Island of Terror (1966)

I watched the 1966 British horror film “Island of Terror” on Svengoolie. Producer Richard Gordon had the idea to do the movie based on a screenplay he’d seen, “The Night the Silicates Came” and partnered with Tom Blakey (Planet Films). The movie is a about an experiment gone wrong that unleashes an evil that kills and removes all the bones from the body. It stars Peter Cushing (Hammer Horror films star, Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars and Sherlock Holmes in the 1968 BBC Sherlock Holmes TV series),

Edward Judd, Carole Gray (Cliff Richards girlfriend Toni in “The Young Ones”), Eddie Byrne (Mutiny on the Bounty, General Willard in Star Wars), Sam Kydd and Niall MacGinnis. The movie was directed by Terence Fisher (Hammer Films). Barry Gray did the sound effects. You’ll remember him from The Thunderbirds and Space:1999, Fireball XL5 and UFO (TV Series).

I liked the movie and will give it 2.8 out of 5. For more information read Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
