Goofs

The murderous couple are using a rope tied to an airplane to drag a potential victim. He is running to keep up before they take off. In a shot from behind the plane, he falls down. The next scene, the plane is in the air and he is hanging off the wing. See more »

Alternate Versions

The original opening titles for the film were long and basic, consisting of the credits on a white/grey background, with a camera clicking sound when moving from one credit to the next. Later prints, including the uncut German and the Image Entertainment DVDs, feature much quicker credits with red typewriter style credits on a black background, with a song playing. See more »

The Moral Avengers! Oh! Really?

This movie is really twisted, I loved it! If you're easily offended by extreme sexual and violent content, don't see it! Death scenes are numerous and sometimes very original. The lead female is never dressed for more than 3 minutes (she's a beauty) and when she takes it off prepare to see something pretty BAD happening. She and her "husband" hate deviant people, they want them all dead. The only problem they have is that they ended up on an island where almost no one is "normal", it's like a perverts heaven so the job is never finished... Acting isn't so bad and the landscapes are so beautiful they made me want to see the island of Mykonos with my own eyes. The ending is a must see, I can't even find the words to explain it but its some kind of a sweet revenge for the goat that we see in the beginning of the movie...
