Island Of Death: silly slasher short of scares…
RELEASED 21 March 2011 STUDIO Arrow Video DIRECTOR Nico Mastorakis RATING 15
STARS Bob Behling, Jane Ryall, Jessica Dublin
AVAILABLE ON DVD
This 1977 cult slasher is laughably unscary, following two shagalicious tourists as they murder their way through Mykonos. The plot is farcical and the bloodletting timid, but it deserves props for its depiction of bestiality, golden showers and masturbation on zero budget.
The Austin Powers-style music loses out to the ropey audio, but the new transfer for this DVD release is at least vivid. A commentary with Mastorakis and a re-recording of the song ‘Destination Understanding’ add value.
