Dr. Paul Henderson, his sex-bomb wife Carla, and Peace Corps volunteer Jim Farrell arrive on Blood Island and discover that nature has been hideously perverted when deadly branches and roots grab at them like tentacles. Other native life forms include mutated insects and crabs and a horrific humanoid beast that the spear-wielding natives call The Evil One. When Jim learns that the islanders worship this demon and provide it with sacrificial maidens, he struggles to organize resistance in an effort to prevent yet another orgy of blood.
This elaborate and exotically weird chiller combines 1950s-style monsters (the result of atomic testing) with some strictly 1960s plot embellishments (like the Doc's nympho wife and the monster's gory assaults on topless native beauties). It was the first entry in the notorious Filipino Blood Island trilogy which continued with Mad Doctor of Blood Island and Beast of Blood. - Tom Weaver

"It does not devour his victims, .. but merely satisfies himself with them"
"But, they were ripped to PIECES!!!!!"
"Yes! . . that is how he satisfies himself".
. .. Hmmmmmmmm! Very de Sadean ( I dare say ).
Aside from that, it's a pretty typical vintage grade B "Adults Only" drive-inn/grindhous sleaze/horror/exploitation flick. Of course it's pretty boring at times. There are, unfortunately, allot of long dull talky scenes which slow it down a bit. But it also does feature some pretty decent and worthwhile mid 1960's style ( or pre-ratings code ) nudity and gore - the former in the context of the "maiden sacrifices" ( in which the martyred females are nude ). There are also a few pretty decent and effective shocks, like particularly a scene in which some natives are
carrying a concealed load of remains for disposal in the ocean during an island funeral. Then one of the bearers accidentally stumbles and tips the load and some human limbs drop out. Has it's dead spots, but also has it's strong points and is ultimately worthwhile for fans of this type of flick. Perhaps it could even be recommended for showing in sexual pathology courses with it's previously related sexual sadism theme ?
They arrive by boat just as a funeral is taking place for two horribly mauled women. Shortly we discover from native leader Arcadio (Andres Centenera) that they have reverted to their primitive ways. There's some backstory about virgin sacrifices and radiation-related mutations before we meet suave Esteban Powers (Mario Montenegro) who lives in a big weird house with his devoted but creepy assistant Goro (Bruno Punzalan) and a bunch of dwarves. The whole thing is bordering on the surreal, and crosses that line when we meet the screaming prehensile trees and learn that Powers is himself a hideous (but hilarious) mutant on the warpath. Speaking of surreal, whatever you do be sure not to miss the vicious moth attack! There's also lots of silly scenery chewing, some chanting that is really hard to get out of your mind, some man-to-man and man-to-tree combat, and an absolute ton of laughs.
This print looks as good as it's probably ever going to, and the audio is generally OK too, though there are flaws in both the picture and sound as you would expect from a picture of this vintage and budget. The DVD comes with several extras, including another in Sam Sherman's rambling (though intermittently interesting) commentaries. The extras are all well worth investigating. I must admit that I originally came to this film via "Cinematic Titanic," who released their hilarious take on the classic (under the "Danger on Tiki Island" title; it's had at least eleven alternative titles) several years ago. The unvarnished film gets long and plodding among all the talking and walking through the woods, so I prefer the humor-enhanced "Cinematic Titanic" version (which I have seen numerous times) to the original Filipino foible. I would recommend that lovers of B-movies check out both versions with all due haste.
John Ashley, busty Beverly hills,and reliable Kent Taylor go to an island to help the natives, and find the plants and insect life have been changed by the Atomic bomb experiments years ago.They also find that the natives have regressed to barbarians, and are sacrificing the native girls to a mutant with a large dong who rapes the women and tears them apart.This is truly a "so bad it's good movie", and is worth a viewing
just to see the mutant rip the clothes off of Beverly Hills (her real name?)If you're
a fan of bad 70's horror movies, this is one not to be missed!
