Overview

Dull, workaday life at the Navy weather station base on Gow Island is broken up -- violently -- when a transport plane from the antarctic, on a routine approach for re-fueling, sudden reports trouble and crash-lands. Most of the scientists and crew who were supposed to be aboard are missing, and the one man they do find, the pilot, is in a shock and can't speak. Then the local bird population gets disturbed, and soon people are disappearing, all while the scientists try to figure out the connection between all of these events and a corrosive residue that starts turning up. It later becomes clear that the island, now cut off from the outside world, is under assault by some kind of carnivorous species than can resist most weapons and breeds very fast. Lt. Charles Brown (Anthony Eisley), in temporary command, has to hold together his small navy crew and a coterie of scientists (Walter Sande et al) and civilians, including a nurse (Mamie Van Doren) in whom he has more than a professional interest.

I remember seeing this movie on the old Chiller Theater program on channel 11 in New York back in the late 60's early 70's. Back then, it wasn't bad, the effects were ok, and the acting wasn't what I was looking at when your around 12 years old. I bought the DVD thinking it was going to be great to see it again after all these years, but I was disappointed. The acting was bad, I could have done a better job, and I'm not even an actor. The monster effects were kind of cheezy, but given the time when the movie was made, you can deal with it. My biggest beef, is with the DVD transfer that Cheezy Films used. It is of such poor quality, you would think the movie was made back around 1910. The colors are muted, the picture quality lacks sharpness, overall a disappointment. Cheezy Films should have done a better job, the movie itself is cheezy, but the presentation on the DVD shouldn't be.
