Trivia

The movie has often been likened to a cross between H.G. Wells The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977) and the Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954). See more »

Goofs

The drawing of David Bushnell's 1775 submarine "Turtle" on the wall of the Professor's room is hung upside down. See more »

Alternate Versions

The out of print British video was trimmed for time reasons. Simply, the video company Vipco video cut the 99 minute film to fit on a 90 minute tape. Unlike their release of the Driller Killer which removed a 6 minute chunk for the same reasons, the cuts to Island of the Mutations are spread throughout the film- making it hard to work out exactly what's missing. However the tape is noticeably absent of Jose discovering the underground ship and being knocked out by Rackham's henchmen and Claude being beaten up, force-fed a Voodoo potion and suffering a nightmare.

Very entertaining.
8 September 2004 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

When a group of escaped convicts manage to flee to a remote island,they soon find that their new home is inhabited by a strangely menacing doctor(Richard Johnson of "Zombi 2" fame),a mad scientist(Joseph Cotten),his beautiful daughter(Barbara Bach)and a horde of superstitious natives.The tribesmen say that the doctor has created grotesque half-human,half-fish creatures for evil,secretive purposes.And though at first the prisoners do not believe this,as they disappear,one by one,they begin to change their minds."Screamers" is a very entertaining mix of "Mysterious Island" and "Humanoids from the Deep".There is plenty of gore with really cool decapitation scene and throat tearing to boost.The acting is so-so,but the film is fast-paced and entertaining.Give it a look.8 out of 10.
