This is a funny little film made as a tribute to the 1950's big monster era. They even name one of the characters after the late leading "monster man" of Hollywood,Ray Harryhausen. While I wish this movie had a few more creatures to watch, for what it is,I liked it. Dan

Tacky but fun low budget MTV horror movie salute to stop action animation. Kids win party from MTV on an island in the Bermuda Triangle (oooh!), Carmen Elektra is the headliner, she's hauled off by a gigantic bee, mad scientist Adam West tries to help them retrieve her and destroy the nest.

Movie Reviews

Campy Fun
Mark J. Slocum | Metairie, La. United States | 10/07/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Was not a great monster film. But it was never meant to be taken seriously. It's a good campy throwback to monster movies of the 50's and 60's. This is this first movie I ever saw Mary Elizabeth Winstead in and one of the main reasons I bought this DVD. Adam West has a turn as a "mad scientist". He does a good job of it."
Harryhausen Tribute
Joshua Koppel | Chicago, IL United States | 11/01/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This MTV made for TV movie is a tribute to stop-motion master Ray Harryhausen. Adam West even plays a mad scientist by the name of Harryhausen. The action centers around an MTV concert by Carmen Electra held on a small tropical island. Things get bad when a giant flying insect grabs Carmen and flies off with her. While some believe Carmen is now beyond hope, a small group of teens decide that any hope is worth pursuing and they set off to rescue the pop singer.

The giant insect is not the only monster on the island and we are treated to giant preying mantises, a giant spider, giant ants, a gill man, and even a predatory fungus with a dash of horseshoe crab. All must be overcome in order to rescue Carmen Electra.

As a tribute, this movie works quite well. The plot is a little weak but rather typical for movies targeting the same audience. I was a little surprised that MTV made this film and made the MTV personnel act like jerks. Definitely not their best job at self promotion but a great effort at stop motion animation. Some DVD extras take you behind the scenes to show just what is involved in making a stop motion extravaganza. If you like giant bugs and monsters then this is a film to watch."
