Welcome to Monster Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. What we gots here is another trip to Blood Island with Dungeon fave, John (THE BEAST OF THE YELLOW NIGHT) Ashley. The story's about a man who's captured while skin diving and then transported to a remote island where a scientist is intent on turning him into a super-being. The man tries to escape with the help of the scientist's daughter and a band of half-human, half-animal mutant creatures.
Check out the list of producers!.. John Ashley, David J. Cohen, Beverly Miller, Eddie Romero, Larry Woolner and Roger Corman.
The music's by Tito Arevalo and Ariston Avelino. Tito worked on films like HONG KONG 999, BLACK JACK, THE RAVAGERS, MAD DOCTOR OF BLOOD ISLAND, BEAST OF BLOOD, THE MAGIC CARPET and PHANTOM LADY. Ariston composed music for MISS PHILIPPINES, KANTO GIRL, TERROR IS A MAN, TIGER UNIT, MORO WITCH DOCTOR and BLACKWORMS.

Our hero, Matt Farrell, is sought out and unceremoniously captured by Dr. Gordon's henchmen.
Then, he's transported to the doctor's remote mansion where he decides to explore the place at night.
And, what does he discover?.. Delicious cheesecake and pastries!!

Neva has had it with her dad's ass hole buddies and decides to let her Twilight People go!
Ken Metcalfe plays Kuzma, the Antelope Man...
Pam Grier plays Ayesa, the Panther Woman...
Kim Ramos plays Primo, the Ape Man...
And, Tony Gosalvez plays Darmo, the Bat Man. This is actually pretty funny where Darmo tries to fly for the first time, he plummets to the ground and lands flat on his face!
The doctor's men are in hot pursuit.
Kuzma's a freakin' dead shot and Ayesa just chews the Hell out of her opponents!
I like this shot because it reminds me of working in the garden!
Darmo pays the doctor a little visit.
He finally learns the finer details of flying!..
Darmo takes care of business and flys away into the sunset...
