An enjoyable, but hard to get hold of adventure
19 April 2002 | by chris_gaskin123See all my reviews

The Killer Leopard is one of the later Bomba movies Johnny Sheffield appeared in. He was in his twenties when he starred in this.

In this one he helps a movie star, played by Beverley Garland (It Conquered the World), to look for her husband in the jungle. He is on the run after committing several crimes in Britain. The search though is hampered by a rather unfriendly black leopard which seems to enjoy killing people. Bomba does kill it at the end though and the movie star successfully finds her husband, after some of his party are killed.

I was lucky to obtain a copy of this movie as it is quite rare to get hold of, as are all of the Bomba movies.

Watch this if you get the chance. I quite enjoyed it.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
