TERROR FILMS RELEASING has teamed with director Sebastian Mantilla for the release of his new horror film, Island Of The
Dolls. The film is inspired by a true story set on a small island in Mexico, which has long been rumored to be haunted after the death of a young girl found floating near the island,  La Isla de las Muñecas.

Starring Isela Vega, Paul Alayo, Emma Raine Walker, and Dayleigh Nelson, the film follows modern-day journalist Emily, who takes on an assignment to research and uncover the truth about the infamous Island of the Dolls. With the assistance of her friend and several locals, they travel to the island, soon discovering the danger and horrors that await them. Despite the group’s dangers, Emily is determined to crack the case and uncover the truth. But will she accept the truth she finds, or will her obsession finally consume her?

Mantilla shared their thoughts about the making of the film:
“When I found out about this film which was based on the island, this is what first grabbed my attention
and on top of that, the visual aspect of the island is impressive; this is essential for someone such as a director or a
cinematographer to have in telling the story about the mysterious legend surrounding the island. But we are going
to tell this story from more of a human aspect and approach it from a psychological side in how our emotions can
manipulate us by turning us into our own puppets of emotions.”

Island of the Dolls will premiere on the YouTube Terror Channel on May 17 th, 2024. The premiere will feature a live chat with the
filmmaker and cast. June 1st, 2024 the film will be released on multiple streaming platforms, including Amazon, Tubi TV,
PlayNow Media, UDU TV, Kings of Horror, and many more. For more on Terror Films, follow them on Facebook.
