Description
Cast: Ena Hartman, Marta Kristen, Tom Selleck On a co-ed island serving as a prison for convicts with life sentences, Carmen (Hartman) finds herself in the middle of two warring factions of inmates. Terminal Island touches every seventies exploitation base from female nudity to killer bees as it heads towards its surprisingly non-apocalyptic gunfight/molotov cocktail finale. Through all the ultra-low-budget camp mayhem, Rothman displays her signature light touch and equal opportunity ethos.
