‘Fantasy Island’ is a 2020 horror/mystery movie based off of the 70’s show with the same name. Guests come to an island where their biggest fantasy comes true, no matter how impossible it may be. Once the fantasy starts it must play out till the end, no matter how deadly it may be. ‘Fantasy Island’ stars Michael Pena (Jexi, Ant-Man), Maggie Q (Designated Survivor), Lucy Hale (Truth or Dare), Austin Stowell (Catch-22), Portia Doubleday (Carrie), Jimmy Ouyang (Crazy Rich Asians), Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Charlotte McKinney (Baywatch).
‘Fantasy Island’ is produced by Blumhouse, which they’ve put out some pretty good movies in the past such as ‘Get Out’, ‘Glass’, ‘Happy Death Day’, and many others, so I was pretty excited about this one. The reviews on IMDb, and Rotten Tomatoes are pretty low though, so I wasn’t too sure what to expect. ‘Fantasy Island’ surpassed my expectations. I’ve said in other reviews I don’t like to give spoilers, I hate when it happens to me, so I don’t do it. With that said, all I can say it is full of twists. Just when you think you have it figured out, it hits you with another one. It has the same feel as the movie ‘Escape Room’. It even teases at the end that there may be a second one. Honestly it’s a great movie. I give it a 8/10.
