For those of us of a certain age – Fantasy Island was a staple of our weekly TV viewing. Just like Wonderful World Of Disney, Happy Days, and Welcome Back, Kotter – the week was just not on track if you didn’t hear Tatoo proclaim – “Da Plane, Da Plane!”
Although sometimes the show ventured into some slightly darker material – for the most part, it was pretty light fare. For this modern retelling, Blumhouse has decided to go full-on horror – and we’ve got the trailer to give you an idea of how that may have gone.
From the press release:
In Blumhouse’s new spin on Fantasy Island, the enigmatic Mr. Roarke 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 island’s mystery in order to escape with their lives.
