HIDDEN HORROR – Island of Terror

island_of_terror_by_harnois75-d5ouai8The 1960s was no stranger to Hammer horror films and even many fun silly monster movies, one of which was from great Britain and stars Peter Cushing called “Island of Terror” this fun, silly and somewhat nightmarish little monster movie involved creatures that suck the bones out of you! im not kidding.

from imdb: A small island community is overrun with creeping, blobbish, tentacled monsters which liquefy and digest the bones from living creatures. The community struggles to fight back.

Now as a british monster movie from the 1960s, the pacing is a little slow at times and at times just a little talky, and the Monster FX may seem dated, but rest assured this “sucker” is alot of fun and the concept of slimy booger amoeba things sucking the bones out of people is both silly and yet somewhat nightmarish. And when said monsters called in the film “Silicates” suck the bones out of there victims, the sound of said a killing sounds like cans being crushed, which all the more adds to the fun horror of it all.

So if you want a dated yet fun little monster movie with a crazy concept, seek out Island of Terror..though sadly it has only been released in the US on VHS and in the UK on dvd. – James J. Coker
