Storyline

A group of teen-agers vacationing in the tropics take a boat out to a seemingly deserted island. They soon find, however, that the island is inhabited by a wealthy recluse and his staff. While their host is initially hospitable, he quickly reveals his true purpose: to hunt down and kill each of his visitors, as he has done with everyone unlucky enough to set foot on his island.

Goofs

In the scene where Belaeu shoots the small horse statue to illustrate the deadliness of his crossbow, you can plainly see the fake bolt (arrow) hanging in the air a few inches away from the just shattered statue - a moment later it's stuck in the wall. See more »

Quotes

Johnny Randall: You mean you hunted those people down? Then killed them, and did *that* to them?
Dr. Albert Balleau: Exactly. I hunted them. And shall I tell you why? I'd been a scholar all my life. I was curator of a large museum. And the war began. I who had never killed anything in my life assigned to duty as a sniper - a sharpshooter - because of my steady hand and keen eyesight.

A Cut-Rate Version of "Most Dangerous Game"
22 March 2001 | by (Palm Springs, CA USA) – See all my reviews

BLOODLUST! (1961) is yet another retelling of "Most Dangerous Game" with a lackluster cast and inferior production values. The mostly youthful actors and actresses are terrible and turn in cardboard performances. There is one exception, however, and that is Wilton Graff as Belleau, a latter-day Count Zaroff wielding a crossbow to dispatch his victims on the remote island. Graff gives a very fey performance (imagine what Vincent Price could have done with this one!) as he stalks his prey and includes them in his tableaux of trophies and macabre death scenes. He chews scenery but at least attempts to raise the level of this hopeless mess which is why this effort isn't a complete waste. Beware the substandard print by Madacy Entertainment on a double-feature DVD which is accompanied by ATOM AGE VAMPIRE. Cast includes Robert Reed, June Kenney, Joan Lora, Eugene Persson, Walter Brooke and Lilyan Chauvin.
