An astronaut (Bill Rogers) crashes into the ocean where he eventually lands on Blood Island. This mysterious island has six beautiful women on it and they soon turn the man into their sex slave with plans on eventually killing him.
This film is also known as LOVE GODDESSES OF BLOOD ISLAND and was one of the first movies to try and cash-in on the explicit gore brought to the screen by Herschell Gordon Lewis and his film BLOOD FEAST. If you're a fan of the Lewis style of filmmaking then you'll certainly want to check this out even though the quality isn't nearly as good or entertaining as what stuff like COLOR ME BLOOD RED and TWO THOUSAND MANIACS delivered.
This film is out there in a couple different versions with one running twenty-seven minutes (an extra on a Something Weird Video disc) and a forty-seven minute version, which you can buy from Something Weird. I watched the longer version and for the most part it's mildly entertaining as long as you don't take it too serious. The biggest problem is that there are way too many scenes where not much is happening outside of dialogue. Director Richard S. Flink stops well short of any sexuality but of course it's the gore that sold this picture.
So, how is the gore? I'd argue that it's pretty good, although it's obvious to see how the various effects were done. There are a couple decapitations as well as the highlight of the film when one poor sucker is tied up only to be stabbed and then have his guts pulled out of him. This sequence is certainly the goriest of the movie and I'd argue it tops anything seen in a Lewis movie.
