Welcome to The Island.




Where your worst fears are about to come true...



It was supposed to be the perfect holiday: a week-long trip for six teenage friends on a remote tropical island.


But when their guide dies of a stroke leaving them stranded, the trip of a lifetime turns into a nightmare.


Because someone on the island knows each of the group's worst fears. And one by one, they're becoming a reality.



Seven days in paradise. A deadly secret.




Who will make it off the island alive?
