Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 1769 ratings.
I liked it, it was an instant old school classic. I love the mexican decapitation, it holds true to what you would expect from a classic such as this. Imagine Scooby Doo but without that annoying dog and that whole little crew, oh and you can't forget the murders!
I award this film 2 stars from a technical and nit-picky point of view on account of bad dialogue and stupid plot, but as for just pure enjoyment this movie is THE BEST! It is not a "so-bad-its-funny" film, like Ed Woods's "Plan 9", instead it makes for a great viewing among friends and gives contemporary audiences the true feel of typical 1960's cheesey thrillers. Also....THE MUSIC RULES!!! The opening title music is so cool, that authentic sixies' guitar tremolo tone, the orchestra backin it up, the primal jungle beat of the drums... Actually, the guitar riff from the opening titles is one of my favorites to play (all my friends say its one of the creepiest things theve ever heard on guitar). But enough about the music. I will compliment this movie for its VERY unique and original zombie-transformation scenes, which are pretty disturbing. Also, the the scene where the nice elderly native gets decapitated is pretty far-out-there for 1964 (and right after he helped the protagonist find the island settlement...sob). This is one of my favorite low-budget horror films to watch, although is IS rather sexist (paticularly at the begining), AND that scene where the plane is about to take off, but is halted by a self-distructive zombie holding a crate that is stupidly labeled "dynamite", is pretty bad...but funny!
I've read a lot about this little movie, mostly bad things that is. When I saw it at a store, I had to buy it, just to see what the fuss was about. First off, the title doesn't fit the movie since no one actually eats any skin. Instead, this movie is about zombie slaves... instead of the Romero zombies. The movie is about a group of two men, and one woman who head to an island known as Voodoo Island. Once there, they are thrown into trouble, as zombies rampage througout the island. It takes the movie a long time to actually get interesting, but once it does... it's worth it. The zombies look so funny in this movie, but it adds to its kooki-ness. So anyone with an open mind to the weird movies of the cinema, give this little gem a try.
