DescriptionMatt Corbin, a vacationing magazine writer, takes a fishing trip to Minnesota, and stumbles across a lake, near a ghost-town, where all the fish have mysteriously died. None of the locals care to talk about it but he learns that a group of former-Nazi’s-turned-communist have purchased a lodge on an island, in the middle of the fish-killing lake, and have built some kind of laboratory. Never one to pass up a chance to sell a story to a magazine, Matt decides to investigate. His only ally is Janet Keller, the sister of the local doctor who has been caught up into whatever those Commie-Nazis are up to out there in their laboratory on an island lake. What they are up to, with Soviet financing, is the development of diseases to use in bacteriological warfare against the United States of America, starting in Minnesota.

    Just a heads-up, this was apparently re-released in 2016 on DVD and that one appears to run as 1hr 22min instead of 1hr 17min. I think that copy contains an opening scene with some Soviets looking at a map of North America, although I’m not sure if that’s the entire three missing minutes.

    I watched the film last night (the 77 minute one from RL) and although it drags some in the middle and makes almost no sense if you stop and think about the bad guys (Howard Hughes, who owned RKO, ordered reshoots to change them from secret Nazis to secret Commies because it was the 1950s and that’s what they did back then), it’s a pretty solid flick overall. Quite a lot better than I was expecting.
