The two new The Invisible Man clips show Moss’ character attempting an escape, and finding later on that there’s no real escap...

‘Fantasy Island’ Review: Stay Far, Far Away From Blumhouse’s Horror Getaway

Fantasy Island, the late ’70s/early ’80s TV series that made the catchphrase “The plane! The plane!” wildly popular, heads to the big screen thanks to the fright masters at Blumhouse. As is their want, Blumhouse has warped the show into a horror movie – a move that’s not entirely unprecedented. The original show had plenty of supernatural elements – there was even an episode featuring the Devil. And the old adage of “be careful what you wish for” has been exploited time and time again for scary...

'Fantasy Island' reboot is not a trip worth taking
