The Flesh Eaters (1964) An alcoholic actress, her personal assistant, and their pilot are downed on a secluded isle by bad weather, where a renegade Nazi scientist is using ocean life to develop a solvent for human flesh. The tiny flesh-eating sea critters that result certainly give our heroes a run for their money - and lives.

Movie Trivia:
  • Copyrighted in 1962 (MCMLXII).
  • The Flesh Eaters used a very William Castle like exploitation gimmick; plastic packets of "instant blood" were given out to each patron as they entered the theatre in case they were attacked by flesh eaters.
  • Writer/producer Arnold Drake said he got the inspiration for this story from a incident in the 1950s in which millions of dead fish were washed ashore by red colored tides along the shores of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.
  • While filming on location at Montauk, New York, a real hurricane destroyed the sets and equipment. Production was delayed for a year and the cost rose from $60,000 to $105,000.
  • According to writer/producer Arnold Drake, Terry Curtis, wife of director Jack Curtis, won $72,000 on the television quiz show "High Low." Some of the money was used to finish this production.
