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.

atmospheric and entertaining film
10 April 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a nice and well made B-movie and surprisingly it works quite well. It's not one of those B-movies that are just plain boring. The story, a take on the classic Count Zaroff, is well told- although at times fairly gruesome for the early 60s (though my edition states 59 as year of origin). The acting is surprisingly competent and even the sets are fairly convincing. All in all it may not be a stroke of genius but it's and atmospheric and entertaining film. There are great performances, partivularly the diabolic and theatrical villain but the rest of the cast are really quite good. The interesting thing is that this film is sort of a teenage version of Count Zaroff and therefore actually pre dates the genre of teen horror flics. Absolutely watchable and entertaining.
