Trailer from Hell: Horror Island

Okay - so I'm really linkslutting today, but there's a reason. This is a B-Movie from the old studio system and it reflects the attitude of the time. That is:

"We have a release slot we have to fill with a thriller picture, we have the sets, the actors are on contract - so let's make a movie called HORROR ISLAND. Somebody call up the script department and get them working. We shoot on Tuesday."
While Horror Island won't be on anyone's must-see or Academy Award nominations lists it does have a lot going for it - nice cinematography, competent direction, a good-looking cast, and a lightweight story designed to entertain for 90 minutes.

Enjoy!
