"This is a rather silly Japanese monster movie about people turning into mushrooms after eating them on a mysterious tropical island. Nothing of any interest happens unless you count the cast turning and bickering against each other until the last 15 mins when the mushroom monsters attack. I found myself becoming a bit bored by the end. Not that good IMO."
