Welcome To The Best 'Fantasy Island' Quotes

Are you a fan of Blumhouse movies? If the answer is yes, we want you to vote for the best Fantasy Island quotes. The company behind such horror hits as Paranormal Activity, Get Out, and Happy Death Day has done something very unusual: they've taken the classic '70s TV show and transformed it into a horror flick. The series, which starred Ricardo Montalban and Hervé Villechaize, ran on ABC from 1977 to 1984. It was often dramatic, sometimes comedic. This horror adaptation, on the other hand, is all about the scares, although there are some funny lines tossed in to lighten the mood.

Michael Pena takes over the role of Mr. Roarke, the "host" of the island. He welcomes a group of individuals, all of whom have some kind of fantasy they want to pursue. Lucy Hale plays Melanie, a young woman who wants to get revenge on an old nemesis. Maggie Q, meanwhile, is Gwen. She comes hoping to accept a marriage proposal that she declined several years before. They're just two of the people who eventually come to realize that the way the island grants their fantasies is not as harmless and fun as they expected. In fact, something very sinister is taking place -- and we're not just talking about the fact that famous character Tattoo has been left out of the movie. 

Fantasy Island was directed by Jeff Wadlow, who previously made Blumhouse's Truth or Dare. He co-wrote the screenplay with Jillian Jacobs and Christopher Roach.

Vote up the most memorable Fantasy Island quotes, regardless of which character speaks them.

    Horror Movies And Roller Coasters

    Melanie: Obviously, the fantasy won't be real, but that's why we go to horror movies and ride roller coasters, right? To feel something?
