Storyline

Heroic, but dull, Fred Maklin and beautiful, but spoiled, Jerrie Turner wash up on an uncharted tropical island. They are soon captured by ex-Nazi Colonel Osler, who also has imprisoned a bevy of beauty contest winners whom he allows to be whipped by his slavering Nazi storm troopers. He has, you see, been extracting some glandular substance from the girls to inject into his wife Mona, who suffered terrible facial disfigurement, in efforts to restore her beauty. Things get worse as the island is used for test bombing by the US Air Force. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Goofs

The German soldier gets pushed into the cage with the She-Demons. The impact forces the cage gate open, he is then attacked by the She-Demons with the gate still open. The camera cuts away and then back to the cage and now the gate is closed even though his body is in the same position. He is in the way of the swing of the gate, so it couldn't have closed.

silly tropical isle drive-in monster trash fun
15 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All right, it's cheese; add a little ham on white bread, and you got a sandwich with filling, if not much spice.

Very loosely based on "The Island of Dr. Moreau," this silly '50s drive-in aimed horror movie moves too well to be as bad as critics say. Nothing here makes any sense, but it's really background for pop-corn (and for that old '50s drive-in mating behavior, 'necking'). Making the villains fugitives from Nazi Germany is definitely a plus, because it adds to the senselessness of the mad doctor's 'experiments.' The 'dance of the natives' is stupid but enjoyably choreographed, and the babes are hot for their day.

Light-weight and generally inoffensive exploitation. Again, the pacing is the surprise - put your brain on hold and let it go through its B-movie paces, this won't bore you.
