James best stars as Thorne Sherman, a young man who fins himself stranded on an island with a small group of people. The island is slowly being overrun with giant killer shrews who are growing very hungry. Baruch Lamet is Marlowe Craigis, a scientist who helped create the monsters and Ken Curtis is the drunken bastard who let them loose, now they are taking over the island.
Ingrid Goude is the very sexy Ann Craigis who falls for Sherman. The monsters are actually dogs in masks, but who cares...this is an enjoyable film that really moves at a brisk pace. It was shot in Texas for the sum of $123,000 and made over a million back on it's investment.
A fun movie that garnered a sequel 53 year later!! More on that tomorrow.
