Pirates Of Ghost Island
Top Customer Reviews
At times with the pirates on the screen I felt like I was at the local Renaissance Fair. This is not a bad thing. I enjoyed the pirates, I enjoyed the other ramdom entities haunting the Island, and I enjoyed seeing characters i did not like for one reason or another being done away with. A couple of grumbling points - the blood did not just look silly, it was annoyingly so. Like 1st grade play Ceasar just got stabbed quality. Some of the "special effects" - even though i think that were done for camp, were sketchy enough to miss the mark.
Bottom line, I enjoyed the movie. I laughed out loud a couple of times, which scores it points. And there were at least half a dozen cheesy lines that not only will I not forget, I will randomly blurt them out to either impress or annoy my friends. I mean, someone actually exclaims, ""Holy double-s**t! - a cannibalistic pirate, combined with an immortal demon? What a nightmare!"
So take this for what it is, good fun. Its not scary, its not particularly gory (unless you freak out at slasher comedy) and has some funny lines. And goofy folks dressed as Pirates seemingly having the time of their lives, and women running around in bikinis too. Good fun!
It is NOT a serious movie! It is NOT a comedy, albeit laughable! It is NOT a horror movie! It is indescribably BAD!
Don't let the one cent price for a new copy suck you in. With Amazon's recent 33% shipping increase from $2.99 to $3.99, that's a total of $4.00 - better spent on . . . well anything else!
Some of the effects were a little cheesey, but overall a great flick to add to your collection.
Anyway I checked out a recent flick that my good friend Kristin wrote for a small production company that got distribution from Lionsgate that is the exact opposite of the recent series of Johnny Depp pirate adventures...Ok it flat out parodies them. I'm talking about Pirates of Ghost Island
What we have here Kiddies is the story of a group of marooned college graduates that are all trapped on an island that is inhabited by the ghosts of a group of Pirates that are eating anyone that happens to step foot on the island. What is different about this group is the fact that one of the girls is the reincarnation/descendant of the head pirate's wife and h wants her back. think of the Mummy with Pirates.
Now as far as the movie goes I like the story and the script. The dialogue was cheesy and campy but for a film like this it is intended to be. does anyone remember a flick from the 1960s called A monster in the Surf well not really any of you people but the guys that I know will remember it. I feel that this movie was made for the lovers of the cheesy B-Movie Lovers like me that like cheesy dialogue as well as hot girls in Bikinis and low prices sets and stock footage. I feel that Kristin knew what she was writing when she was asked to pen the script.Read more ›

This is a "straight to video" film. Not much acting, zero "plot", so-so costumes... kind of a bust as to time spent watching it. Read morePublished on March 30, 2013 by Peter N. Anderson
Melissa Powell is a stand-out in this otherwise sort of unimpressive but campy pirate flick. Watch it to hear the pirate acccents fade in and out and to see some terribly bad... Read morePublished on November 11, 2007 by Hannah Heller
