Editorial Reviews

A group of teens on a boat find themselves in a fogbound night only to run aground on the rocks of the mysterious 'Dog Island' right before their boat goes up in flames. As they gather on the shoreline, one of them goes missing, another is critically injured and four go searching for shelter. They then decide to venture into the still standing house to summon help from its occupants...if any. Luckily, there is someone still dwelling there, but unfortunately there's something else out on the island growling in the dark and it ain't no dog! And it is HUNGRY!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beauty is in the eye.. September 25, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Not all horror movies are classics, let's get that straight. But for those of you who appreciate monstrous killers, moody settings, and Janet Julian, Humongous is the flick for you. Yes it is typical of the genre. Idiot kids destroy thier boat, wash ashore on what they believe to be a deserted island, and run afoul of death. What seperates this movie from others of its ilk is the mood created by this film. Dark, well scored, and of decent acting, Humongous may be considered a hidden gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Okay Horror Film Gets Great Release December 1, 2011
By Spencer
The film "Humongous" has one strong point throughout the film, and that's its foreboding sense of doom for the characters involved. The monster is hidden throughout most of the movie, but you get a good look at him in the end. Okay, yes, the film is boring at stretches, the production values aren't great, but there's something about this film that's very distinct. Like I said, it's the atmosphere. The uncut version has a few slight extra bloody scenes, but nobody gets killed in ways that would make Tom Savini sweat his career. Overall, the movie is average with an extra edge of "they don't make them like they used to" working for it. I'm overjoyed to have this in my collection and will watch it again.

Warning: the rape scene at the beginning is very explicit. You've been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definetly feels like it was made in the 80s. December 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A woman is raped in 1946 by an ex-boyfriend; the guy is then mauled to death by her pet guard dogs. It then cuts to the 80s were a group of people go on a boat trip with a lunatic called Nick who seems to hate his brother. They stop the boat at night, and he gets annoyed by the sounds of howling dogs at a nearby island. He overtakes the boat and says stuff like "you're not the only one who can do things" and "I've got as much right as you." He crashes the boat and they wash ashore on the island with the dogs. The baby of the rapist is now a deformed super strong freak that's still on the island.

Some people will love this film and others won't. It depends on your taste, but I've seen it numerous times. It also doesn't get into the background of what's going on with this Nick character. If you're a huge fan of 80s horror you'll probably like it because the entire thing has an 80s type feel to it. The director (Paul Lynch) was the director of the original PROM NIGHT. Like that film, there isn't a lot of gore here. The goriest scene is the scene in the beginning when the guy is mauled by the dogs; this scene and the rape scene are the only parts that were cut for the R rating. The rest of the film has very little gore, but some of the violence does have some impact. The killer (a deformed freak with superhuman strength) doesn't use weapons like in other 80s slasher films; he uses his brute strength to kill. He was wandering the island and eating dogs for food, but now his food supply is almost gone. Apparently, he is now eating people. This film has some good atmosphere, and the island location provides nice scenery.

2.0 out of 5 stars Anti-climatic... January 3, 2006
By J. Cook
Format:VHS Tape
[brief plot synopsis]

In 1948 a teenage girl is raped by her boyfriend, and in revenge is killed for the act. Years later after she gave birth to his bastard retarded son, she secludes herself on a desolate island to raise him. After she died he is left to defend for himself, not knowing how to take care of himself he preys on the islands animals and his own guard dogs for food. Late one Summer evening, a group of teens out for a summer boating ride breaks down aside the island, looking for help they stumble onto his territory, and just in time-- he is hungry and hunts the teens like they were wild animals for food.

[good things]

First off, the movie's first kill was the bloodiest, a dog attack and pretty well done, in my opinion. I liked the setting. Of course, it being an 80's slasher flick it took a lot from movies like Friday The 13th. The movie was set in the middle of nowhere, it had a potentially menacing villain, beautiful heroine to be, a nice backstory, and a nice body count. I also liked the stalking nature of the killer, very similar to the P.O.V. shots in Friday The 13th. The movie was set over the course of a few days, and seemed to have nods to movies like Friday The 13th, Psycho and even Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The movie's killer was Garry Robbins, who played Saw Tooth on Wrong Turn.

[the bad]

The movie was old, and I had a DVDr sourced from VHS. The movie was too dark at times to see anything. The killer went unseen because of this, the lighting in the movie also sucked. Directing was lack lustre' and the movie in general was very anti-climatic. So much could have been done with the ending, and it completely fell limp. The movie I saw lacked blood, the kills seemed to be cut out all together.
