Trivia

At the time of shooting Key Biscayne was considered largely jungle, and many cast and crew members came down with health problems during production. In addition, in the scene where William Joyce rescues 'Heather Hewitt' (q) from a bay inlet, four of the largest sharks in the area were seen in the bay. Director Del Tenney says he never did tell the actors. See more »

Boy What A Stinker
25 February 2003 | by wilburscottSee all my reviews

I've seen bad movies, but none quite as bad as this "I Eat Your Flesh". I feel sorry for the people who went to the drive-ins in the 1970's and had to watch this on a double bill with the far superior "I Drink Your Blood". Best I can say of that situation, plenty of make-out time in the back of the car while this dismal dreck plays.
