Movie Info

In this high-seas adventure, a wicked one-eyed, one-armed pirate forces a young man, who was wrongfully imprisoned, to take him and his band to his Caribbean island home where the pirate believes great treasure is buried. Once there, the pirate begins fighting for control of the island and begins slaughtering the lad's family and friends. The young man is utterly appalled and with his step-sister, a young woman and her beloved, somehow escape. Later the pirate discovers a large statue of pure gold. He and his men haul it to the beach and put it on a raft. As they are floating toward their ship, they are ambushed by the man and the other survivors causing the precious statue to fall overboard and sink to Davy Jones' locker while the pirate is killed. Later the survivors return to their ravaged home. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Pirates of Blood River

Set on an island populated with Huguenot colonists in which Puritan oppression reigns supreme, Pirates of Blood River is a fun pirate romp that fulfills all of your basic needs from a pirate movie while it simultaneously indicting religious fundamentalism and theocracy. Of course, this criticism is about as deep as a puddle, but the film is still an entertaining adventure jaunt from Hammer Studios that features the always awesome Christopher Lee and Oliver Reed.
