Blu-ray Review – Island of Death (1976)

Island of Death, 1976.

Directed by Nico Mastorakis.

Starring Bob Belling, Jane Lyle, Jessica Dublin, Gerard Gonalons and Janice McConnel.

A British couple on a Greek island embark on a perverted killing spree, targeting anybody they think deserves punishing.

A film with not much of a narrative, Island of Death begins with a couple called Christopher (Bob Belling) and Celia (Jane Lyle) having sex in a telephone box while Christopher phones his mother so she can listen to what he’s doing.
