Godawful! I want my hour and a half back!!!
19 December 2004 | by (The House of Good Schlock) – See all my reviews

This stupid movie is about a group of guys who get stranded on an island run by Ms. Frankenstein (her name is really Van Helsing, but she hates to use her real name (?!) They get tangled up with lots of island freaks and a guy who could be Frankenstein's monster at the end of the film. What irritates me most is to feel ripped off when I watch a flick, so when top-billed John Carradine only shows up in dreamy flashbacks and Cameron Mitchell only has a few lines I was thoroughly let down. I was also astonished that anybody would want to waste good expensive film on such nothing. The "evil guy with a loud laugh" gave me a headache. Not even good camp, just a wasted one hour and a half of my life. I want my life back!!!
