During the silicates' attack on the main building, the townspeople flee into a back room. However, several are trapped outside in the hall and scream to be let in. Seconds later, a silicate tentacle smashes through a door panel, implying those people screaming to be let in were killed. Yet, later, when the people in the room open the doors to see the silicates dead, not one single corpse is present. See more »
Is that all, then, Ian?
I think so. And how long will it take to fill the order, then, this time, eh?
Oh, probably three to four weeks.
Y'know, they ought to give us better service, and a boat coming once a week is not enough! You'd think at least they'd get our telephones installed.
Y'know, they promised 'em this year.
Aye, and last!

Silly and Funny Sci-Fi /Horror Movie of the Sixties
In the Pitkeys Island, located northeast of England close to Ireland, while Dr. Lawrence Phillips (Peter Forbes-Robertson) is researching a cure for the cancer in his laboratory, he accidentally creates a "silicate" creature that sucks human and animal bones. The local police officer finds the "boneless" body of a local and Dr. Reginald Landers (Eddie Byrne) calls Dr. Brian Stanley (Peter Cushing), a specialist in bones, who also invites Dr. David West (Edward Judd) to travel to the island to investigate the event. The girlfriend of Dr. West, Toni Merrill (Carole Gray), borrows his father's helicopter to bring the team to the island, and imposes the condition of staying with them. Together, they try to find a way of destroying the weird monsters with the support of the locals. "Island of Terror" is a silly and funny sci-fi / horror movie of the 60's, having very funny situations, such as when Dr. West puts his hysterical girlfriend in charge of calming down the local citizens; or when he amputates the hand of Dr. Stanley, who does not faint. The creatures are very creepy, considering that it is a 1966 movie, and in the end it is a good entertainment. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Ilha do Terror" ("The Island of Terror")
