5.0 out of 5 stars UNCUT!!!!! 8 Feb 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Island of death is quite possibly one of the most demented movies ever made featuring a puritanical young couple murduring and raping their way through a greek island in order to save its inhabitants from corrupting influences. Beyond that I feel the other reviewers have successfully managed to convey the sheer unadulterated bad taste of this film that lead to it being classified as a video nasty and removed from britains shelves for decades. A shame really because mostly it all seems somewhat tounge-in-cheek and deliberately over the top, and niko mastorakis certainly knows how to shoot a decent film. (check out edge of terror Edge Of Terror [DVD] [1986] a highly underrated thriller that deserves watching.)
Now it seems Arrow, (doing a supurb job, in spite of what some of its critics on here might say) have not only managed to pull off the major coup of releasing the film totally uncut but it seems like their chucking in a few nice extras too!

This is definately getting my pre-order, if you havent seen the film yet proceed with caution, it really is pretty vile (in a good way.)

This violent film is about a man and a woman hiding out on a greek island torturing, raping and killing everyone and everything in there way and for no apparent reason. Complete with shock ending! (as though the goat scene wasn't enough.)
Jump in, watch this film and be repulsed, it's worth it!
Great Arrow Films packaging as well as features!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, old-fashioned Video Nasty 12 Mar 2003
Format:DVD
Outside of the ranks of fans of hardcore horror movies, this film is not that well known. However, amongst those of us who like this sort of thing, it is something of a minor classic. It became notorious at the time as one of the most depraved films ever made, and to this day, it probably still is. Basically, if you are are sensitive kind of soul, you don't really want to watch this film.
The premise of Island Of Death is that a couple, Christopher and Celia, are on holiday on the Greek island of Mykonos, and they decide to get rid of perversion with a religious kind of zeal. They see this perversion in a gay couple, a heroin-addicted lesbian, a goat, and worst of all, a French painter! Needless to say, this being a Vipco release, bloodshed is plentiful, with such 'treats' as rape, bestiality, incest, crucifixion, face burning, hanging, harpooning, paint drinking, impaling with garden tools, it just goes on and on. Yes, this is one brutal film. Predictably enough, it has suffered at the hands of the BBFC, to the tune of about 4 minutes or so I believe, but it is done with a little more care than, for instance, Cannibal Ferox, so the film doesn't suffer too greatly from it.
Basically, you know what you're getting with a Vipco Vaults Of Horror release, and the huge "Previously Banned" warning on the cover of the DVD case is also a bit of a giveaway. If you like your films bloody and violent from start to finish, this is a treat. If you're easily shocked, this will certainly shock you.

Format:DVD
This is one of the original 'video nasties', and still only available in a heavily cut version in the UK (although easily available in uncut R1 format). Apparently made quickly to make cash for its first time director Nico Mistorakis, it is the story of a young tourist couple, Christopher and Celia who arrive on the picturesque island of Mykonos. At first we think them innocents, entering a world of terror. Soon it turns out that in fact they are the monsters, Christopher in particular being concerned to rid the word of 'perverts', photographing the mayhem as they go through local acquaintances - at first for kicks, then to cover their tracks. Much of the film is just a pretext for a catalogue of imaginative slaughter. The acting is variable at best (Jayne Ryall, playing Celia looking particularly bemused at the whole business, and this was her only film). The film includes sex and rape, both human and animal but, like so much of its ilk, is ironically coy about these physical acts, showing only such nudity and rare bursts of pubes as would sit easily in a softcore sex comedy. The exception is perhaps the urination scene which, because it is so unexpected and rare away from porno cinema, does at least raise eyebrows. The much vaunted 'goat rape' is patently faked and unconvincing but, as it takes place very early on at least alerts viewers to the real nature of the psychopathic Chris.

Surprisingly for a film with such a strong reputation, none of the violence really shocks today, although the range of deaths (by crucifixion and paint poisoning, hanging from a plane wing, heroin overdose, sword and scythe, bulldozer, etc) have an ingenious variety - a testimony to the director's plan to outdo competing exploitation films in range.
