Island of Terror (1966, GBR) C-89m. ** D: Terence Fisher. Starring Peter Cushing, Edward Judd, Carole Gray, Eddie Byrne, Sam Kydd. Cushing's credibility is put to a test in this B-monster movie from Britain. He plays a doctor, who is called to an island, where cancer research has resulted in the creation of bone-sucking monsters. Rather silly, unconvincing. Despite Fisher's (so-so) direction, this was not a Hammer production. Also known as NIGHT OF THE SILICATES, THE CREEPERS, THE NIGHT THE CREATURES CAME, THE NIGHT THE SILICATES CAME.
