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 realise 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 – including death by makeshift blowtorch, samurai sword, dump truck and more!

Shocking, brutal and totally politically incorrect in its outlook, Island of Death is a gruelling cinematic experience devised by director Mastorakis to out-do the excesses of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, which he was hugely inspired by. Now fully uncut and newly-restored from the original negative, fans can enjoy Island of Death in all its sleazy, lurid glory.

'While 'Island of Death' is good for a little scum in the sun, I most certainly wouldn't want to liv

 This legendary Mykonos-set serial killer Sickie proved controversial enough to put future Greek Grindhouse impresario Nico Mastorakis firmly on the exploitation cinema murder map, as in his unrepentantly bestial B-Movie 'Island of Death, only the vilest aspects of human depravity are luridly expressed on the terminally twisted, thrill-seeking lovers horrific holiday island murder spree; as handsome, vastly immoral, curly haired Adonis Christopher (Robert Behling), and his deliciously nubile, innocent-looking partner Celia (Jane Lyle) waste very little time after arriving at picture perfect island Mykonos to gruesomely purge this seaside idyll of what this exceedingly murderous pair perceive to be its more grossly sinful incumbents. Unlike many films of its illicit ilk, Island of Death's disreputable reputation is thoroughly deserved, since many of the film's more explicit interludes are no less deliciously despicable when seen today than upon its initial release. Unlike the equally divisive 'I Spit on your Grave', filth-master Nico Mastorakis has somehow strongly imbued his sun-hazed exploitation classic with a weirdly demented charm that never fails to maintain one's interest, and the vastly undocumented score by Nick Lavranos is, perhaps, one of the more benign aspects to this fascinatingly abrasive, unrepentantly sordid horror film. 'While 'Island of Death' is good for a little scum in the sun, I most certainly wouldn't want to live there!'
