Nothing much is explained about the couple's descent into psychopathology, but that's what makes it frightening and believable for me. You read about people like this all the time.

Serrador's WHO COULD KILL A CHILD? aka ISLAND OF DEATH is a model of menace done subtly and with great skill. Recently (and not so recently), it has been copied by PLAGUE TOWN, THE CHILDREN, and CHILDREN OF THE CORN. The ending is very NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.

Both films are good for a double bill with well chosen "friends".

Mastorakis is interviewed on the Image DVD.
And rewatching the movie again, i notice those hippies who wander around the island, act like jerks and try to rape the girl..., nasty scene in the bath..., anyone can spot those actor or can identify them?; did they appear in more movies?

As about Mastorakis' film an alternative title is ISLAND OF PERVERSION. In fact Mykonos was really an island of crazy life of high society, nudist beaches, many gay bars, travesties and homosexuals who don't be affraid to kiss each other in public. In the glory days a lot of happenings and crazy parties took place! (Now things are not really the same and Mykonos has lost a lot of that "shine" - but still a lovely place )

So I think Mastorakis wanted to do a sick film with everything included - perversion & murders - and chose this island because of its fame...

I agree, a very well-made sick flick indeed! By the way the couple in the film are brother & sister and this make the situation more bizarre.

I saw a Mastorakis' interview on Greek TV (part of a long documentary about his film career) and he said that he tried to put "everything" into this film but he would never try this thing again - it was clear that he tried to avoid a lot of talks about it...

The most sick scenes are the rape of the lamb and the piss on Jessica Dublin's face!
what do u mean militos he tried to put everything into the film.
do u mean he wanted to put more scenes in but he did not mate.

has mykonos being badly affected because island of death was shot there.
WHEN THERE IS NO MORE ROOM IN HELL THE DEAD WILL WALK THE EARTH.

So, if they are not the same actor, Bob Behling ended his career in some point at late or mid seventies..., but, i hope some forum member give me his opinion...,

A return??

Writer/Director Nico Mastorakis, walks the Mykonos locations where he shot his cult classic ISLAND OF DEATH forty years ago. And almost nothing has changed...
