Romance and plenty of danger in the Caribbean
21 April 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

This obscure and rarely seen movie is the first from good old Mr BIG and in colour too. I quite enjoyed watching Serpent Island.

A woman sets out to a remote Caribbean island to search for some treasure that used to be her great-grandfather's which is hidden there. Two of the men on the ship she is on, including the Captain fall in love with her and they fall out over this. There are plenty of dangers as well both on and off the ship: a storm, sharks and on the island: unfriendly natives, voodoo and, best of all, "giant" snakes. These snakes are actually real ones and are not enlarged as you would expect to see in a Mr BIG movie. After managing to escape from the natives, the woman finds the treasure and then fights a snake which the Captain kills. The other man then appears and he is killed by a snake and the Captain now plans to marry the woman and they set off home.

The cast is mostly made up of unknowns and the only name I am familiar with is Sonny Tufts (Cat-Women of the Moon).

Watching Serpent Island is a good way to spend an hour one afternoon or evening. Enjoyable.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
