Storyline

A group of teen-agers vacationing in the tropics take a boat out to a seemingly deserted island. They soon find, however, that the island is inhabited by a wealthy recluse and his staff. While their host is initially hospitable, he quickly reveals his true purpose: to hunt down and kill each of his visitors, as he has done with everyone unlucky enough to set foot on his island. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

In the scene where Belaeu shoots the small horse statue to illustrate the deadliness of his crossbow, you can plainly see the fake bolt (arrow) hanging in the air a few inches away from the just shattered statue - a moment later it's stuck in the wall. See more »

Quotes

Johnny Randall: You mean you hunted those people down? Then killed them, and did *that* to them?
Dr. Albert Balleau: Exactly. I hunted them. And shall I tell you why? I'd been a scholar all my life. I was curator of a large museum. And the war began. I who had never killed anything in my life assigned to duty as a sniper - a sharpshooter - because of my steady hand and keen eyesight.
[chuckles]
Dr. Albert Balleau: It amuses me now that I found it distasteful at first. And as time went by I adjusted my new activity. For what had been an unpleasant duty ...

not as terrible as its rep
7 December 2004 | by ThrownMuseSee all my reviews

Entertaining take on "The Most Dangerous Game" featuring "teens" (you know, the kind in their late-20s), violence and a bit of gore. Apparently it was a feature on MST3K...but the movie isn't as terrible as that would suggest. It does feature some obnoxiously 50s dialogue, characters, and acting, but it also features some really fun stuff (like a teeny bopper girl that knows judo and flips a bad guy into a vat of acid...and we get to watch him decompose! how can you not love that?!). The dad from the Brady Bunch is in this, and is annoying as ever, and the plot gets a little too Scooby Doo in parts. But there are some fairly creepy scenes here. In fact, I enjoyed this much more than I probably should have. My rating: 5/10
