The title of this one may seem self-explanatory - giant crabs attack and kill humans - but not necessarily. Some people forget that Roger Corman tried to add something extra to his little films, even though his rep now is just as the B-film schlock producer. The film takes place in one of those very isolated locations, on an island. Things go bad swiftly, as several people are marooned and then it gets a lot worse as they find out that a couple of crabs on the isle have apparently mutated into larger specimens. But, there's more; the crabs can absorb the minds of their victims - it gets pretty eerie.

ONE OF THE STARS, RUSSELL JOHNSON, BROKE HIS TOE WHILE PLAYING A SCENE IN THE WATER; HE WAS FORCED TO CONTINUE IN THE ROLE WITHOUT MUCH MEDICAL ATTENTION, DUE TO THE LOW BUDGET (ROGER CORMAN SCHOOL OF FILMMAKING)...
DESPITE THE PAINFUL TRIAL, JOHNSON WOULD RETURN
TO A LONG-RUNNING ROLE ON ANOTHER ISLAND ON SIXTIES TV...
