Editorial Reviews

Tom Selleck, Phyllis Davis, Marta Kristen. Four women convicted of first-degree murder are condemned to a government-designated dumping ground on San Bruno Island-where they will be free to do anything they want except to leave. But with no laws and killers all around, they will be forced to commit extreme acts of violence and depravery. 1973/color/89 min/R/fullscreen.

Customer Reviews

Do not buy this DVD until they get unedited version.

The Legacy Entertainnent version of Terminal Island is an edited TV print minus all nudity.
Peter Garcia
After they finished chopping it up, there isn't much left.

This is a good movie in it's original form. The movie for sale is edited down and not worth buying. Back of package shows R rating and then in small print tells you they have edited it. Putting R on package is fraudulent. Do not buy this DVD until they get unedited version.

This DVD has been edited down to the point it could have a "G" rating. After they finished chopping it up, there isn't much left.

As of September 10, 2010, there is a new version of this movie available (I haven't seen it). From the dreadcentral web site:

Terminal Island will sport a brand new 16x9 widescreen master taken from UCLA/the director's archived print.

Play with Inmates: audio commentary with Sean Kenney and Don Marshall moderated by Scott Spiegel and Bill Olsen.
Introduction by Mickey Zide of Dimension Pictures

there are two versions of this movie - one is edited and one is not - do not buy the edited one - it is not worth it.

I was fully expecting to replace my VHS tape from the 70's. Our cult following this movie was severely disappointed to find it was edited and still contained the R rating.

PURCHASING THIS DVD WAS A BIG DISAPOINTMENT! I WISH I HAD READ THE REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING IT!

I SAW THIS MOVIE BACK IN THE MID-1970'S,AND I HAPPEND TO BE A LOVER OF B-MOVIES BUT,THIS MOVIE WAS EDITED FOR TELEVISION SO THE BAD WORDS AND THE NUDITY WAS CUT OUT OF THE MOVIE! I WAS A FAN OF MISS PHYLISS DAVIS AND TO SEE HER SCENES OF NUDITY CUT OUT PISSED ME OFF!

IF ANYBODY HAS A VERSION THATS UNEDITED,PLEASE EMAIL ME!

Thank you Code Red for finally releasing this drive-in classic in widescreen on DVD. It is great that Code Red and Scorpion Releasing are releasing these classics. These cheapo movies hold up really well after all these years. They just don't make cheap bad movies anymore. Now they make expensive bad movies. Terminal Island was made in 1973 by an up and coming female director Stephanie Rothman. She would eventually make several drive-in classics in the '70s. Too bad she didn't work much with Roger Corman (look what Corman did with Joe Dante, Jonathan Demme, and many others). This version of Terminal Island is anamorphic widescreen 1.85 and looks ok for being s verrry low budget film shot in a few days. Cannot wait for Code Red to release the 1972 classic The Roommates. It was to come out years ago, who knows. Hopefully after releasing Terminal Island on DVD, maybe that will inspire them to release more drive-in classic s from the '70s unedited and anamorphic widescreen. Stephanie Rothman films especially! Thanks again Code Red!!

Information on this item shows it as being rated-R. However the box shows R rating with this addition. "Some scenes of violence and language have been edited" This also includes all nudity. To watch this copy is like watching a "edited for television" cut. I returned my copy....

I remember seeing this movie at the now gone Embassy Theatre in San Francisco. This woman gets convicted of a crime she did not commit, and gets sent to Terminal Island where she is dumped off with just a couple of cans of food, and you are expected to survive. This movie is pure camp, with Judy from Lost In Space that plays a prostitute, to Tom Selleck, who was the island doctor, that sniffed homemade drugs and stayed stoned all the time. Great 70's fun that has never been shown on paycable since The Movie Channel in 1982!. Great Fun
