She Demons -- A hurricane, island castaways, dancing native girls, female monsters, Nazis, a mad scientist, weird surgical experiments and a volcano--all prime ingredients for horror exploitation films. Or, in the case of "She Demons," one horror exploitation film. This lively, lurid shocker from writer/director Richard E. Cunha managed the remarkable feat of cramming all of these plot elements into its 76-minute running time.

Did You Know?

Factual errors: Col. Osler says the temperature of the molten lava is over 65,000 degrees. Molten lava on the surface is 1200-2200 degrees and even at the earth's core the estimate is not much more than 10,000.See more »

She Demons (1958)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Three people wash up on an island where a crazy German doctor is turning beautiful women in deformed monsters. This film has gained a rather big cult following over the years due in large part to it falling into that "so bad it's good" category. The film contains a pretty bad screenplay, horrid acting and silly direction and when you add all of this up you're bound to get a few good laughs. The performances here are very bad, which is to be expected, but they're actually worse than what you normal see and this is where the majority of the laughs come from. The screenplay runs a bit short on ideas, which is the reason we get countless scenes with the girls dancing (very badly I might add) and being whipped for whatever reason. There's really not a single good thing in this film so if you like bad movies then you'll want to check it out.
