"Island of the Bloody Plantation" is set on a small, unnamed island (probably somewhere in the Philippines), where a Nazi-like dictator runs a prison-like plantation: the local girls work all day as slaves, supervised (and often sexually attacked) by a few (fairly inept) white guards, some local guys and a couple of midgets (!). One of the guards, played by Udo Kier, falls in love with one of the girls and decides to help all of them escape from the island.

I was rather surprised to find this movie on DVD. Presented in a startlingly clear print, it looks beautifully shot, with an often stunning cinematography. This beauty clashes, however, with the dubbing and the low-grade material. The story is simple and unexciting, and frequently ceases to make sense! An example: at one point, one of the girls helps Kier and his girlfriend with the use of some magical powers. Why couldn't she have used them earlier? Why doesn't she use them again? At the end (SPOILERS FOLLOW) the girls escape in what must be one of the easiest escapes ever in the history of WIP movies. Udo Kier takes the film seriously and tries to act, but he is hampered (in the Eglish-language print) by being dubbed with a rather girlish voice. (**)
