Terminal Island is a 1973 exploitation action film directed by Stephanie Rothman. The movie is set in a dystopian future where convicted murderers are sent to Terminal Island, an uninhabited island off the coast of California, instead of being put to death. Devoid of societal constraints and guard supervision, the convicts are left to form their own self-governed society. The plot explores the power struggles among the prisoners, focusing on the escalating tension between the ruthless male-dominated group led by Bobby (Sean Kenney) and the burgeoning resistance led by A.J. (Don Marshall) and Joy (Phyllis Davis). The film presents a grim view of human nature and the struggle for survival in a lawless society.
