Arrow Video's Cruel Destination: ISLAND OF DEATH

Arrow Video has brought another Video Nasty back into print with their special edition DVD of Niko Mastorakis' ISLAND OF DEATH.  Bob Belling (THE DEVIL'S MEN/LAND OF THE MINOTAUR) and Jane Ryall play a pair of incestuous siblings screwing and slashing their way through the various "perverts" on the island of Mykonos while on the run from the law.  Mastorakis said that he conceived the film by first writing a list of every gruesome death he could think of one day, writing down a list of every twisted sex act he could think of the next day, writing the script on the weekend, and then seeking out strangers on the street in Athens (if they spoke English, he cast them int he movie).  Mastorakis remastered ISLAND OF DEATH in 2002 and produced some extras for DVD licensing, but Arrow have produced some brand new extras of their own to accompany them.
