Island of death...
11 June 2008 | by (Oxford, England) – See all my reviews

Mainly appalling nonsense about an island where the Occult is causing numerous gruesome deaths and furore. Director Tim Kincaid made four movies for Full Moon, the others being 'Breeders'; 'Robot Holocaust' and 'Mutant Hunt' - all seem to be fairly independent films relying on Full Moon primarily for funding/releasing. 'The Occultist' features many of the cast and crew of Kincaid's earlier 'Bad Girls' Dormitory' and despite showcasing some good effects (courtesy of Ed French) and disjointed but fairly cool music from Guy Moon (Including excerpts from his 'Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama' and 'Creepozoids') and then regular Full Moon composer Carl Dante (bits of his 'Cellar Dweller' score are used here too). Kincaid came from Gay porn to make a few sci-fi movies took a ten year break and then became a full time gay porn director for company Titan (a mere coincidence and nothing to do with Charles Band's Titan Productions company who made this film). Though only 80 minutes the film never seems to end, the acting is terrible, the script with many feeble jokes tiresome and the entire film a cocktail of many scenes which barely relate to any reasonable story.
