Did You Know?


Nico Mastorakis was inspired to make this film after seeing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974). He noticed how much money that film made, andd decided to make a more violent and perverse film in order to make even more money. See more »


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 »


Christopher: No one wants to be brought up with perversion. Children must be brought up in a proper way. Nature is strong.

Alternate Versions

The video version of this film was passed uncut in Australia in the early 1980s, after twice being rejected for a cinema certificate in the 1970s. It was released under the title 'Island of Perversion' on the Showcase Video label, and is the exact same version as the old uncut UK 'video nasty'. It is now difficult to find in video stores, though it might be located in a well stocked adult section of a typical store. This is due to its porn-like cover of a naked woman being embraced by a man. 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...
