Synopsis:
It's 1846 and three sailors, Oliver (Alex Hassell), Jim (Graham Butler) and Cailean (Fisayo Akinade) are the only survivors of a terrible shipwreck. On their leaky lifeboat they make it to a mysterious island off the Scottish coast. Here they meet the four sole inhabitants, Douglas (Conleth Hill), his niece Lanthe (Tori Butler-Hart), the harbour man Fingal (Dickon Tyrell) and his daughter Korrigan (Alex Wilton Regan). They clearly have a terrible secret that they're hiding and when fully recovered the sailors are desperate to leave and return to the mainland, but the promised boat never appears. Oliver starts to investigate and unearths a myth of a ghostly siren that haunts the island.

Seen it all before - The Isle review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
04/08/2019

Ghostly 19th century shenanigans on a Scottish island. Generic, clichéd nonsense. Hasn’t this been done a hundred times before? Watch the trailer and laugh.

The time you lose watching this will haunt you - The Isle review by JH

Spoiler Alert
18/12/2019

Predictable, cliched; performances that are sometimes fine, sometimes cringe-inducing; snails-pace plot (not that there is a plot), devoid of any tension or atmosphere, unintentionally funny. Occasionally some spooky fog threatens to obscure the image, but unfortunately it never quite does. Clearly lots of work went into realising this dream so it's a shame that there doesn't seem to have been a discerning eye overseeing it. Imagine your local amateur dramatic society performing a one paragraph ghost story for 90 uneventful minutes. That's what watching this is like.

Amatuer hour - The Isle review by MA

Spoiler Alert
11/02/2020

Very poor storyline, cast wooden and some of the effects looked as if the had been done by children learning to make things.

Obviously done on a shoestring budget that did not stretch far
