Synopsis for "I Learned the Monstrous Secret of Bombu!"
Two men flying over the Amazon lose control of their plane and are taken from the crash site by natives to their witch doctor, Bombu. Bombu claims he is an immortal alien who landed on Earth long ago to gather information for an invasion. The men scoff at Bombu's story, angering him and provoking him to demonstrate his various powers. However, the men are still sceptical, thinking that they are being hypnotized to see things that aren't there. Bombu loses patience and creates a bottomless pit with which to destroy them, but at that fatal moment, he is struck by lightning and killed. The superstitious natives take this as a sign that the two men possess greater power than Bombu and guide them to safety.
