Island of The Fishmen Movie Review with Barbara Bach DVD
Island of The Fishmen movie review with Barbara Bach DVD. A military doctor played by Claudio Cassinelli ends up on a tropical island where a mad scientist is doing horrible human experiments with fish making fish-men. This sounds kind of fishy? Barbara Bach plays the beautiful daughter of Professor Ernest Marvin (mad scientist).
Mya Communication is the studio who has released this little hidden gem and unfortunately the picture quality may not be up to everyone’s expectations, but there is one very good point to this movie and it is the totally stunning beauty of Barbara Bach, so if you are a Bach fan it will be worth a view just to see her.
Many die-hard horror freaks love finding movies that are un-cut and finding the “Island of The Fishmen” un-cut is not an easy task online. This is why many horror collectors will try to acquire the old VHS formats of such films as Island of The Fishmen. VHS tapes can be found on Amazon or eBay and sometimes the prices can be quite high.
Island of The Fishmen does have it’s good points with stunning visuals of locations that look like a great vacation destination. Another added plus to this motion picture is that it has plenty of twists, good pacing, and high tension leading up to a fishy massacre.The downside with Island of The Fishmen is the mutated fish-men, who have suits that are not constructed to creep horror fans out, but they do still manage to have some appeal.
The Island of the Fishmen film is a purposeful concept and it’s certainly more of an action adventure type of movie with a touch of fantasy, rather than a horror film. Personally, I have an affinity towards movies with amphibious creatures and one of my all time favorites is, 1954′s “Creature from the Black Lagoon.” Incidentally, I heard there will be a Creature from the Black Lagoon re-make for 2013.
If you are looking for a good fish monster movie then this may be to your liking. The theatrical release date for Island of The Fishmen was in 1979 – Italy. This is a decent B movie and it would make a nice addition to collectors who enjoy creature features. The Island of The Fishmen motion picture brings back those memories of staying up past midnight as a kid to watch a scary movie, while the parents were sleeping.
