Fantasy Island Clips Tell You the Rules of That Wild Island – /FILM

Blumhouse went ahead and turnedFantasy Island, the classic TV series, into a horror movie. Why? Because they can. And it might turn out to be pretty good! The footage released so far looks fun, in a silly sort of way, and theres nothing wrong with that. Three newFantasy Island clips showcase how the island turns your deepest fantasy into a potential nightmare.

Ill confess that I thinkFantasy Island looks promising about as promising as any potentialFantasy Island movie can be. That said, the way Blumhouse and Sony are handling it gives me pause.Fantasy Island is not screening for critics, and honestly, thats not that surprising. It happens a lot with genre films like this. Whatis surprising, though, is that there are no Thursday night screenings of the film. Pretty muchevery movie gets an advance Thursday night screening at this point. But notFantasy Island. That suggests the studio really,really doesnt want any advance word about the film to get out. Fingers crossed that isnt a sign of something bad to come.

In the first clip, Michael Peas Mr. Roarke lays out the rules of his magical, fantastical, potentially deadly island. There are only two rules, really. One is that theres only one fantasy per guest. The second is that all guests must see all fantasies through until their natural conclusion,no matter what. The no matter what part is probably a giveaway that something bad is afoot.

The second part is all about an elevator. Sounds harmless, right?Wrong. The elevator takes you to a dark and scary basement, which is never a good sign.

This final clip has characters wonderinghow all the magical fantasies on Fantasy Island come to pass. Needless to say, theres no clear answer. Youll have to wait until the movie comes out to learn that one.

Fantasy Island opens February 14.

The enigmatic Mr. Roarke (Michael Pea) makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort. But when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the islands mystery in order to escape with their lives.
