The Flesh Eaters are the main antagonists of the 1964 American horror film The Flesh Eaters.

A washed-up actress and her assistant are forced by a storm to land on a small island, which is inhabited by a United States government agent-turned-Nazi scientist who has bred a species of microbes capable of devouring a human within seconds.

Appearance

The Flesh Eaters are tiny microscopic amoeba-like creatures that can combine their biomass to form larger masses.

Powers and Abilities

The Flesh Eaters possess the following powers and abilities:

  • Combination of biomass
  • Rapid consumption of flesh

Fate

After it is discovered that the microbes eat only flesh and leave behind blood, Murdoch injects a sample of hemoglobin into the now giant conglomeration of microbes, killing it.

Trivia

  • Because of its (at-the-time) graphic content, the film is considered one of the first gore films.
