It was described by David DeCoteau as "one of the very few family-oriented B movies to come out of the Philippines." This was due to star Patrick Wayne's insistence that the film be a family movie. Producer John Ashley said that the original intention was for the lead characters to discover the people living underwater, and "for the most part they were going to be topless". However Larry Woolner, the head of Dimension Pictures, thought that they had the chance to make a slightly more ambitious film. They wanted to cast Wayne, and one of his requirements was that the film be made PG. See more »
Three guys and a gal head off to a remote Island to harvest the peals of the local tribe who all wear swimming googles even while on shore. The first half of the movies is OK but then bogs down with too many underwater scenes.
Sid Haig is perfectly creepy and Big John's kid is adequate. John Ashley gets to play a part that is not the all American boy for a change and does a nice job. George Nader gets to Ham it up a bit and there is a lot of action with Leigh Christian looking quite beautiful while swimming underwater. With all of that said, the movie just dosn't work.
