Storyline

The Camp on Blood Island  Deep in Malaya, as World War II is rapidly coming to an end, men, women and children, trapped by the Japanese invasion, are held captive in the Blood Island prison camp. Knowing that Yamamitsu, the sadistic commandant, will murder them all when he learns of his country’s defeat, Dutch, a Dutch planter, smashes the camp radio. British officer Lambert and, in the women’s prison, the recently-widowed Kate, join Dutch in arming the prisoners.

The Camp on Blood Island.

Excellent war movie.Is this film available on video/DVD? Again it is one of those films that appears to have disappeared Into cinema history. Being made in black and white seems to give the film more authenticity. Carl Mohner is excellent as the leader of the prisoners.It is difficult to say anything negative about this movie. The plot is straightforward,but riveting.The Japanese do not know the war is over.The prisoners have found out and are fearful of what will happen to them once the sadistic camp commander acquires this knowledge. The allies are getting closer and the tension mounts.Don’t miss this one if it comes to the small screen.Althougth perhaps not in the same league has “the Bridge over the River Kawi” or “The Great Escape” it is still nevertheless an excellent P.O.W. movie in its own right.So why isn’t it on DVD?

War is real horror

 

I saw this movie when I was fairly young and the scenes never left my memory. I could not get over the way the actors looked as if they had just been rescued from real Japanese POW camps. How could they get actors so skinny to play the parts? I thought they were real prisoners.

Although shot in black and white the realism is terrifying and not for the faint hearted.

It was so intense it’s no wonder the politically correct brigade buried it but it was a true story and true to life in it’s portrayal.

I doubt it could be remade as good but it would be good if they could. One of the most moving movies I have ever seen. Can anyone get me a copy?
