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 »

Excellent music and ugly zombies. Super vintage gross-outs!
19 December 2006 | by Akzidenz_GroteskSee all my reviews

A great late-night horror flick with action and comedy. I got it on DVD from a St. Claire 3-Disc collection called "The Living Dead".

It's a better than average directed (for a B-movie) tale with a swinging Voodoo-Lounge soundtrack, ghoulish zombies galore and a charismatic "wolf" lead character played brilliantly by the late William Joyce.

Some interesting trivia I've learned: Bill Joyce and the female lead, Heather Hewitt, had unwittingly done a scene in the water during a real life "multiple-large-sharks-spotted" scare. Director Del Tenney never told them about it when he later learned of it.

Interesting look at the cocktail culture in 1960s Miami in this one.

This movie's release-date title is "I Eat your Skin" which is a masterpiece of naming. I give it 10 stars for vintage kicks and William Joyce's cool persona! Must've been a fun actor be around.
