"Okay accept the fact that this is an inexpensive made movie. Once over that I liked it. I call it a bit camp. If you are a pirate movie collector, add this to your collection.
Starts out on an island with pirates hiding a treasure. Conspiracy- the pirate's that should come back for them, will not. Soon, something causes the island to shake-rattle and roll. A voice booms forth to say they are all prisoners - lights flash - the Captain's wife disappears.
Back to modern day. Six newly graduated college students, who had been on a cruise and partying, have found themselves beached on the island. The next day one of the girls' is missing. As the group tries to find Sara and unravel the mystery of the island, with pirate ghosts appearing and disappearing, each one gets killed in turn. At the end only Brad and Sara are left. Sara being the rebrith of the dissapeared Captain's wife. A chase pursues, they defeat the Captain, who had been possessed.
Some funny lines, some campiness, some Ed Wood stuff, all in all a cute movie to keep with your Pirate Collection.

"Did anyone catch that last Pirates of the Caribbean Movie. I still haven't checked it out yet. The unfortunate truth is I loved the first one but I really hated the second so I'm hoping that the third makes up for it. I don't know he truth is I liked it better when the bad Pirates all looked like dead ghosts and not like fish people, You see what happens when Disney takes over a project next thing you know you have talking animals and so forth.
Anyway I checked out a recent flick that my good friend Kristin wrote for a small production company that got distribution from Lionsgate that is the exact opposite of the recent series of Johnny Depp pirate adventures...Ok it flat out parodies them. I'm talking about Pirates of Ghost Island
What we have here Kiddies is the story of a group of marooned college graduates that are all trapped on an island that is inhabited by the ghosts of a group of Pirates that are eating anyone that happens to step foot on the island. What is different about this group is the fact that one of the girls is the reincarnation/descendant of the head pirate's wife and h wants her back. think of the Mummy with Pirates.
Now as far as the movie goes I like the story and the script. The dialogue was cheesy and campy but for a film like this it is intended to be. does anyone remember a flick from the 1960s called A monster in the Surf well not really any of you people but the guys that I know will remember it. I feel that this movie was made for the lovers of the cheesy B-Movie Lovers like me that like cheesy dialogue as well as hot girls in Bikinis and low prices sets and stock footage. I feel that Kristin knew what she was writing when she was asked to pen the script. I know that she took allot of heat from some critics but the critics that reviewed her I don't think would know a decent movie if it was right in front of them...That and they just wanted to see [...]. To that I say Get a girlfriend you losers. Or at least a decent girl and not some of those Skanks that you like to keep around
Now the acting was pretty bad but once again I feel that that was the intent. You see kiddies I think that the filmmakers knew that with a movie with the word Pirates in the title they would naturally be compared to that movie based on a theme Park Ride and went the opposite direction and made a campy cheesy 0 budget flick that is good for one thing entertaining you.
Unfortunately films like this are never appreciated Ed Wood Jr is often hailed as the worst filmmaker of all time and his flick Plan 9 from Outer Space has the mention for being seen as the worst movie of all time, I mean come on there are plenty worst than that. Did anyone see Battlefield Earth?...I rest my case.

"This is an amusing, campy pirate film. I think Thomas Stiver should have received a much higher billing in the movie as his is the performance that stands out above the rest. His accent is consistent and authentic, his delivery quite in character and overall performance outshines all others. Mr Stiver's performance shows talent and experience.
Some of the effects were a little cheesey, but overall a great flick to add to your collection."

"Melissa Powell is a stand-out in this otherwise sort of unimpressive but campy pirate flick. Watch it to hear the pirate acccents fade in and out and to see some terribly bad special effects, but also to see a couple up-and-comers in young hollywood."
