Please Don't Eat the Babies (1983)

aka Island Fury

How bad is it? Once again: Great title for a pedestrian film. It's by-the-numbers horror.
Should you see it? No.

This film manages to blend two uninteresting plotlines. In one, two women are forced to go to an island and help find buried treasure; in the other, the same women, when they were still girls encounter a cannibalistic family on the same island. It's nice to see Hank Worden get work, but the rest of the cast is not good. There's big bugs, earthquakes, a pitchfork-wielding killer... the film is all over the place. Nothing is particularly scary and there are a few moments that elicit an unintended chuckle or two.
