A scientist, his assistant, his servant, his daughter and her fiancée are all staying on a remote island. When the boat which delivers supplies reaches them, they warn them of the coming hurricane and advise them to stay with them. On the same island a mad scientist has been developing an experiment to create half-humans, but as a result it has also spawned huge carnivorous shrews. The hurricane hitting the island enables the shrews to escape the lab and they begin to attack and eat anything they encounter.
