Plot Summary:
"Five shipwrecked English teenagers take refuge in an island hotel that is decorated for New Years. The problem is, it's early summer, and soon enough, even the walls themselves are striking out against them."

Bloody awful may be a more suitable title for this British trash!!

A group of friends rescue an American girl from a gang of pervy carny workers and take a boat out to a remote island to escape them (What's wrong with the local police station?).

Once there they take shelter in a hotel, which oddly for the middle of July, is decorated for the New Year. Things get weirder when all of the clothes and decorations appear to be from the 's.

Fun and games ensue as the teens are turned into zombie like creatures, until only two of them are left! Will they escape and do you care? I didn't!!

This actually turned out to be very different to what I had expected and in the end it's just a cheap rip-off of Peter Jackson's 'Bad Taste'. Apparently a pilot carrying a plague, crash landed on the island just as the islanders were celebrating New Year , and everyone on the island has been trapped there since.

This film is one of the worst I have ever seen, with absolutely nothing to keep the viewer interested at all.

Surprisingly, at least two of the cast have gone on to have great careers in UK soaps such as 'Casualty', 'Emmerdale' and 'Hollyoaks'.

OVERALL SUMMARY
This film is absolutely boring!!
