Episode Info:

Vacation Month continues with a trip to beautiful - and exceedingly queer - Mykonos and Nico Mastorakis' notorious exploitation/video nasty film, Island of Death. This is the Stefon of horror films because it has EVERYTHING: bestiality, incest, targeted homophobic violence, misogyny, rape and so much more (please pay attention to the content warning!)

After the film's lengthy production history and categorization in the UK's notorious list of video nasties (thanks for the background info, Anya Stanley!), we compare our readings of the film. Trace says it's merely shock value while Joe argues it's a comedy about religious hypocrisy (Mastorakis himself would say it's nothing more than an opportunity to make money!)

Plus: comparisons to Silent Night, Deadly Night 2, Haneke, and Last House on the Left; Trace's forgetful history with onscreen bestiality; and logistical advice for water sports. Finally, we make a special request for Greek listeners: is your name Nico and did you work on this film?
