Review: Fantasy Island is a muddled mishmash of tired tropes, dull twists (ars technica)

Sony’s reboot of Fantasy Island plays up the horror. Five guests at a remote vacation resort find their fantasies are turning into nightmares in Sony Pictures' big-screen reboot of Fantasy Island, based on the popular TV series of the same name that ran from 1977-1984. This 21st-century update plays up the horror aspects and has been touted as a cross between Westworld and The Cabin in the Woods—perhaps with a little bit of Lost thrown in for good measure. Unfortunately, the film fails to captu...

‘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...

Kinetic Directing Failed to Improve 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance'

None Why make a sequel to Ghost Rider (Johnston, 2007)? The property had only been fitfully popular over its nearly 40-year history, and never had same the staying power as most of Marvel's stable of characters. The first film, starring Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, was moderately successful, but was not particularly well-liked by critics or audiences. Since its release, the fifth ongoing Ghost Rider series was cancelled with Ghost Rider Vol. 5 #35 (July 2009) due to low sales. Sur...
