Viewing Single Post From: island of death (Mykonos)

I didn't like ISLAND OF DEATH the first time I saw it, but the more I see it, the more I appreciate its bizarre nihilism. Nothing much is explained about the couple's descent into psychopathology, but that's what makes it frightening and believable for me. You read about people like this all the time.

Serrador's WHO COULD KILL A CHILD? aka ISLAND OF DEATH is a model of menace done subtly and with great skill. Recently (and not so recently), it has been copied by PLAGUE TOWN, THE CHILDREN, and CHILDREN OF THE CORN. The ending is very NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.

Both films are good for a double bill with well chosen "friends".

Mastorakis is interviewed on the Image DVD.
