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 »
Although the island is supposedly inhabited by only a small group of sarong-clad women with primitive watercraft, an early scene of an outrigger canoe in the bay shows many power-driven motorboats speeding along in the background near the horizon. See more »
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.
