Fun film for all the family.
7 January 2004 | by (Norfolk, England) – See all my reviews

A seemingly normal couple, Christopher and Celia, arrive on a small, remote Greek island. Though we soon find out that this couple aren't very normal at all. They start to kill the inhabitants of the island that Christopher sees as sinful in some very imaginative ways. We then later find out that this couple are even less normal as they are brother and sister.

As a video nasty I really wasn't expecting much at all as the majority of them are terrible. I was extremely surprised to find that Island of Death is a very good film. The acting is atrocious but that's to be expected. The girl that plays Celia makes up for her terrible acting by being amazingly good looking and she spends a lot of the film naked so that's a pretty good thing. Its just a shame that this was the only film she was ever in. I wouldn't have minded seeing her naked in a few more films.

The couple really go on a rampage on this small island. First we are treated to a guy who Celia seduces, being nailed to the floor by his hand and is force feed paint. We then have a gay couple who are killed by a sword and a gunshot to the head. I cant remember the order of the rest of the kills but we get a police officer who is sent to the island to get the couple, being hanged from the wing of an aeroplane in flight. Check out the obvious dummy in the wide shots. There is an older woman who Christopher first urinates on and after a while she quit enjoys it. She is then beaten, taken outside and is beheaded with a bulldozer. Another great scene shows a lesbian heroine addict being burnt to death with an aerosol flamethrower. All of these scenes are very imaginative but the effects are not too great.

There is also an extremely strange scene where the obvious psycho Christopher goes into the garden of the house he is renting and has sex with a goat. It all looks laughably fake but make amusing viewing. There is also a strange scene where they have sex in a phone box and Christopher decides to ring his mother back in London to tell her exactly what she is doing. This all shows what a deranged person we are watching. A small thing I liked about the film is the sound of a camera taking a picture during some of the transitions. That was a nice touch and goes well as the couple are constantly taking pictures of the thing they get up to.

The dialog in the film is at best terrible but this adds to the amusing viewing. Often the actors fumble their words as if the director would never take a second take.

Despite the bad acting and terrible dialog, the film is extremely amusing and entertaining to watch. Anyone that is a fan of horror should find something to love, or rather be disgusted about.
