hunter Mike Stacey kills a lion in Simbazi country in Africa, he is cursed by the tribal chief. When the curse that manifests itself with hallucinations follows him to England he consults an expert on the subject. The expert informs Stacey the only way to remove the curse is to return to Africa and personally kill the man who put it on him.

Production

As a follow up to Devil Doll (1964) producer Richard Gordon and director Lindsay Shonteff selected a completed screenplay by Brian Clemens originally titled The Lion Man for their star Bryant Haliday. Though set in Africa, the film was economically shot in black and white with outdoor sequences filmed in London's Regent's Park and the use of stock footage of African fauna.

The movie was originally budgeted at £35,000 and meant to be shot in four weeks, but because of poor weather ended up being completed a week over schedule and £15,000 over budget.
