      Emoji M This movie is already dead. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Audience Member get this awful movie to 0 Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This has nothing to do with zombies but evil flies that terrorize a greedy businessman a cop and a convict all staying on this island for different reasons...Insepid comes to mind. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Freakin ridiculous! If anyone owns a copy of this, take it and burn it. Wait, first spit on it then burn it. I borrowed this copy and will strongly advise the owners to dispose of this in the proper manner. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member For starters, if you are expecting a zombie film, then you will be totally disappointed as I was. Island of the Dead features a somewhat promising premise about the desolate island where unclaimed bodies from NYC are buried. Somehow, the the film got Mos Def to not only act in but also offer music for the film. Plus, Malcolm McDowell's in it.....Ultimately, the film never quite makes sense as it opens like a television series about missing persons, becomes a film about corporate takeovers of mass graveyards, and then becomes a bizarre kind of creature-feature in which mutant flies turn people into the lamest zombies ever. A real piece of crap from beginning to end, Island of the Dead thinks it is way cooler and artistic than it is..... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member only received half star cuz mos def was in it, but this is a pointless movie devoid of scares.
