They end up in a small, Indian, distressed village where the people believe that evil spirits have taken all their children away after a sacred precious stone was stolen.

Thuggee is beginning to attempt to rise once more, believing that with the power of all five Sankara stones they can rule the world. Now, it’s all up to Indiana to put an end to the Thuggee campaign, rescue the lost children, win the girl and conquer the Temple of Doom.

Interesting premise. First half was good, second half was dead boring. Jesus, what a waste of time that was. Did this film win an award for ‘most screams in one film’? Also, you can only have so many insects and disgusting meals in ten minutes before it totally loses its effect. Willie was sometimes nice but mostly annoying. Really liked Harrison Ford in this one.
Only the romantic cues of the score appealed to me and the recording badly needs some reverb.
