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

Macklin and the German guard are fighting in the laboratory. The fight has several sequences in which there are stunt doubles. The problem is that both stunt doubles hair doesn't even come close to matching who they are portraying. Their hair is sandy blond instead of brown. See more »

Richard E. Cunha made few good low budget B movies. This movie otherwise could have been utterly forgettable, isn't due to his ability to select actors who could act, and his ability to keep the story going without falling apart.
While not at the success level of Roger Corman's B movies, Cunha's movies has similar quality that keeps them from being an utter schlock. This movie is about the same level of story as Roger Corman's "Wasp Woman". Both focus' on intrigue of beautiful woman turning into a monster.
This movie stayed with me since I saw it as a child because of the transformance scene of the above mentioned beautiful woman. Three characters that told most of the stories to this movie, namely the blond girl, the main character, and the Nazi captain could all act. This kept the story together and didn't go the way of other similarly budgeted movies.
They could have inserted another 10 minutes of skin exposures by the girls, and tormenting of the girl that was on the operating table, and the movie could have been twice as good, but if they did that they might have blown the budget or ran overtime against the double feature movie that these movies were usually shown in theaters.
One of the hidden classic amongst the truly low budget movies from the '50s. If you're a fan of Roger Corman's earlier movies, this movie might be for you.
