Actor/Director Chris Robinson made this film and sadly it never got released. Now, thanks to the wonder of Blu-ray it has been finally restored and made available to the masses.
Several people gather on a small island retreat looking for gold, but instead they find greed, murder and some totally irrational madness.
Before you can say "slasher" the bodies start piling up and it seems that the killer might be something supernatural. One by one people die until the very interesting conclusion, which threw me for a loop and was totally unexpected.
The plot is simple and is really a precursor to the slasher films of the 80's. The cast includes Mickey Rooney, Yvonne DeCarlo and Ted Cassidy whose role is small, but very important to the entire film, and director Robinson.
Garagehouse has been bringing out a lot of these lost little films, and I hope they can keep doing it. These are always a pleasure to finally see and no film deserves to be unreleased...well unless it's a Spike Lee film or a Michael Moore disaster, but that is another story for another time.
This is a highly recommended film and one of the best releases of the year in my opinion.
