The Devil Came from Akasava is based on the short story Keepers of the Stone in the collection Sanders of the River by Edgar Wallace,[1] and forming a part of exotic stories on the fictional indigenous people of the Akasava. It is a late example of Edgar Wallace film adaptations that were particularly popular in Germany during the 1960s.

The lead actress Soledad Miranda was killed in a car accident in Portugal soon after finishing this film.


Prof. Walter Forrester is a British scientist working in the Akasava jungle in South America.[2] His assistant finds a mysterious stone, but it is stolen and Forrester vanishes, leaving him as the sole suspect. However, after a Scotland Yard detective is murdered while entering Forrester's office in London, the Scotland Yard chief Sir Philipp hands the case to Jane Morgan, an attractive agent, while given its international priority, Secret Intelligence Service will be on the case. Now, on a secret mission and with double identity as the young stripper wife of the British consul Irving Lambert, Morgan arrives in South America. Meanwhile, she meets Rex Forrester, professor's nephew, who is also concerned of his fate and arrives in the country for further investigation.



TV guide found it was a "Campy espionage tale".[3] A review at Horror News stated, "Anyone familiar with Franco’s career knows that his films tend to be loaded with nudity and skirts the edges of being porn. Luckily, he toned down the sexual elements to fall in line to what was standard for James Bond-inspired films. However, toned down does not mean excised."[4]
