Terminal Island: An argument in favor of the death penalty.

"Terminal Island"(1973) is a dreadful exploitation film set in the near future where the death penalty has been abolished and convicts are marooned on an island and must fend for themselves. Like "Survivor" except with a bit more brutality, slavery, sex, and death. The storyline involves a main camp of convicts controlled by the tyrannical Bobby (Sean Kenney), who rules with an iron hand and keeps women around as sex slaves. When A.J. (Don Marshall), and a group of more “free-minded” murderers liberate the women from Bobby's custody, tensions mount to an all-out bloodbath.

Perhaps the most memorable scene in "Terminal Island" is when a female convict seduces a man, covers his genitals with honey, and then insights a swarm of angry bees to attack the man while his pants are down.

Phyllis Davis is known for her work on "Love, American Style" (1969), and for the role of "Beatrice" or "Bea" on "Vega$" (1978) from 1978-81. Her credits are extensive... (She played Susan Lake in "Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls"). Phyllis is still involved in show business, but on a limited basis.

The following video clip is the infamous Phyllis Davis' nude scene as it appears in the feature film Terminal Island, included are rare "editor’s outtakes" and a corny 1970's voice-over.
