Is it paradise—or a deadly trap—on the Mysterious Island of Beautiful Women, a.k.a Island of Sister Theresa. An all-male crew makes an emergency landing on an uncharted island and finds itself at the mercy of fierce women who will defend their homes (and their shrine to the mystical “Sister”) to the death. Meanwhile, both sexes are menaced by the malicious warriors known as the “Headchoppers.” Written by Gary Sherman (Death Line) and Sandor Stern (The Amityville Horror), this savagely entertaining made-for-TV adventure was the final film from acclaimed director Joseph Pevney (Female on the Beach). The wonderful, sun-soaked cast includes Steven Keats (Death Wish), Jaime Lyn Bauer (Young Doctors in Love), Jayne Kennedy (Body and Soul), Rosalind Chao (The Joy Luck Club), Deborah Shelton (Body Double), Peter Lawford (Salt and Pepper) and screen and television legend Clint Walker (Killdozer).
