Marketing for 'Island Of The Damned' is nothing short of criminal
18 July 2007 | by (Manchester UK) – See all my reviews

I feel conned/misled/ripped off.

I bought 'Island Of The Damned' which is clearly a horror title. It was deliberately renamed to make it sound like a horror because nobody was interested in 'Private Property'. What I'm most annoyed about is the unattributed quote on the front which states, "At last... a film as spooky as 'Cabin Fever' and as chilling as 'Saw'." As it doesn't state who the quote is from I can only assume it was made up by whoever was marketing the movie which surely is illegal?? If not it should be! Because the film was in no way spooky or chilling. It wasn't a horror and wasn't even passable as a thriller. It's more likely to slow your pulse right down. It's more of a mish-mash of drama, weird art-house, crime and comedy. It also laughably had 5 stars above the quote and after seeing the film nobody in their right mind would ever give it 5 stars so that is further confirmation that it is a complete fabrication.

It wasn't even a good film but I'm not annoyed at seeing a bad movie; I see lots. To be fair this had its moments actually and some potential, but ultimately it was pretty dull and dragged on. I'm just annoyed that I was conned into buying a horror that turned out to not be a horror.

I don't like being lied to and the unattributed quote was obviously a lie as it in no way describes the film on the DVD. Furthermore, the inappropriate renaming of the title was done deliberately to mislead.

Whoever marketed this needs their ass suing!
