Movie Info

Impressive production values can't disguise the painfully dated premise of this TV movie which stars Robert Foxworth as an over-stressed advertising executive whose doctor prescribes a lengthy period of rest and recuperation. Foxworth decides to voyage to Hawaii -- where his grandfather once worked as a missionary -- and soon finds himself the victim of an island curse which the natives first placed upon his grandfather, who then passed it to his son, and so on... until, before he can say "Larry Talbot," Foxworth begins developing an unsightly hair-growth issue by the next full moon. Despite the exotic setting and a rather daring abundance of skin for a TV movie, this is a stodgy and completely unnecessary throwback to low-grade monster films of yore, complete with slow-dissolve transformations and rubber-teeth monster effects.
