FEAR ISLAND is yet another dull slasher movie about a group of friends assembling on a remote spot and being bumped off one by one by a mysterious killer. Who's the one responsible? Does anybody actually care?
The answer is a resounding no. FEAR ISLAND is content to plod along without trying very hard to deliver thrills that are either genuinely exciting or indeed original. This Canadian TV movie was obviously made on a low budget; it has some violence, but otherwise the entire execution seems tame and subdued.
The poor quality of the cast doesn't help, with lots of screaming and overacting from the majority of the cast members. Not until I checked the film on the IMDb did I realise that Shawn Ashmore wasn't in this, but instead his twin brother, who isn't as charismatic an actor. Yeah, that's about as interesting as it gets.
