Editorial review of The Flesh Eaters courtesy of Amazon.com
“There’s something in that water that eats flesh!” A hard-bitten, down-on-his-luck charter pilot (Byron Sanders) is hired by an alcoholic movie actress (Rita Morley) and her nubile personal assistant (Barbara Wilkin) to fly them to Provincetown. But, mechanical problems and an impending storm force them to land on a deserted island habited by a German scientist (Martin Kosleck), harboring secret experiments and an even darker past. Featuring taut direction by Jack Curtis, and punctuated by snappy dialogue from screenwriter Arnold Drake, “The Flesh Eaters” has cemented its cult classic status as being one of the first gore films. Released in various censored incarnations over the years, it is presented here in the original cleavage-baring and gore-drenched theatrical version.
