You call this unpleasant dream a three-hour tour?, 24 May 2013
Author: Lee Eisenberg (lee.eisenberg.pdx@gmail.com) from Portland, Oregon, USA

The title "I Eat Your Skin" should identify that this is a grade-Z flick. Specifically, it's the type that only "MST3K", Joe Bob Briggs or Elvira could present. I saw Elvira's presentation. The Mistress of the Dark's commentary made the movie watchable, and she even included a tribute to "Gilligan's Island"! The movie itself is about a Caribbean island inhabited by zombies. Not zombies like we know the term nowadays, but people manipulated to carry out someone's orders. But nonetheless, it's one of the most misbegotten movies ever made. Terrible to the point of being hilarious (quite a few of those flicks).

So, just watch Elvira's version and you're sure to have fun...here on Voodoo Isle! Unpleasant dreams!
