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.

A hidden B movie Classic, 21 November 2013
Author: ebiros2 from United States

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.
