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!

Some friends are out on a boat & find a man stranded, they bring him aboard. He tells them, that nearby is an island, inhabited by an old recluse woman, and her dogs. One of our characters (Nick) goes nuts, threatens his fellow friends/family members (and saved man) with a gun; and sails the boat right over some jagged rocks. They come ashore on the island, and find a horrifying secret. They all begin to fall prey to HUMONGOUS!
Good: The film has great atmosphere and foreboding mood. The acting ranges from bad to okay. The effects aren't stellar, but are passable. One minor nitpick I have, for a hulking cannibal, our antagonist sure doesn't seem to have much of an appetite, as we never see him eat anybody. That aside everything else is fine. I like the dark tones of the sky, which adds to the atmosphere. As we see the day in the beginning go from bright & sunny, to dark and haunting.
Humongous is a fun flick, that should be waded into with low expectations. It's enjoyable in it's own right.
Fun Facts: Humongous is manufactured from the creators of Prom Night (1980).

I like this movie not because it is especially well done, but because it struck a chord in me of unrelenting sadness, right up to the final image.
To this day, I still don't get the title: Humongous. Who would name their kid that? As for being descriptive of anything in this movie, I can't say they focused on anything long enough to get its dimensions.
I'm keeping it as being representative of a bygone era. That, and because I am a sucker for this type of movie.
Definitely worth a watch!
