USA 1964

 

The Flesh Eaters is exactly why people subject themselves to bad sci-fi films. Every once and a while you come across a gem that elicits such sheer enjoyment, you are willing to forgive the previous five or six duds you sat through. This is a camp film of the highest order. A pilot, an alcoholic actress, and her personal assistant become stranded on an island with a mysterious Udo Kier-like scientist. All hope of escape seems lost however, when they discover that the waters around them are home to some ‘strange glowing things’ that like to feed on human flesh. Featuring some of the sharpest Z-grade dialogue this side of Ed Wood Jr. and an utterly absurd “suspense sequence” about traversing a two-foot span of rocks that simply has to be seen to be believed, this is the epitome of a bad drive-in picture. Simply put, I laughed from beginning to end, and loved every damn second of it.

Comments This looked much better on my HD TV than on my computer. Non-progressive transfer exhibits moderate combing in many motion sequences, and there are some fluctuations in the audio quality. Those flaws aside, I think Dark Sky Films have come up with an excellent transfer for such an obscure picture. Thecinematography in the film is actually quite good and this disc (which has solid black levels, and is relatively free of all dirt and scratches) conveys this nicely. The extras feature a scene cut from the film that was of little interest to myself, but would have given the film more of a political edge had it remained intact. A worthy addition to any good collection, the film has tremendous replay value and I highly recommend it to the adventurous genre fans out there!
