|The strangest thing to come out of Greece since Irene Pappas released a bouzouki singalong album. (Kidding).
An already-unstable couple (Behling, Ryall) visit the sensual Greek island of Mykonos on vacation and submit fully to murder, depravity and savagery of all kinds. Woohoo!
A crude crucifixicion, sword-slashing and a burning-by-aerosol-can & lighter are all highlights.
Believe it or not, this sleazy epic *can* be seen as a character study of two amoral voids (think Albert Camus' novel The Stranger)...
Or you *could* just sit back and enjoy the "human copulation with a goat" scene!
Considering the grimy nature of the premise, director Mastorakis does an admirable job of walking a delicate line between displaying our protagonists' horrible actions & degrading journey, but not asking us to sympathize with them. It's all beautifully shot.
Also known as Ta Pedhia tou dhiavolou as well as A Craving for Lust.
Not to be confused with the Spanish horror flick Who Can Kill a Child? (1976), which also sometimes goes by the title Island of Death.
