“A Philippines jungle-filmed combination of The Most Dangerous Game and The Island of Dr. Moreau . . . this is one of the better Filipino horror movies from the early ‘70s.” - ACIDEMIC
Eddie Romero was THE great midnight movie auteur of the Philippines, a fearless DIY-slinger who mentally scarred generations. After completing his infamous Blood Island trilogy, he melded THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME and THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU into a scandalously manimalistic amalgamation of both that’s somehow like nothing else you’ll ever see. A wayward adventurer (Romero’s go-to screen hunk John Ashley) washes up on a mad doctor’s beach, and finds himself hunted among a subhuman menagerie that includes an airborne man-bat and the incomparable Pam Grier as The Panther Woman. If this doesn’t sound like a good time to you, get the heck out of here.
