By May 1943, the war in the South Pacific is a deadly island by island fight with both sides suffering high casualties. However, the American marines and the Japanese military fighting on Bougainville Island find something else to terrorize them besides the war. They hear sick laughter in the night followed by a light where they gaze upon soldiers from both sides hung, impaled, beheaded, and a “creature” ripping through the stomach of a dead man from the inside. Private Eric Davis feels fortunate to escape when the Gallo picks him up, but the American vessel is promptly sunk.
