THE LUCKY ONES GOT THEIR BRAINS BLOWN OUT!!
Welcome to Mykonos, the holiday destination of choice for sun, sea and slaughter! From cult director Nico Mastorakis, Island of Death is a travelogue of atrocities with scenes so strong that the British Government was once compelled to ban it as a “video nasty”.
Arriving on the idyllic Greek island, Christopher and Celia appear to be every inch the perfect, handsome young couple. Little do the welcoming locals realize that they are in fact a pair of murderous degenerates, determined to spread their own particular brand of perversion across the island. DIY crucifixions, opportunistic bestiality, sexual peeing and murder by all conceivable forms ensue!
Shocking, brutal and totally politically incorrect in its outlook, Island of Death is a gruelling cinematic experience like no other. Fully uncut and newly-restored from the original negative, fans can enjoy in all its sleazy, lurid glory.
Reviews"Absolutely nuts; often damn funny in dark, ridiculous, and terribly inappropriate ways."
