"I have never had power, and I've never known love." Following World War I, a French expedition goes to Cambodia to either learn the secret of making and controlling zombie soldiers, or destroy the knowledge so that it doesn't fall into the hands of the enemy. After being used and discarded by the woman he loves, a timid linguist discovers the power to create mindless servants in the temples of Angkor and decides that his days of being meek and trampled on are over. Unfortunately, his mind control can't make the object of his affections love him back, which leads him down the path of self destruction. Pretty poor in most regards, with a ridiculous amount of hokey rear projection imagery.
