‘Awaken the evil’

Red Island is a 2018 Canadian horror feature film written, photographed, co-produced and directed by Lux (cinematographer on The Woods, 2013). The movie stars Alex Essoe, Georgie Daburas and Tawny West.


In an effort to repair a stale relationship, John (Alex Essoe) accompanies his archaeologist girlfriend, Amy (Tawny West) to a remote island to locate ancient indigenous Americans’ artefacts.

They discover extremely old cave markings along with a long lost believed to be sacred mask; when it disappears, strange occurrences happen which unleashes a mythological creature that hunts them down as they try to escape and get off the island…


“There’s one scene that should be a mix of arousing and disturbing, but it’s shot so badly it falls flat. By the time the last half hour rolls around and we get more than just loads of talk it’s too late. Not that a lot happens, but we do at least get to see the creature for a couple of minutes.” Voices from the Balcony
