Trivia:
Director Nico Mastorakis became inspired to make this film after viewing The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). He noticed how much money that film was making and decided to make a film more violent and perverse in order to make even more money.See more »

Exploitation at its very best!, 29 September 2006
Author: cuttyface from New Zealand

Island of death has it all - sex, torture, racism, sexism, homophobia, Christian-ploitation, hippies, gratuitous nudity, gay sex, lesbian sex, rape, gay rape, golden showers, fart as an insult, mysogyny, drugs, bestiality...

THIS is what exploitation cinema is all about. Before I continue, if you want graphic sex, look elsewhere, this is strictly soft-core (and includes bush in full frontal due to the era in which it was filmed), and the violence is not really graphic gore (gore-hounds look elsewhere too).

But for trash auteurs, this will be the movie you've always wanted to watch (even if you didn't know it). It gets more and more obscene and ridiculous as the movie continues, breaking all rules of political correctness and taste. The madness is set to a wacky, funky, totally inappropriate 70s soundtrack and has moments of absolute hilarity, often coming from the dialog. I was very impressed with this film watching it for the first time last night and will watch it many, many more times. Of all the 'cult' films I've got from internet shopping stores, this is the most satisfying thus far, absolutely not a let down. Unless you have the wrong idea of what sort of movie this will be (ie: extremely gory, porn or an A-grade movie) you can't go wrong.
