Description by OLDIES.com:

A hard-bitten down-on-his-luck charter pilot (Byron Sanders) is hired by an alcoholic movie actress (Rita Morley) and her nubile personal assistant (Barbara Wilken) to fly them to Provincetown. But mechanical problems and an impending storm force them to land on a deserted island habited by a German scientist (Martin Kosleck) harboring secret experiments and an even darker past. Featuring taut direction by Jack Curtis, and punctuated by snappy dialogue from screenwriter Arnold Drake, "The Flesh Eaters" has cemented its cult classic status as being one of the first gore films. Released in various censored incarnations over the years, it is presented here in the original cleavage-baring and gore-drenched theatrical version.

Product Description:

Jack Curtis directs this forgotten B-movie from the 1960s, which holds the dubious distinction of being one of the only horror films of its ilk to be shot entirely on Long Island. Starring Martin Kosleck, who was known in Hollywood throughout the 1940s for his knack of portraying Nazis, the film has somehow been neglected by the veneration currently being visited upon its contemporaries, but nonetheless it exhibits many of the same characteristics. Kosleck plays a demented Nazi scientist who is experimenting with a strain of flesh-eating bacteria, which he sees as the key ingredient to a revivified Third Reich. The seclusion of his island lab is one day disturbed by a peevish movie star, her secretary, and their pilot. A beatnik shipwreck victim rounds out the protagonists. The action is low-budget but highly gory in this cult classic designed for drive-in thrills.

Rating 4.5 A well-done cheapie! Movie Lover: from BEEVILLE, TX US -- July, 3, 2013

At first I hesitated, but now I am glad I watched this movie. It is worth it to see Martin Kosleck's portrayal of the at-first-harmless-soon-revealed-to-be-dastardly Peter Bartell. Also Byron Sanders provides us some reassurance that one can still find the type of hero who can selflessly endure pain and face overwhelming odds to save humanity. But whatever you do, stay out of the water, and don't touch that drink!
