Customer Review

on 28 January 2009
This infamous video nasty is about a group of holidaying adults who go to one particular Greek island that happens to be inhabited by a cannibal maniac. They become stranded there and then picked off one by one...
Joe D'amatos gore classic may struggle to get any kind of recognition with todays audiences, especially those pleased by things like "Scream" and its clones. Its main problem is it's quite dull for large parts and there's a long sequence in the dark when you can hardly see anything (the acting and dubbing is also very poor). However, I would still say that this is a fine example of an Italian exploitation flick. After the opening death scenes it's ages before the next action, but then there's no let up as the gore starts to flow. The infamous baby eating scene still has a bit of an impact and there's other carnage too. D'amato even manages to create some effective suspense at the end with the cannibal's face-off with Tisa Farrow. It's almost like a one man zombie film and George Eastman definitely has a presence and looks quite creepy. If you're at all into Italian gore films then this is a must own!
The good extras on this DVD make it even more of a must buy for genre fans.
