Fantasy Island was a popular TV show that ran for seven seasons in the late '70s and early '80s. Using the anthology format of two stories per episode, the show's premise saw guests arrive at an island where their fantasies were purported to be granted. Things usually took a twist however.

Blumhouse bring Fantasy Island to the big screen next year, amping up the horror aspect of the original series with a group of guests battling for their lives as they attempt to escape the island.
