Any movie crawlin' with begoggled Nazi zombie death-slaves oughta be more fun than this. Anyway, it's got Carradine and Cushing...and some pissed-off Radar guy who gripes about everything. When the Nazis finally do show up, they look kinda like Sting and kinda like Lou Reed (from the Sally Can't Dance album cover). Jay Ferguson is also on hand, his mustache huge and bristling (though he doesn't sing "Thunder Island" in this one). And in the end only Karen Allen is left alive to tell thee...

Likeable, well-made, but perhaps lacking any significant impact. There is a decent undercurrent of dread and suspense, underpinned by the subtle electro soundtrack, and the island locations are nicely shot. The cast does fine, Cushing and Carradine lending some experience. The kills are surprisingly bloodless for what is essentially a zombie film, and the threat comes from some rather odd Nazi-flavoured zombies who could easily work together to form a Devo/Kraftwerk-style synth band.

Gilligan's Island meets a murderous Kraut-Rock or Early 80s synth-pop group. This is quite spectacular viewing for a low-budget horror film, and thankfully lacking in gore and shock. It comes with a definite air of menace, but lacks characterisation for the most part.

I'm guessing the studio green-lit a remake of "Island of Dr Moreau" then, weeks later, it was learned there was only enough in the budget for these bitchin' goggles. Hence...Nazis! That's how it went down in my head anyway.

Some gorgeous shots and fun action. The scene where they lose their sailboat is excellent suspense. The water is beautiful to look at too. Suffers that low-budget horror problem of too much wandering around, but still a solid nazi zombie romp. Oh, and that poster rules.

A bunch of goofs out for a pleasure cruise on their boat get deserted on a remote island infested with Nazi zombies. Pretty slow moving stuff, and most of the kills are bloodless drownings, but there's lots of creepiness and hysterical screaming. John Carradine and Peter Cushing add a touch of class to the otherwise unremarkable cast.

Some really memorable images to be found here, especially any scene where the aquatic Nazi zombies rise slowly from their watery graves. Didn't even realize until it was over that there's almost no blood to be found here, yet the dread is palpable throughout. Very sleepy in spots, but surprisingly solid for what it is, and helped along by its sparse low-budget synthesizer score.

Green Zombies and a weird story. Not really good but almost not bad. Give it a try if you like a little bit B-Movie flair.
