Title: Name that movie: beware the rain!
Post by: Doh! on March 26, 2018, 01:27:37 AM
I hope you guys can help me: I have a vague memory of seeing some horror movie on TV as a kid in the 70s in which a group of people was on an island(?) or some isolated spot, and they knew once it started raining, they were going to die. Maybe due to toxins in air? Some other sci-fi explanation?? Naturally, the movie ended with the rain just beginning to fall.

It felt like a British movie to me, but I could be way off the mark. I'd love to track it down and watch it again. It's been AT LEAST 40 years since I've seen it!

Was it made in the 70's or you saw it in the 70's? Black and White or color?

Gotta be either '60s, or '70s. Maybe a TV movie?

Was the sea water also toxic?  I have a vague recollection of a researcher on a very small island who is joined by 2 or three people.  The sea water has a deadly biological or chemical toxin.

Don't remember if they also feared the rain.

Thanks for the replies, fellers!

My memory of it was in color. I'm pretty sure I watched it during the day as a child, either during the summer or home sick from school -- so that means it was probably a movie, not made-for TV. Not sure if the water was toxic, either. I just remember it being a small group of people who were dreading the impending rain. Given the era, it might have been radiation.

The mystery continues...

Oh.  Not necessarily an island?

Sounds like "The Day the World Ended", 1955.  (But it is in B&W.)

OR


There was an awful COLOR remake in 1967;

"In the Year 2889".

There's an Outer Limits episode like this. The rain turns people into bug eyed mutates who can read monds. Not on an island....on another planet.

I don't remember it being a creature feature, but that ending is starting to smell familiar!

Thanks!

Any chance it was The Devil's Rain?
