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.

Trouble in Paradise
27 April 2004 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** Extremely corny but entertaining movie about a group of Nazi storm troopers occupying a Caribbean island in 1958 with a bunch of She Demons running around, if their not behind bamboo bars, doing their worst.

The Nazis leader Dr. Karl Olser, Rudolph Anders, has been experimenting with the women on the island in order to get their skin somehow grafted on his wife Mona, Leni Tana, who was terribly burned some time ago in an accident in Dr.Olser's lab. The doctor is also working on a way to create a perpetual energy machine for the Fatherland by harnessing the heat of the lava from a volcano on the island. Unknown to him is that his beloved Fatherland an Fuehrer have been kaput since 1945. There's also a plan for the USAF to bomb the island back into the Atlantic Ocean by using it as target practice.

A South Atlantic hurricane sweeps up a group of unsuspecting Americans on the island consisting of Irish McCalla, Jerrie Turner, Tod Griffin, Fred Malkin, Sen Young, Sammy Ching, and Chris Kamana, Charles Opunui, and that begin to interfere with Dr. Olser's plans.

As Jerrie Fred and Sammy check out the inner island Chris who stayed behind on the beach is attacked and killed by a gang of She Demons. This makes the trio go inland to avoid the deadly She Creatures only to find the Nazi base-camp where Jerrie, who was checking out Dr. Olser's lab, is captured by Igor Gene Roth, Dr. Olser's right-hand man. When Igor get a little too friendly with Jerrie Fred springs to her rescue and in the fighting knocks Igor into a cage of She Demons who gorge poor Igor to death.

Unbelievably bad acting especially by Irish McCalla who seems to think that she's doing a photo-shoot for Cosmopolitan Magazine and shows about as much fear of the Nazis and She Demons on the island as if she were afraid that the bad side of her face. I didn't notice anything bad on either sides of Irish's face, was being photographed.

Rudolph Anders is so ridicules as Dr. Olser that he seemed drunk in almost all of his scenes, which were totally outrageous, just to get enough courage to do them. In one famous scene with Jerrie Dr.Olser tried to get her drunk with a bottle of champagne only to end up drinking the entire bottle by himself and then having Jerrie smash it over his head.

Sammy, Sen Young, who was supposed to be the comic relief in the movie overdid it so much that he almost had the Nazi storm troopers cracking up and falling all over the place by his antics when they were supposed to act mean and evil.

Tod Griffin thought that he was doing Shakespeare and overacted so much in his scene in Dr. Olser's lab throwing out lines like "Please I beg of you do what you want with us but please, please leave the girl alone" Where at the same time Dr. Olser acted like Griffin was just a fly on the wall instead of being impressed by his golden oratory.

Just when Dr. Olser was to stick Jerrie with the needle the USAF blasted the island to pieces. The bombing activated the volcano who's lava flow followed by earthquakes engulfed and killed Dr. Olser and his wife Mona and the whole crew on Nazis and She Demons. Jerrie Fred and Sammy get to the beach and finding a rowboat row to safety, some 300 miles away to the US mainland, with a story that nobody would believe not even themselves.
