With the second Pirates movie coming out, The Asylum tried their usual confusion tactics by releasing Pirates of Treasure Island, with Lance Henriksen taking on the iconic role of Long John Silver. It’s about as awful as you think it is.
Thanks to a Mayan curse, Alma and her medicine man boyfriend Brujo must make a desperate trek to Los Angeles so that Brujo’s uncle can lift the curse and stop Alma’s body from destroying itself with snakes. If that sounds way too convoluted for a Snakes on Plane rip-off, you are right.
Emphasis on the “Lost” part of the title, Bruce Boxleitner and a group of plane crash survivors must find a way to escape a mysterious land inhabited by giant spiders, Abercrombie & Fitch tribesmen and a strung out King Kong knock off in King of the Lost World.
