Trivia

It was Roger Corman's practice when going on location to make the most of that location by shooting a second film. This film was made because Corman was in Puerto Rico to shoot Creature from the Haunted Sea (1961). See more »

Goofs

Despite the fact that all oxygen was supposed to have run out, two birds can clearly be seen flying past when the three survivors first go down to the beach. See more »

mostly cerebral action
26 April 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

A setting resulting from sci-fi; but heavy philosophizing in the vast majority of the film: Ev becomes the last woman on earth - well, at least, in Puerto Rico, where she is vacationing with her gambling-addicted, workaholic, material-oriented, not-quite-above-board husband, Harold; and their free-spirited lawyer friend, Martin. They emerge from a scuba-diving session and gradually realize that everyone else on the island - perhaps globally - has suffocated from a mysterious (but impermanent) breach of the oxygen supply. From this point, it is a psychological study of the differing priorities of the three characters. Viewers who are interested in interpreting some varieties of human behavior will find THAT in this movie. Others, however, may prefer more of the type of action which will NOT be found here.
