Shipwreaked couple land on island with horrible secret
1 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Pity the Thomason's. Heaven really seems to have it in for the couple. First they are shipwrecked in an open boat. Then they land on an island that is the portal to hell. Based on the William Hope Hodgson short story "Voice in the Night",this episode of the anthology series Suspicion was fairly ambitious for the time. Well cast with James Donald and Barbara Rush in the leads the story is both eerie and creepy and is cautionary table underlying the old adage that you had better eat your vegetables or they will eat you. The island itself is rather terrifying place but it kind of grows on you.Patrick MacNee "John Steed" plays the ships captain and James Coburn has a barely visible role as a curious deck hand.

Suspicion was produced by Hitchcock's Shamley Production and was supposedly based on his Story They Wouldn't Let Me Do On TV. The episode has not been placed on VCR or DVD but there is a copy floating around on YouTube.It has the feel of a Thriller episode and I thought that is where I had first seen it until I stumbled upon it.Like the other reviewers I had not seen it since I was a kid so it was fun to view it again after half a century.
