When on a remote island community a corpse is discovered completely devoidof bone, the local police constable (Sam Kydd) calls in Dr. Landers (EddieBryne) who is at a loss to explain. He goes to the mainland to see Dr.Stanley (Peter Cushing) a pathologist. Stanley and Landers go to DavidWest(Edward Judd) who is an expert on bone disease. Intrigued by the bizarresymptoms, West's girlfriend Toni Merril (Carole Gray) follow Landers backtothe island.<br><br>They discover that well-known cancer specialist Dr. Philips has been doingexperiments on the island. They discover Philips and his colleagues' dead,the bodies boneless.<br><br>As the Doctors search through Philip's notes they discover he was tryingtocreate a living organism to attack cancer cells, but something went wrongand he ended up creating a silicone based creature that lives off animalbone. These creatures, which Stanley names 'Silicates', are roaming theisland......<br><br>Made by obscure British company 'Planet Productions' this great littleflickwas produced by Richard Gordon who also gave us the cult favourite `FiendWithout a Face'. With the expert hand of Hammer Director Terence Fisher atthe helm, Gordon has produced a similarly grotesque set of creatures toterrorize his high-class cast.True the 'Silicates' are rather funny looking, like huge rubber cow patswith a vacuum cleaner attachments that they use to grab their victimswith,and suffer from the old zombie problem of moving very slowly, but theymakefor a wonderful sight gliding along in search of food and the manner ofdeath they deal out is so horrible (having your bones dissolved and suckedout while alive) that damaging humour is kept at bay.There are some great attack sequences as various cast members are digestedwith nicely disgusting slurping sounds by the creatures whom during onesequence even drop out of the trees! More fun is had when they divide andwhat looks like a gallon of watery tinned spaghetti flows out! They are abizarre and wonderfully entertaining creation.<br><br>The cast is in top form with Peter Cushing in particular giving us adelightful turn as the pathologist with a welcome streak of gentle humour.It's a role that only Cushing could play with this amount of laid backeaseand he is a joy to watch. Edward Judd is nicely stoic and handles hissceneswith Cushing well, showing he was a much under-used actor. Carole Grayscharacter is the only weak link, as she is strictly the clich&eacute; woman inperil sort who is given little to do. Thankfully her love interest sceneswith Judd are few and short.<br><br>The island atmosphere is captured well and Fisher makes what wouldnormallybe a tranquil setting a place of lurking menace. He also takes the viewerbysurprise with his treatment of some of the characters, never letting hisaudience get too complacent in the expectations.<br><br>Add to all this a lean and never wasted running time, a suitably manic andfunky soundtrack composition plus a typically cynical '60s epilogue andyouhave a film that should be much more widely known and available.<br><br>Planet Productions' also made `Night of the Big Heat', once again withCushing and Directed by Fisher but this time throwing Christopher Lee intothe mix as well and both these films, although `Island of Terror' is verymuch superior, both are worth tracking down. In these days where the UKonlymakes small scale independent, and normally U.S influenced horror filmsthismovie reminds us that Britain once produced some unique and delightfullyentertaining genre pieces.<br><br>Great fun!<br><br>

A strong cast and a strong premise make this a hugely enjoyable 'undersiege' monster flick. Peter Cushing, Edward Judd and Eddie Burns head acast of stalwart British character actors including Sam Kydd and NiallMcGuiness as they try to uncover the truth behind the gruesome deathsoccurring on their lonely fog shrouded island. A great use of BarryGray's (Thunderbirds composer) electronic sound effects add to theatmosphere. All in all 'Island of Terror' is a great little horror filmthat succeeds due to it's good narrative pace, its logical progressionand its unpretentious nature. On a par with many of the Hammer filmsbeing made at the time and far better than most Sci-Fi horror beingmade 40 years on.

I saw this film for the first time several years ago on a Saturday nightbroadcast on The Sci-Fi Channel and I was an immediate fan. How can classicsci-fi and horror fans not enjoy this film? It has a neat story, somegruesome sound effects, a top-notch cast and a great director. The filmtakes place on an island off the Irish coast and that's an immediatebonus....films where the population is trapped on a ship, island or in ahouse always add to the dread of any film, in my opinion. It makes for asmaller cast and you get to know the characters a bit better....this isdefinitely the case with this film. A medical research team it seems hasbeen experimenting and attempting to find a cure for cancer, certainly anoble effort, but instead, they develop a new breed of creatures that liveon the bone of humans and animals. Once a local is found void of any bones,enter Peter Cushing as Dr Brian Stanley and Edward Judd as Dr David West. West's girlfriend, Toni Merril (Carole Cray) also accompanies the Drs to theisland and this is where the film really takes off. Bodies begin to pileup, the gruesome sounds of the 'beasties' liquefying/sucking the bones fromtheir victims must be heard to be believed and the action moves at a nicepace. If you're a fan of blood and gore, then this film won't satisfy yourneeds, but if you like quality acting, directing and a decent story-line,then this may just be what you're looking for.
