brilliantly bad
12 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Caught Dead Man's Island on ITV in the UK recently and was completely bowled over by how stupendously bad it was. It was brilliant! What a cast -- Barbara Eden! William Shatner! Morgan Fairchild! Traci Lords!!!! Don (not Donny) Most!!! Christopher Atkins! Olivia Hussey! (poor thing) Malcom McDowell!! (Wasn't Rosie Grier available?) The writing and the acting were cringe-inducing from the start.

Overflowing with cliches -- the tough but genteel Southern journo-cum-investigator (that would be Barb Eden, playing Henrietta O'something -- better known as Henry O.), the wealthy industrialist (that would be Shatner as Chase Prescott), the secluded island cursed by Indian legend. I'm not making this up!

Best of all was Barbara Eden's outrageous lime green poly-blend pantsuit she wore as she interrogated the others about their whereabouts when the shots rang out that nearly killed Chase Prescott. Barbara, honey, you look positively Boca Ra
