Here are 5 reasons why you should watch Bermuda Island:
5) Sarah French!
Audiences will be wowed by Sarah French’s performance as Carolyn. It’s very rare to find a performer of her caliber who has chemistry with all her scene partners. French is in on the joke, demonstrates her vulnerable side during the romantic scenes, and pulls off the scares during the frightening sequences. She expresses so much anxiety when Carolyn swims through a sea of dead bodies.
4) Noel Gugliemi!
The first act really works because Noel Gugliemi steals the show as Diego Montalban. Gugliemi embodies his persona with such full-blown bravado and cockiness. Audiences will be rooting for the bad guy as soon as he steps onto the screen.
3) The Camerawork!
The cinematography by Michael Su captures a claustrophobic vibe when the ensemble cast enters the airplane. Su keeps with the confined atmosphere when the characters crash-land onto the island. Interestingly, the camerawork closes in on the character, visually reminding audiences this is a prison for them.
2) The Direction!
With the story by Sonny and Michael Mahal, screenwriter Robert Thompson manages to keep audiences surprised by switching genres. The first act is a fun-filled homage to the ‘70s disaster movies as the second act dives into survival movie territory. Leading up to the suspenseful standoff in the climax, director Adam Werth highlights what each scene pays tribute to while adding a dash of cheeky humor and erotic romanticism.
1) Engaging Homage!
Bermuda Island is a solid survival thriller that also works as an engaging homage to the disaster movies of the ‘70s.
Bermuda Island arrives January 20th, 2023 on VOD/Bluray/DVD.
