Storyline

A group of teen-agers vacationing in the tropics take a boat out to a seemingly deserted island. They soon find, however, that the island is inhabited by a wealthy recluse and his staff. While their host is initially hospitable, he quickly reveals his true purpose: to hunt down and kill each of his visitors, as he has done with everyone unlucky enough to set foot on his island.

Quotes

Johnny Randall: You mean you hunted those people down? Then killed them, and did *that* to them?
Dr. Albert Balleau: Exactly. I hunted them. And shall I tell you why? I'd been a scholar all my life. I was curator of a large museum. And the war began. I who had never killed anything in my life assigned to duty as a sniper - a sharpshooter - because of my steady hand and keen eyesight.
[chuckles]
Dr. Albert Balleau: It amuses me now that I found it distasteful at first. And as time went by I adjusted my new activity. For what had been an unpleasant ...

I like this movie!
20 February 2003 | by (The Imperial Earth State) – See all my reviews

I first saw this on TV when I was a kid, and I think it's too good to be deserving of the MST3K treatment. It might be a "The Most Dangerous Game" rip-off, but it was targeted towards teens in the drive-in era, and I think it works.

It's worth the watch just to see the pre-Brady Bunch Robert Reed and the suave Wilton Graff, whose coolly underplayed madman is chilling. I've recommended it to friends in the non-'bots version, and they all thought well of it.

Great ending, too!
