Synopsis for “The Little Monsters”
A nephew visits his uncle on an African plantation to ask for help with his gambling debts. When the uncle refuses, he resolves to murder him for the inheritance. The plantation has flood gates installed to protect against the occasional swarms of deadly ants and the uncle asks the nephew if he would care to go out on the river with him to examine the progress of the ants. While on the river, he clouts the uncle over the head and dumps the body in the water, planning to claim it was a boating accident. When he gets back to shore, he realizes to his horror, that the ants have arrived. As the ants begin to swarm over him, he races to the floodgates to unlock them and keep the ant swarm back, but as he looks into the water the last sight he ever sees is his uncle’s body jamming the floodgates.
