The pirate ship Red Eye named after the captain of the ship had battled a fierce storm in the dead of night and the crew was in peril as the ship ran a ground just a hundred yards from Skull Island. Captain Red Eye got his name when he and his men were aboard another pirate ship stealing treasure from them and one of the pirates poked out the captains eye. After the captain Red Eye’s men killed them they boarded their ship with the stolen treasure and as the captain was going through the treasure in the chest he came across a red ruby and placed the ruby in the socket where his eye got poked out. One of his men laughed and said “Hey Red Eye?” The captain laughed along with him and said “I think I’ll call myself Captain Red Eye and rename our ship Red Eye.” That’s how the captain became known as Captain Red Eye.

Now that we know how captain red eye got his name we now return to the rest of the story. After the captain’s ship ran a ground near Skull Island the captain was able to take his treasure chest aboard a life boat along with two of his crew members and make it to shore safely as his ship was sinking.

Little did the captain and his two crew members know that Skull Island wouldn’t be welcoming them with open arms but instead when their life boat reached shore they would be dead moments later. As the captains two crew members were carrying off the treasure chest from the life boat the captain said “Looks like we’ve got company!” About ten of the islanders were approaching the captain and his men with spears and had them surrounded. The King of the island came up to the captain and said “Welcome to our island.” Captain Red Eye and his men felt relieved but it was all a facade. The King had only one thing on his mind and that was taking the treasure from them and killing them and then shrink their heads to be displayed in the King’s trophy case.

The captain and his two men were escorted to the King’s quarters to be fed and pampered with lavish gifts and the best hut to stay in for the rest of the night. As the captain and his men were getting ready to turn in for the night the King entered their hut and invited them to celebrate their coming to the island. The captain felt honored and accepted the invitation and his men followed the King to the celebration. When they reached the celebration there were native people dancing around a fire and as the captain and his men were sitting with the king near the fire the king had food and drinks brought to the men not knowing it would be their last meal. The captain and his men had no idea that their drinks were laced with something that would leave them paralyzed but able to hear but not speak as the horror was about to begin and there’s nothing the captain and his men could do to stop it. Captain Red Eye and his two crew members paralyzed bodies were dragged to a wooden stump with their heads turned to their side. One of the native people took out a large sword and cut off each one of the pirate’s heads and placed their severed heads in boiling water then shrunk their heads for the king to place them in his trophy case.

To celebrate in the kings honor their decapitated bodies were cooked on the fire and feasted on by the native people and their king as an offering to their gods they worshiped. The treasure chest full of gold wasn’t any use to the king so he had his men bury the treasure somewhere on the island.

Captain Red Eye and his men may have been feared by other pirates in the sea but when their ship ran aground on Skull Island little did they know these native people on their island feared no one and all that was on their minds were shrinking strangers heads and eating their flesh that stepped foot onto their island.

Looks like the captain and his men should have just went down with their ship like the rest of his mates but Captain Red Eye only cared about his treasure and getting off the island in the morning but instead Captain Red Eye and his men gave up their heads instead. If by chance you happen to be sailing these waters and come across Skull Island and in search of Captain Red Eye’s treasure you may just want to keep sailing because if you don’t your head may end up in the King’s trophy case along side of Captain Red Eye and his men for all eternity but I know you are too smart to do such a thing or are you.

I’m sure there is a brave soul or two out there eager to sail to Skull Island with their treasure map in hand ready to be the one and only brave soul that finds Captain Red Eye’s buried treasure and live to tell the tale but like all legends most will die trying and don’t care of the consequences that go along with such a legend. They always say “That won’t happen to me that happens to someone else. What makes legends so interesting is the fact that even though there is no proof just hearsay there is always a money hungry person out there that says “What if there really is buried treasure I’m going to look for it even if it kills me.”
