A group of scientists lands on an uncharted island in the Pacific to search for a previous expedition that disappeared and to continue research about the effects of radiation from the Bikini Atoll nuclear tests on the island's plant and sea life. They learn to their horror that the other scientists were eaten and their minds absorbed by giant mutated crabs that have gained intelligence.
