New on Netflix This horror adventure from the «Halloween» makers is based on a cult series – cinema news – FILMSTARTS.de

Even if Blumhouse is known for critical hits and cinema successes such as «Get Out», «The Purge» or «Halloween», one must not forget that the production company specializing in the horror genre also releases a lot of average goods, some of which not even making waves in the direct-to-DVD market. Although » Fantasy Island «, which is now available with a Netflix subscription, has made it to the big screen, the mystery adventure is one of the studio’s failures.

With the answer to the question of how the new edition, after which nobody asked after two failed TV reboots, should now become a horror flick, those responsible for «Fantasy Island» also seem to be overwhelmed.

In the official FILMSTARTS review, «Fantasy Island» only gets 2 out of a possible 5 stars. The horror adventure is described by our author Madeleine Eger as «off-the-shelf horror» . As a homage to the original series and due to some crazy ideas and the funny high-gloss (cheap) look, the film can «at least [develop] a significant potential for guilty pleasure».

But the vacation on Fantasy Island turns into a horror trip and the supposed paradise into a death trap when a series of murders shakes the island.
