Horrors of Spider Island 1960 2007 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This film has many original themes that are played out in the movies of today. For those that watched “Total Eclipse” you remember Damsel Washington sniffing hair from a concealed location. Yep Gary (Alexander d’Arcy was born as Alexander Sarruf in Kairo) did it first. You have seen peeking throw a bush or from a tree at skinny dippers well it is here also. How about things that bite in the night? Yep.
Gary is taking a dance troupe to Singapore. We get to see them audition. On the way the plane crashes in the ocean. Now it is just Garry and the women. They spot an island and setup house. We know they are not alone. It turns out to be a “radioactive” Island. Something is lurking in the bushes and waiting to bite. This something is not Garry; or is it?
