The title was changed to "I Eat Your Skin" (1970).See more »

OK for a rainy afternoon, 15 April 2007
Author: sgtking from United States

I've almost rented this film several times. By looking at the box I knew it wouldn't be a classic, but something about it appealed to me. Maybe it was the creepy looking zombie on the cover. Maybe it was because I love movies about zombies on a tropical island. Or maybe it's simply because I love b horror movies. Either way I wanted to see it and finally did when my mom bought me a 3 DVD set with 9 living dead films, including this one.

Pros: Moves along at an OK pace. The scenery is lush and beautiful. The zombie make-up isn't too bad, considering how long ago this was made and low the budget probably was. The zombies are pretty creepy. The whole movie has a certain campy and nostalgic charm.

Cons: The title is misleading. There is no eating of flesh. Some of the dubbing is poor and off at times. Some poor editing. The score isn't bad, but most of the time it doesn't seem to fit with this movie. Much of the acting is bad. An obvious model near the end.

Final thought: Originally called Zombies and not released for six years, this low budget zombie flick is far from being a great film. It is however a must for drive-in movie fans and those looking for some cheesy fun.

My rating: 2/5
