The West Indies island of Portuga exists mainly for sponge diving. But the best area of collection is frequented by a very large manta ray. Nina loses her brother to the creature and is comforted by a newly arrived minister, who seems very interested in an old poster offering a reward for a convict recently escaped from nearby Devil's Island. More deaths attributed to the sea bat follow before Nina resolves her feelings for her comforter.Written by

Pretty dull action/love story has a man escaping Devil's Island and landing on another island where he pretends to be a priest and falls for the island vamp. The fisherman on the island also struggle with a huge sea bat. The love story stuff is so unbelievable that you can never take it serious and the leads really aren't too interesting. The underwater footage of the sea bat is very well done and there's some nice special effects work with the creature, although I think a few of the scenes were filmed with a real bat. Boris Karloff has a minor role.
