Storyline

In the 17th century, a village was the refuge of several French buccaneers. One day, the Spanish under the command of Guzmán, attacked the village and killed everybody, adults and children alike, Two brothers, who were wild kids, escaped because they were absent to play away from their parents; on their return home, they saw the end of the carnage, and vowed revenge. As adults, they made their name feared by the Maracaïbo Spanish colonists. Yet, jealousy made them fall apart of each other, and eventually one brother died - so the other would survive and be happy with the woman they loved. Written by Artemis-9

User Reviews

I saw this theatrically as "Guns of the Black Witch".
22 November 1999 | by Hup234!See all my reviews

Great title, right? But it was poorly dubbed, and the plot was confused, though there were some good action scenes. I also recall that the ship of the title, the Black Witch, was hardly even mentioned in the storyline, and that tells me that this film was likely a lot better in its original version, which translates out to "The Terror of the Seas". Somewhere this film is still out there, and if it becomes available in subtitles, see it.
