Questions beget more questions, which leads to a plot ridden with absolute inanity.

A decision by filmmakers to fully turn the Fantasy Island concept into a half-cocked horror movie buys the entire doomed enterprise a one-way ticket to the bottom of the barrel.
February 20, 2020
The original show is such a simple, robust conceit that there was plenty of space and opportunity to do a contemporary reboot, but this Fantasy Island is no narrative dream destination.
February 20, 2020
Ultimately, Fantasy Island suffers because it utterly fails to follow through on its promise...if this is the best you can do in terms of your fantasies, you are sadly lacking in imagination.
February 20, 2020
Equal parts poorly acted, poorly directed, and poorly written, the film's bloodless PG-13 rating hinders its potential even further. This is a really bad movie.
February 19, 2020
It wanders in all directions, it takes a great deal of desperate writing to twist around and explain who's the actual bad guy, and the production design and costuming is disappointing.

[T]his supernatural horror flick is an unnecessary, bewildering overhaul.

The final third is a massive disaster that's bewildering in its narrative ineptitude.

Tried to make a horror movie out of the old TV show but only ended up making a horror-ble movie. Ricardo Montalban is not amused.

Fantasy Island is ridiculous and trashy to the point that it feels like a soap opera. This is the type of PG-13 horror film that gives the genre a bad name and turns horror fans away from the theater. Blumhouse is certainly better than this.

Maybe Blumhouse should have invited some guests (and some screenwriters) to the island that have more inventiveness than a reality show contestant. [Full review in Spanish]

You can see every scare coming from a mile away.

I was kind of impressed that they were all making a legit attempt at making a Fantasy Island movie, until it became an overblown, very convoluted slasher flick, and then I got bored.

While the characters can be interesting representations of the ideas the film wants to explore, by the end they get stuck in action scenes that feel recycled from countless other low grade thrillers.
February 18, 2020
By the time this "Fantasy Island" arrives at its gallingly stupid final twist, you'll be dying to go home.
February 18, 2020
If only "Fantasy Island" were to convey real suspense, actual thrills or shocking horror. Instead it plods along, an academic exercise in connecting dots, imagining backstories and offering greeting card bromides.

'This place doesn't suck,' someone observes early on. If only.
February 17, 2020
Picturesque scenery doesn't compensate for mediocre performances and a lazy, asinine and increasingly preposterous screenplay that drains all of the fun, suspense, fun, humor and thrills from the film.
February 17, 2020
Whatever you do, don't get marooned on this dull "Fantasy Island."
February 17, 2020
A mess of a genre picture that is easily one of the most tonally confused movies I've seen in years.
