Nico Mastorakis, Greece, 1976, Arrow Films, Cult

“One of the more insane movies I've seen and that is saying something.”
-- Sarah Jane, LETTERBOXD

From cult director Nico Mastorakis (THE ZERO BOYS), ISLAND OF DEATH is a brutal travelogue of 1970s atrocities, with scenes so strong that the British government was compelled to ban it as a “Video Nasty.” Arriving on an idyllic Greek island, Christopher and Celia appear to be every inch the perfect, handsome young couple. Little do the welcoming locals realize the couple are, in fact, murderous degenerates, determined to spread their own particular brand of perversion across the island. Shocking, brutal and 1000% politically incorrect, ISLAND OF DEATH is a singular cinematic experience devised by 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.
