Rated PG-13 for “violence, terror, drug content, suggestive material, and brief strong language” it centers on the enigmatic Mr. Roarke (Peña) who makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort. But when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the island’s mystery in order to escape with their lives.
