Click to View Larger...Our Favorite Movie Posters #92: Terminal Island (1973) - In the wake of a Supreme Court decision to outlaw the death penalty, California passes an initiative that designates San Bruno island as a dumping spot for first-degree murder convicts, free to do what they like except leave.

The main camp of convicts is controlled by the tyrannical Bobby, who rules with an iron hand, and the women are used as sex slaves. A.J. and a group of more free-minded murderers have escaped and gone into hiding. When A.J. and his men liberate the women from Bobby's custody, tensions mount to an all-out confrontation for control of the island.

Terminal Island is a 1973 American film directed by Stephanie Rothman. It features an early screen performance by Tom Selleck. Although an exploitation film, it has been the treatment of much serious discussion by critics and academics over the years.

Rothman later said that that she was asked to have a rape scene in the film but could not bring herself to shoot it. "I would not want to be responsible in any way for showing how it could be done," said Rothman.

The film was originally more violent but scenes had to be cut out. Rothman was uncomfortable with the violence that she did show. "I was unhappy with the movie and still continue to feel so," she said in 1981.

Warning: Trailer NSFW. (Nudity)
