Reinventing the beloved TV show as a standard horror movie was a risky decision, and while it worked on a commercial level, from a creative standpoint Fantasy Island was far from a success.

Blumhouse can churn these sort of genre efforts out in their sleep, which is probably what happened based on how flimsy the plotting is and how telegraphed all of the scares are.

Michael Pena is as watchable as ever, but the whole thing is so contrived that it fails as a homage to the series, a horror movie and what was clearly designed as the first film in a franchise.
