Two British tourists named Christopher and Celia arrive on the Greek island of Mykonos in order to see the sights and rub elbows with the locals. Christopher likes the island because it has 350 churches spread across the landscape, meaning that the people on the island are especially religious. This perceived religiosity of the locals gives Christopher and Celia the idea that people of loose moral standards and questionable backgrounds aren't welcome. Therefore, Christopher decides Mykonos is the perfect place to start a personal pogrom against the local degenerates. The two embark on a bloody rampage of bizarre violence against select segments of the population by torturing, mutilating, and killing a French painter, two homosexuals, a lesbian, and a woman who sleeps around.Read more ›
The film is expertly directed, wonderfully photographed, and the writing is way above that of the average low-budget fare served up in this genre. In spite of his intentions to whip up a quick little moneymaker, Mastorakis manages to cook up a gritty but nonetheless compelling little satire that harshly but literately addresses such social issues as unfettered hedonism and sexual promiscuity, religious expediency, homophobia, incest, and much more.
So the film elements do, as a whole, reveal that the Mastorakis is talented and cares about the ultimate quality of his work. But it also offers fans of the splatter-film genre those elements that they crave. Indeed, there is T&A aplenty--cute and curvy little blonde Jane Ryall, who plays the female lead, peels off her attire several times throughout, and other beauties also appear in the buff from time to time--and though many of the actual killings take place just out of frame, blood still splashes into the picture, and the various methods of homicide depicted are fresh (even today!) and creative enough to keep the most ardent genre fans happy.Read more ›
The director has an interview on the DVD in which he states that this movie was only made to shock people and make money. He said that they were wanting to cash in on the success of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. While this movie is nowhere near the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, for the right audience, this movie has its place.
would get the distribution rights to this film and put the time and money into a HD Remastering of
Island of Death
This film has gained a major cult status mostly due to it's over the top sex & violence
newlyweds go on there honeymoon to Greek island of Mykonos
you learn something is off about the male character
when he is banging his wife in the phone booth while talking to his mother on the phone!
It just gets weirder and weirder the guys is a sociopath who dislikes men who cheat on there wives! just about anyone on this island isn't safe from the two Bonnie and Clyde wannabes
who just wanna kill everyone
If they don't kill them they trying have sex with others (Including a goat near the start of the film)
While they are murdering they take photos of the killing with a instant camera (that way there is evidence/proof of there crimes all of there hotel room)
a cop is introduces into the film but, the love birds run from him (escaping piloting a two man airplane) where the cop gets hung up on while high above the sky needless to say he gets hung off a wing! then they cut his lifeless body down! **Spoiler**
The cop is only introduced just to kill him imo to add more of a body count
This film is more or less smoke and mirrors it's a very cheap exploitation film that tries to much
Is it the worst so-called Horror film ever?Read more ›

I give this a solid 3.5 out of 5 . While I won't be revisiting this any time soon because I don't think this film has that kind of replay value, it is unique and a story that's... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Chris B.

It's brutal. If your into Texas Chainsaw type flicks you'll love it, if not stay away. It's not that Island movie that had Michael Caine.Published 10 months ago by The joker 308
