When I was in elementary school, there was a TV movie starring Kathy Ireland entitled "Danger Island." It tells the tale of a group of people who flee a military coup in the Caribbean whose plane goes down. Some of the people who survive the crash float in a life raft to a small island, where all sorts of weird stuff happens. It turns out the island is an abandoned biological-weapons testing facility. Two men are attacked by some sort of octopus-like creature and infected with a DNA-altering virus--one mutates into a man-fish-type creature, while the other undergoes more subtle changes. Both of them have flashbacks to the collapse of order on the island years ago. It turns out that one of the survivors of the plane crash was actually there when it all went down. The movie was released on DVD/video as "The Presence." http://www.amazon.com/Presence-Tommy-Lee-Wallace/dp/B00008G8NA http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104049/ It was supposed to be a pilot for a TV series, but the series never got off the ground. What if it had? Could we have Lost, only 15 years earlier?
