Fantasy Island Reviews
December 30, 2020
A bloated, convoluted and (most egregiously) boring mess.
October 20, 2020
Comatose direction by Jeff Wadlow turns the comedy leaden, the horror perfunctory and the twists stupefying.

Some of the writing is really cheesy and just a bit too much.

Look, this remake of the '70s TV show about - you guessed it - a Fantasy Island, where your dreams come back to haunt you, is horrible.
