ISLAND FURY -

While visiting a remote island with friends, two young girls discover a cache of mob money. as well as a clan of bloodthirsty cannibals who pick off the vacationers one by one. The girls manage to escape but are kidnapped years later by wiseguys hell-bent on getting back their loot. Forced back to the island to find the treasure, the girls and their captors instead find nothing but trouble. Also more notoriously known as Please Don't Eat the Babies, this strange shocker was one of the last horror films from independent producer Mardi Rustam (Eaten Alive, Evils of the Night).



BARRACUDA -

The quaint seaside town of Palm Cove is home to upstanding citizens, good ol' fashioned southern hospitality . and a deadly rash of barracuda attacks. The town sheriff (William Kerwin, Blood Feast, Scum of the Earth) and a young marine biologist (Wayne Crawford, God's Bloody Acre) join forces to discover that the culprits are none other than the local chemical plant and its odious managers. but little do they know that the scheme runs much, much deeper. Produced in the wake of Jaws, this homegrown "regional" film is equal parts horror and suspense, with industrial-government conspiracy themes predating those of The X-Files and Halloween III.

This review is for Barracuda I have not seen The other film on this DVD called Island Fury. Barracuda is a 1978 film about attacks on people by Barracuda in the ocean of a small town called Palm Cove. The film starts out under water with a swimmer being attacked. The scene reminds me very much of the movie Phirana. With the fish tails wiggling as blood fills the water. At the beginning I thought this was going to be a simple 1970's killer animal movie. But after a few more attacks the film plot go's deeper than you would expect. Spoiler Alert! If you don't want to know why the Barracuda are attacking before seeing the film you can stop reading now. It is soon discovered by a marine biologist that the Barracuda have chemicals in there blood, and that dumping of waste at the local chemical plant is to blame. But the chemicals found in there blood are not industrial chemicals,so what are they doing in the waste that the plant is dumping into the ocean? It is discovered by the marine biologist that an experiment is going on in the town called the Lucifer project Which involves putting chemicals in the towns water supply to cause low blood sugar in the people. All with the help of the town doctor. For the purpose of mind control and making people violent during war. Creating killer Barracuda was just an unexpected result of the Lucifer project. The film is a lot of fun!

Barracuda (1978) I bought this movie because I really thought it would be terrible. I imagined something like "Spawn of the Slithis", or "Nazi Surfers Must Die", but this movie turns into a fun one after all. In the beginning, the plot is very silly - barracudas eat people. Amazing. The filming is under water, with the barracudas waving their tails while eating the limbs of people is laughable. But... in the middle of the movie the barracudas disappear, and the story, although still with poor acting, gets interesting. In fact, X-Files is very close to this in subject. And the end is a lot better than one you could expect from a movie called "Barracuda".

"Island Fury" Please Don't Eat the Babies (1983) Hank Worden, Mose in "The Searchers", winds down a great career with this student film mish-mash of a movie. Yachters use Worden's small island pier/store to stock up on supplies. The island is off limits and there is a curfew for the paying customers. Yachters are supposed to drop a few bucks and push off. Any one breaking the rules discovers Worden has a family inland that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Texas Chainsaw Clan. Which would have been fine. The film gets even more inept trying to inject a monster menace. Aquatic cockroach things that Worden's family has a weird empathy with. This is a particularly inept and difficult film to watch.
