I Eat Your Skin (1971)
Ti Mangerò la Pelle
Voodoo Blood Bath
Nomination Year: 2015
SYNOPSIS: Let me first state that there is no skin eating in this movie. Not mine, not yours, not the fried chicken's at dinner, not anybody's.
Now that that's out of the way...
A playboy writer of romances is whisked away (i.e., forced) to a tropical island by his friend/publisher/boss, in an attempt to get him actually to write something. The place? An idyllic remote island with the charming name of Voodoo Island. As it happens, there is a scientist there who, with his gorgeous blonde daughter, is working on the cure for cancer.
Secretly, however, the scientist is using the island's unique snake venoms to make an army of zombies to conquer the world! Can our novelist, now smitten with the daughter, save her from being sacrificed by the natives who believe it will stop the island's volcano from erupting?
- "Alas, Poor Yorick"
In order to prevent our heroes from leaving the island, the voodooists [sic.] send a zombie with a crate of explosives to walk into the propeller. Enrico dies, even though he had plenty of time to get out. He switches sides within the cockpit several times, too.
- "Cutting Butter With A Chainsaw"
Load-Bearing Atomic Zombie-Making Machine
In their mad escape from the voodoo cultists, the doc set his atomic whoozits to overload. Now, it finally explodes! Booom! Down goes the...uh...model of the island.
- Worst Acting
"It's So TROPical!"
We see Betty Hyatt Linton's acting ability best here...but it's so short, it should work fine combined with the previous.
