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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* DiscretionShot: When Ian is found in the cave. Later we see the boneless corpse in all its gooey glory. We also don't see the Silicates getting the cows. We just cut from them to the horrified onlookers, with Argyle saying, "It's all over" to indicate that the Silicates have finished feeding.

* LateToTheParty: The helicopter pilot, who drops the main characters off on the island at the beginning, then returns at the end, having missed the entire adventure. He's probably thankful for that.
