Storyline

Two men escaping the police by ship are blown off course by a typhoon and shipwrecked on an uncharted island populated by women who make a living diving for pearls. What the men don't know is that the women are also part of a shark cult that sacrifices young virgins to the sharks in the surrounding ocean in order to appease the shark gods.

Trivia

When Roger Corman needed to travel to shoot a film on location, he would put together a second feature that could be shot at the same location. This film was shot on the same location as Naked Paradise (1957). American International put this on the shelf for a year and a half before using it as part of one of their pre-packaged double features with Night of the Blood Beast (1958). See more »

Quotes

Chris, alias Christy Johnston: I thought I saw something *just* inside the reef.
Queen Pua: That is home of shark god Tangaroa. That place taboo. Shark god angry long time now. Bring many bad storms, much bad fortune.
Chris, alias Christy Johnston: Well he certainly didn't bring *us* any luck. Is there anything we can do to get him in a better humor?
Queen Pua: Tangaroa... angry.

True to Corman form.
27 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two men escape from police, only to be stranded on a corporate owned native island (?) where superstitious women worship a shark god. Mayhem and Hawaiian clothing ensue.

As with many Roger Corman movies, I found this movie to be entertaining despite bottom of the barrel production values. He also paces the film reasonably, not wasting any time on unnecessary material. A very short running time results.

However, I can only recommend it to Corman fans, or to fans of low budget tropical island movies. Those looking for horror or sci-fi won't find it here.
