Hell Island

[a.k.a. Slaughterhouse Rock]
Dir: Dimitri Logothetis
Star: Nicholas Celozzi, Tom Reilly, Donna Denton, Hope Marie Carlton

[8] Low-grade, low-budget, mutilate-the-teenagers movie, possessing some charm, a few messy effects and an irreverent atmosphere. For reasons too complex to explain, a group of kids end up on Alcatraz getting offed by the spirit of a cannibal who has possessed one of their number. Toni Basil plays a dead rock star, Devo provide the music, the teenagers bicker realistically and the BBFC take out 1 min 14 secs. Nothing spectacularly new, but pretty good for the genre.


Rock 'n' roll
