On the remote Petrie's Island, farmer Ian Bellows goes missing while walking home through the woods one night. His concerned wife goes to the local constabulary, whereupon Constable John Harris heads out to local the wayward farmer... only to discover him dead in a cave with his skeleton having been [[{{Squick}} completely liquefied]] and sucked out. At his wit's end, town doctor Reginald Landers journeys to London to seek the assistance of his old friend pathologist Brian Stanley (Cushing), fearful that a bizarre new bone-dissolving disease is running rampant on Petrie.

Along with Stanley's hunky bone expert colleague David West and West's rich girlfriend Toni Merrill, the gang travels to the island to investigate further, discovering that the sudden epidemic of boneles speople and animals might in some way be connected to the work of reclusive cancer doctor Lawrence Phillips, who has set up shop in the island's requisite creepy Victorian-era mansion. As it turns out, Phillips and his assistants are all dead, and just as boneless as Ian Bellows.

* AttackOfTheMonsterAppendage: Type 2 example. When Constable Harris enters the test animal room, a green tentacle drops down from the ceiling and grabs him. Later, the same tentacle shoots out to try and grab the main characters, and, failing, the full creature emerges into view, giving us our first Silicate.

** Ditto the scene where [[spoiler:Stanley's]] hand is hacked off, but only in the original British version. The American [[IncrediblyLamePun cut]] (ha) adds an insert of the hand getting hacked off, complete with splurting blood.

* DiscretionShot: Used whenever the Silocates suck out people's bones, mostly because they didn't have the budget to show it. The could show the ''aftermath'', however... ick.
