Elvira's Movie Macabre: I Eat You Skin (1964)

After a long day, it was time to settle down and enjoy some more Elvira’s Movie Macabre. This installment was the 1964 low-budget zombie flick from Voo Doo Island, I Eat Your Skin.

Plot/ A cancer researcher on a remote Caribbean island discovers that by treating the natives with snake venom he can turn them into bug-eyed zombies. Uninterested in this information, the unfortunate man is forced by his evil employer to create an army of the creatures in order to conquer the world.

Being a fan of the drive-in era, I always sit in amazement at some of the low-budget flick made to meet the demand. This movie definitely falls into the so-bad it is almost good category. While there are the usual flaws, bad acting, poor editing, and a misplaced sound track. However, all is not lost. The pacing is decent, the scenery is beautiful and the zombie make-up is better than expected. Originally titled Zombies, which may make more sense because there is no flesh eating, this B-Movie is far from great, but if you love the cheese factor, check it out.
