Sony can’t get over their fetishization of nostalgia. First there was Charlie’s Angels–which according to the media isn’t doing all that well–now there’s Fantasy Island, which if this trailer is any indicator, looks really, really interesting.
It–as in the trailer–plays like a horror movie (being produced via Blumhouse doesn’t hurt that association) and it looks at points oddly like Escape Room, which was also released by Sony.
I have no idea if this movie is going to be good, but I have to admit that, unlike with Charlie’s Angels, I actually want to see it.
Take that how you will.
