"Fantasy Island" was the name of a TV series that hit the airwaves from 1977 to 1984. The series starred Ricardo Montalbon as "Mr. Roarke". This was a very safe , almost predictable show.
Well in 2020 Blumhouse, the production company that brought some fun movies as "The Purge" and "Get Out" now has invaded "Fantasy Island".
Now in this version people were invited to the island to act our their fantasies of revenge. It was really creepy. One set of guys had an orgy and then had to deal with insane villians. Another woman took revenge on a bully from highshool. One man fulfilled his dream of serving in the army. One story featured a woman who reworked her decision to accept an ex beau's proposal.
Each one of these stories had some interesting options that were entertaining but not incredibly original.
The movie stars Michael Pena as "Mr. Roarke". He actually did a good job with the role. This role was a change from the normal roles he plays. The movie also features Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, z and Austin Stowell, who previously has been seen in "Bridge of Spies" and "Whiplash".
The movie is an interesting horror film. Not really great but entertaining. If you like scary and sometimes sick situations. Check it out.
