Late 80'S Or Early 90'S Horror Movie

Looking for a horror film from mid to late 80's possibly very early 90's.

A guy, blonde and maybe mid 30's moves into a boarding house (I think) ran by an older woman and her teenage daughter and they're both attracted to him. he kills the daughter and throws a party which the mother attends and the meat is actually the daughter. i think there was an African theme to it, he worshiped something and wore a witch doctor type mask (African Tribal). I also remember a tiger.  there was possibly also a scene where a homeless man eats some seeds and a tree bursts out of him, but  i think I'm confusing that with another film. 

The daughter was blond, busty and attractive, the type that was very common in 80's horrors. I can also remember some sort of trap, like a finger trap but bigger and that is what killed the daughter.

Its not the Stepfather, this wasn't a slasher.
