Film: Island of Terror

1966 British sci-fi/horror flick starring Peter Cushing, set on a small island which is besieged by "Silicates," bizarre critters with tentacles that kill their victims by sucking their skeletons out. Cushing plays pathologist Brian Stanley, who along with hunky colleague David West and West's girlfriend Toni Merrill, travels to remote Petrie's Island to investigate said monsters, which were accidentally created by reclusive cancer researcher Dr. Phillips. The things reproduce via mitosis and will soon overrun the island, forcing Stanley and West, with help from local doctor Reginald Landers, to race against time to find a means of destroying them.
