Fantasy Island is... A Genius Concept That Just Barely Delivers.
18 February 2020 | by NarniaIsAwesomeSee all my reviews

The biggest selling point of this film, to me, was the idea of re-making a classic feel-good show into a horror movie. It truly is an imaginative approach, and certainly relevant given all the remakes/reboots of the movie's decade. That being said, it is not without flaws and oversights.

The characters are fairly interesting, and the plot does exist. There is a mystery and everyone's situations payoff and come together in the end. So kudos for that. But there are traces of lazy writing and some annoying plot holes, if you think about it too much. The performances depend on the person. Michael Pena, who portrays Mr. Roarke, is excellent in his role, while Michael Rooker is quite hammy as a rogue jungle-detective.

But one must give the filmmakers credit for refraining from an R-rating, especially given the previous success of titles like 'Joker' and 'Us.' The horror here is pretty creepy without being stomach turning.

While it is not faultless, 'Fantasy Island' is a step in the right direction as far as creative re-makes, and horror that isn't just for gore fans. I hope Blumhouse can take lessons from this and learn to improve upon this model, instead of just giving up due to a fair amount of negative responses.
