The smuggler, Orion, is said to be the only survivor of a mysterious haunted island somewhere in the Philippine Sea from which no one has ever returned. The island itself was written out of history books and purposely left off the maps. As the occult grapevine has it, it's said to be where the last samurai clan was banished by the Japanese government near the turn of the 20th Century. The university professor, Pr. Teach, is seeking out the Blood Saber of the Last Samurai Clan which he's been looking for all of his life. The occult specialist, Rooke, who also happens to own an occult book shop stumbles upon a rare book that shows the map of Island Macabre and wants to document the island for her own book she's compiling.

Orion takes them to the island where they immediately run smack-dab into a squall and are ambushed by pirates that prey on cargo ships. But during the ambush, they all wind up shipwrecked on Island Macabre. As Orion and company escape into the island they come face to face with a modern city that is completely devoid of life. This was something that wasn't around on Orion's first trip. But as it appears, the island once had a civilization that was killed off, on or about a year ago, according to the last newspaper in the vending machine. It's soon realized that the last samurai clan may have awaken. So, on the run from pirates, undead samurai and surviving the elements, the hero trio, set off to find Teach's saber and brave the elements of Island Macabre.
