Heroic, but dull, Fred Maklin and beautiful, but spoiled, Jerrie Turner wash up on an uncharted tropical island. They are soon captured by ex-Nazi Colonel Osler, who also has imprisoned a bevy of beauty contest winners whom he allows to be whipped by his slavering Nazi storm troopers. He has, you see, been extracting some glandular substance from the girls to inject into his wife Mona, who suffered terrible facial disfigurement, in efforts to restore her beauty. Things get worse as the island is used for test bombing by the US Air Force.Written by

When we first meet them the island women are dancing around a fire. The pipe feeding gas to the 'wood' fire is made clearly visible on the floor of the studio (on the right hand side of the screen) as the material covering it is disturbed by the dancers' feet. See more »
Where did you come from? How did you get here?
I guess you want to truth?
You are not only beautiful, you are smart. I will know if you are lying.
I just swooshed in on a dry martini.
What is this "swoosh"?
It's means to float, American slang.
So you floated in on a dry martini... I have heard of this martini. So the Americans are still using them, eh?

Shipwrecked on an island during a hurricane, four survivors - spoilt heiress Jerrie (Irish McCalla), explorer Fred Maklin (Tod Griffin), and crew members Sammy Ching (Victor Sen Yung) and Kris Kumana (Charles Opunui) - discover a tribe of sexy native women who are being used in experiments by evil Nazi concentration camp doctor Karl 'The Butcher' Osler (Rudolph Anders).
In his attempts to restore the beauty of his disfigured wife Mona (Leni Tana), Osler has transformed numerous native women into vicious 'she demons', retaining their hot bods but wiping their minds and giving them hideous fizzogs in the process. When Jerrie, captured by the Nazis, spurns Osler's amorous advances, she too is scheduled to become a she demon...
This hokey '50s drive-in flick boasts all sorts of exploitation goodness: Nazis are always a winner, as are voluptuous native girls (played here by The Diane Nellis Dancers, who perform a hilariously bad dance routine). The 'she demons' themselves are memorably daft, with manky skin, oversized teeth, and claws. Also adding to the trashy vibe are a couple of scenes of torture, with a native babe flogged to death, and Fred and Sammy shackled and forced to walk in circles until exhausted.
Unfortunately, even with a short running time of 77 minutes, the lack of any real plot development means that the film does start to drag after a while, although the finalé, as our heroes escape from the Nazi lair while lava floods the island, is quite fun.
4.5 out of 10, rounded up to 5 for the terrible stunt doubles who look nothing like the actors they are standing in for, and for McCalla's giraffe-like neck.
