A yacht on a day trip encounters a freak storm which almost capsizes them. The wounded boat makes it to an uncharted island. The skipper, his trusted first-mate, a writer, a professor, the wealthy yacht owner, a glamorous singer, and a nice looking female college student must forage the island to survive and hopefully repair the yacht. Sound familiar? You are wrong! A few years before "Gilligan's Island" was released, "Matango: Attack of the Mushroom People" (1963) horrified Japanese audiences. I remember seeing this movie on Creature Feature on Channel 56 in Boston in the early 1970s, and it terrified me.
