If crimes against cinema merited prosecution, Blumhouse's Fantasy Island would go directly to death row. The only scary thing about this wussified, fright-free horrorshow is that it wants to spawn sequels. Stop it before it kills again.

[A]lthough by the end, as certain characters are brought back to life and others are turned into "black-eyed zombies," audiences will most likely be wishing they'd bought a ticket to another movie.

Just wretchedly unenjoyable.

If this were the feature-length pilot episode for some cheap reboot on a streaming service - which is what it feels like - a generous viewer might half-heartedly agree to tune in next week and see if things get more interesting.

The movie can only be classified as something truly terrible, escaping any other categorisation that would make it resemble an actual film.

As in Truth or Dare, there’s a degree of strain and tedium in the effort to convince us the story ultimately makes sense.
