SHE GODS OF SHARK REEF - Sylvia Syms - "Nearer My Love To You" (1958)

It really takes a very broad stretch of the imagination to actually consider this movie, "She Gods Of Shark Reef" a 'horror' story or a monster movie, but what it does have going for it, is that it's a 1958 Roger Corman film, it's happening on a tropical island, in this case, the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai, and it has a pretty cool title song composed by Jack Lawrence & Frances Hall, that is sung by none other than the woman that Frank Sinatra said was "the world's greatest saloon singer," Sylvia Syms! The consummate performer, Sylvia died on stage at the age of 74! Other than all that, this film is pretty much dullsville, including the luau, and luau's should never be dull! Take it for what it's worth, just don't take it too far!!

Nearer My Love To You

The world famous "Bali Hai" is quite a sight to behold even in a cheap movie!

Hey lady, you seen any turtle doves or French hens around here???

It's a bummer being buried in the sand with all these mad She Gods staring at you!

This house is the scariest part of the movie!!!

Ah... I love this movie.

I just listened to the theme music again. That is a great track.

I don't know why I like the film so much... it makes me nostalgic for some reason.

It rather looks like faded postcards from some alternative universe.
