Gory and goofy

This is one of those oddball sci-fi/horror low budget gore-fests that were common in the '80's. In some ways, it's actually effective at the scares (such as the camp fire scene), and in other places, it's ripe tripe for some MST3K-type riffing (don't know if they ever did this one, but it would have fit right in on that show).

Cruise ships have had their share of problems lately, and apparently it wasn't any different in 1985. A distressed cruise ship drops off passengers into life boats, one of which drifts its way to a harmless looking island. The ship wreck survivors soon find out that the shipwreck was just the beginning of their nightmare.

The indigenous locals are not great hosts. They're cannibal pygmies that look scary at night, and hilariously silly in daylight. And they're hungry since it's been a while since their last food supply of ship wrecked cruise ship tourists ran out some time ago. They resemble zombies in their attacks but can dart around much faster. They also have weird faces. And they have an idol; this to me was one of the funniest scenes.

It's a battle for survival, complete with a clichéd loud mouth character, questionable acting skills, unwise close-up shots of the pygmies, screaming by pretty girls, and lots of bloodied and mauled victims. The format is a typical "getting picked off one at a time" piece, but works even though it's obvious who's next each time.

Very entertaining, whichever way you approach it: as a cheap scares low budget horror flick, or a laugh riot at where the low budget is most obvious.
