Storyline

Teenagers Reg, Skip, Julie and Pam go out for an afternoon of water skiing on a nice day. They come ashore on an island that is being used as a testing center for a scientist and agents from "an eastern power." They seek to turn the people of the United States into easily controlled zombie like creatures. The agents steal Reg's boat, stranding the teens on the island. The four friends are then held captive in cages able only to speculate on their fate. Though they have already been testing the formula on convicts and drunks, the enemy scientist and agents plan to conduct final tests on the teens before they use it on the rest of America. Meanwhile, two of their friends, whom the captives had planned to meet later, search for their missing friends. After a series of suspicious encounters, they urge the corrupt sheriff to search the island where their friends are trapped. Written by Jim Cobb <gymcobb@azstarnet.com>

One of the better gorilla/malt shop movies
12 April 2009 | by (Central Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

A fine film meant for conness sewers of island mad scientist atomic zombie stinko schmaltz. A very good looking cast of actual teens competing for good hair, bad acting moments. The one dark haired boy who looks youngest is probably the best of the lot. The gorilla suit probably cost as much as the script. Nothing. So you have some poison gas that isn't the kind of poison that kills you. A deputy who peeks out of a window. The sheriff has a hat. Nobody has a dog. There is no music on the jukebox. There's an island and some boats and a guy with glasses. I hope I'm not giving away too much. Oh wait. I almost forgot. There is a 1954 Ford. Really. An Army or Air Force guys says something to someone. He has a 1957 Ford. You are gonna love it. I don't know how Kevin Costner missed being cast in this one. The house has a kitchen with a big cooler and no bathroom. The working title was "Teen Agers with Bad Agents." Guns and stuff too. Rumor is it was directed by someone and released.
