Synopsis

While vacationing in the tropics, four young adventurers--Johnny, Betty, Pete, and Jean--go ashore on a small island and meet the sinister Dr. Balleau, a madman who spends his time hunting vicious wild animals with which he has stocked the island. The four visitors learn that the doctor also enjoys hunting human beings and then displaying them, by means of taxidermy, after they have met horrible deaths. After murdering his wife and houseguest, Balleau sets the four young people free and tells them he will hunt them down with a crossbow. Before he can do so, however, he is crushed to death by a crazed aide, and the four vacationers are saved.
