The Killer Shrews (1959)

McLendon-Radio Pictures
Directed by Ray Kellogg
My rating: BOMB
IMDb Wikipedia

A boat captain and his mate delivering supplies to a scientist and his group on a remote island get stranded by an approaching hurricane. It turns out the scientist is conducting experiments on shrews which has turned them into dog-sized mutants which run amok on the island. The group barricade themselves in the compound but a few shrews get through during the hurricane. More people die as they try to make an escape to the captain's boat. Potentially intriguing story ruined by low budget effects (dogs in shrew costumes) and wooden acting.
