204 DEVIL IS ON THE ISLAND (1986) Francis Leroi horror

Director Francis Leroi's only Horror Film is Must-See Entertainment

Original French Title: LE DEMON DANS L'ILE [The Devil is on the Island]

director: Francis Leroi
starring: Anny Duperey Jean-Claude Brialy Pierre Santini Gabriel Cattand Catherine Alcover

Anny Duperey plays Gabrielle Martin, a young female doctor who has taken a job on a remote island to escape her painful past. Once there, she watches as a rash of strange accidents begin to injure the townsfolk. Dr Gabrielle soon realizes that household appliances have become deadly, wounding and - in some cases - killing people. It seems every day some new disaster has occurred caused by an oven, boiler pot, razor blade, microwave, electric knife or fuel can (even a wind-up teddybear pokes out a girl's eye). Her investigations seem to implicate - somehow - another [mysterious] doctor on the island...

This was director Leroi's first mainstream motion picture after a decade of shooting hardcore (XXX). Between 1973-1983 be made 25+ adult films, sometimes under his real name, but often behind one of his pseudonyms: Jim Clack or John W Dark. Significantly, this movie established him firmly in the genre market as it won numerous prestigious awards including Best Picture at both the Avoriaz Fantastic Film Festival (1983) and the Fantasporto (1984). But rather than pursuing his new fame, filmmaker Francis Leroi returned to erotica - softcore, this time - and signed on as the director for producer Alain Sirtsky's upcoming Emmanuelle films [Emmanuelle 4 (1985) and Emmanuelle 6 (1993)] and the related Emmanuelle made-for-TV movies (delivering 7 films in 1987). Mr Leroi died from cancer in March 2002 at age 59.
