There is probably no better way to spend Valentine’s Day than with someone close to your heart enjoying a horror-themed version of a classic television show from the seventies. If you’re just joining us about this particular topic, there is brand-new version of “Fantasy Island” done by Blumhouse and released via Sony Pictures.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already mentioned liking the trailers for this but based on the heavy itinerary that I have coming up in the next few days there is no way that I can get to this one in the early days of its run. Probably going to need to wait until its on the streaming services or the pay channels. It’s an interesting take on the classic show and as I close this item up I wonder who among the readership is considering seeing it early on. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
