When does dreams become nightmares? On Fantasy Island! Sony Pictures has released the first trailer as things go all out Twilight Zone and go full on horror!!
From the late 1970’s into the mid 1980’s the TV Show was a staple part of TV Viewing. Khan himself Ricardo Montalbán played Mr Roarke alongside his ever faithful servant Tattoo (Hervé Villechaize). Throw in Blumhouse you know the 21st century reboot the classic tropes go out the window.
Fantasy Island was that tropical island resort that gave well to do Americans a chance to live their wildest dreams. Those fantasies always turned into an nightmare delivering a lesson in life for those willing to pay the highest buck. Michael Peña stars as Mr Roarke but it seems he has no servant this time.
Blumhouse are on a roll with upcoming reboots like The Invisible Man, Black Christmas not forgetting Halloween last year. The fear factor has been amped but how dark will they go? Lucy Hale seems to be our lead character whose the first to notice things are not right here.
Blumhouse do look like they are inspired by their own back catalogue to deliver this one…
