Cheap and unpleasant horror-exploitation nonsense about a young couple (Doug Leith and Dawn Marlow) on an island honeymoon terrorized by a lumbering, club-footed brute believed to be notorious rapist-murderer "The Ridge Runner." That's basically the extent of the inane plot, which ignores opportunities for even the most obvious twists in favor of a plodding and improbable cat-and-mouse scenario between the slow-moving maniac and his healthy young prey, while the ineffectual husband struggles to catch up. This is the first feature outing for director Peter Perry, who would later helm numerous drive-in nudie flicks throughout the 1960s for exploitation king Harry Novak (including the delightful Kiss Me Quick!). The cheerfully naughty attitude of those later films is sadly absent here.
