A cargo vessel sails to to a remote deserted island to deliver supplies to the research scientist who dwells there, Dr. Craigis. It seems that he has created a breed of venomous mutant shrews that have escaped onto the island and are wreaking havoc. There's no food left on the island, and the shrews are getting hungry....guess whats on the menu. This is one of my favorite bad/good films of the 50's.You can't help but enjoy a movie about killer shrews..even if the shrews are dogs wearing tattered furry rugs and phony masks but for me that adds to its charm.The acting is better than one would expect out of a budget film from '59.Though the resident blond hottie (Ingrid Goude 1957's Miss Universe) sounds like she has a speech impediment rather than an accent. Anyone else enjoy?
