Amityville Island is as high concept as it is low-budget, and therein lies the charm… like the entirety of Mark’s extensive oeuvre. In this flick we get elements of the women in prison, nature run amok, and possession genres all mixed up and spat back out as a heady concoction that is as delicious as it is bad for you…” Horror Fuel

“The acting is horrible. To be fair, some of it’s because of the miserably cartoonish dialogue, buuuuut there’s a very apparent lack of timing here. No one knows how to time their reactions, so every scene contains delayed emotional expressions […] At least it’s in the so-bad-it’s-funny area of bad horror, but it’s still awful. Just absolutely awful.” Horror Reviews by The Collective


“Obviously shot by the shore of a lake, not an ocean where you might actually find a shark, with mismatched stock footage of the ocean spliced in, Amityville Island is a train wreck. With its ridiculous plot and dialogue, it has to be a failed attempt at ironic humour.” Voices from the Balcony


Amityville Island was released on DVD by Wild Eye Releasing, with an audio commentary track and trailers, on March 17, 2020. Order from
