Movie Info

An elderly Boris Karloff headlines this low-budget Italian crime drama. He plays the owner of a financially struggling nursery who finds himself hopelessly involved in a kidnapping. A group of drug smugglers did the abducting and now Karloff and a detective team up to find them. The investigator will need to be on his toes, for nothing about the case is what it seems to be. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Il mostro dell'isola (The Island Monster)

Pretty empty and confusing, the film doesn't seem to go anywhere and it gets dull from the start. Karloff's performance is unmemorable and the rest of the film offers little to entertain, and is rather disappointing from the title.

Island Monster 1954 Mill Creek Boris Karloff is beyond any shadow of a doubt one of the greatest horror actors of all time. But this movie produced by Romana Film (Italy), is one of his worst. My guess is Boris needed some time off and was on vacation in the Isle?s of Italy. In this movie Boris plays a smuggler, who government agents are trying to track down and arrest. The main agent?s daughter is kidnapped by Boris. The sound and dubbing on this movie are terrible. There is no horror in this movie, the only horror is having to sit down and watch it. There is no Monster in this movie, again a guess but I would say that?s the title they gave Boris for kidnapping a child, or to draw fans to the theater. My copy was in Mill Creeks Drive-In Movie 50 pack, why it was in there I do not know as I doubt very much that this movie ever hit the US Drive Inn Circuit, Maybe in Sicily but not in America. The little girls dubbed voice was so terrible when you could understand what she was saying, one knows it?s the voice of a 2 pack a day cigarette smoker. 1 star for the poor production of this one.
