In Antonello Giallo's follow up to the notorious Pleasures of the Damned, private investigator Jack Steele is hired by a mysterious treasure hunter to help find the lost treasure of Marco Polo. Along for the trip is Jack's adopted son, Billy. Their search brings them to an island off the coast of Argentina... and into the clutches of a primitive cannibal tribe, the Yamma Yamma. Alexis Kinkaid, a mysterious recluse who has made his home on the island amongst the cannibals, may hold the key to unlocking the island's secret... if they don't end up in the belly of a savage first! Isle of the Damned, originally released in Italy in 1980, brought Giallo under fire yet again by the Italian government, who were outraged by the shocking and real scenes of primitive tribal rituals and cannibalism portrayed in the film. The film has been long out of print, but is presented here in a digitally remastered form.

It deserved to be seen on the big screen.It's also always strange, fun, to see we saw some actors way before we thought we discovered them.In this case, I'm saying this about Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, that I really discovered with his Mr. Eko's role in Lost, when I in fact saw him before in this film, Legionnaire, and in:CongoAce Ventura: When Nature CallsThe Mummy ReturnsThe Bourne Identity& Unstoppable

No offence. For any father with daughters (even one), who wouldn't want a beautiful relationship like Bill has with Susan, his youngest.A moving story, beautifully told by Director Martin Brest and superbly acted by Hopkins, Pitt and Forlani.I am moved to tears by Parrish's huge character every time we watch it.
