Rating 3.0 Fog Island Movie Lover: from clamart, Hauts-de-Seine FR -- May, 8, 2004

Nice oldie, definitely inspired by "Ten Little Indians" (as is "Murder By Invitation"). My one complaint is that the print is very splicy. Wish that Alpha could find a better print and get it on DVD for us!


Rating 4.0 The Doctors Moriarty: Zucco vs. Atwill! Movie Lover: from Trumbull, CT US -- April, 22, 2004

Two of the most employed screen meanies from the '30s share the subdued lighting in this PRC film of deceit and revenge. Although slowly paced (typical of the genre of that time)it's fun to watch events unfold. A bunch of less sympathetic characters you'll not often meet! Perhaps 4 Stars is a bit generous, but you will see for yourself that, with a more aggressive director, the film could have been a real classic. This is a favorite that I first saw on Saturday night's "Chiller Theatre" many years ago. The ultimate plot resolution never ceases to satisfy! Turn down the lights (just like PRC did when they filmed it) and enjoy!


Rating 4.0 Good transfer of an interesting PRC title Movie Lover: from Grand Rapids, MI US -- April, 13, 2003

Fog Island is a fair to middlin' PRC production, notable for its interesting cast more than for the story, which is borrowed from And Then There Were None/10 Little Indians. Alpha's preprint appears to have been a worn and splicey 16mm print. They cleaned off the surface dirt before digitizing it - and the results are quite good. Good sharp image and although the sound lacks crispness, the dialogue is clearly understandable with the splices other occasionally bothersome. The viewer can discern what is going on in the dark scenes in all but a few moments. And PRC films were typically underlit to hide skimpy budgets and cheap sets, although the master set here looks fully realized. I enjoyed watching this little B movie - thank you Alpha!
