Description by OLDIES.com:

Near the end of World War II, Allied soldiers are held prisoner in a Japanese camp on Blood Island. When Colonel Lambert (Andre Morell, The Bridge on the River Kwai) finds out that the Allies are about to win the war, he knows that the Japanese will kill all of the prisoners in their camp and the women's camp on the other side of the island. It is up to Lambert and his cohorts to keep the Japanese officers from finding out about the Allies, while arming the prisoners in case the guards learn the truth. Based on a true story, THE CAMP ON BLOOD ISLAND is a compelling tale about the savagery of war. Newly remastered.

Product Description:

For some reason, this Hammer Studios war melodrama was singled out for constant ridicule by the Monty Python troupe. The story is set at a brutal Japanese POW camp, where sadism is a way of life (the first scene is of a hapless prisoner being forced to dig his own grave). The evil commandant (played by non-Japanese Ronald Radd) has sworn to wipe out all the inmates if Japan loses the war. The English prisoners know that this has already happened, thus they're forced to keep the news secret from their captors-at least until they can stage a daring escape. The portrayal of the Japanese race in CAMP ON BLOOD ISLAND is hardly conducive to the cause of political correctness.
