A yacht containing seven people gets damaged in a severe storm and winds up on a deserted island. The shipwreck survivors run afoul of both poisonous mushrooms that cause them to mutate and grotesque humanoid fungi monsters that inhabit the place.

While the premise sounds laughable and ridiculous, this film works remarkably well thanks to Ishiro Honda's capable direction, an initially light and breezy tone which becomes more progressively dark, despairing and nightmarish as the absorbingly strange story unfolds, Hajime Koizuma's bright, fluid, polished cinematography, the stunningly hideous make-up effects, the believably drawn characters, Sadao Bekku's brooding gloom-doom score, the deliciously spooky and mysterious atmosphere, convincing performances by the sturdy cast, Takeshi Kimura's intriguing and wildly imaginative script, and a potent and provocative central theme on how such basic human weaknesses as lust, greed and selfishness sow the seeds of man's ruination. Offbeat, original and well worth checking out.
