The Blue Lagoon , a classic ish novel by Henry De Vere Stacpoole, has inspired five films despite being pretty creepy. Not creepy in a spooky way, but creepy in a messed-up, this-is-super-problematic way. While the scenes were simulated using a body double for Shields, the film is still uncomfortable to watch. The plot is relatively straightforward and features standard stuff for a human survival story. It opens with three people shipwrecked on a remote South Pacific island.
The film stars Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins. The film tells the story of two young children marooned on a tropical island paradise in the South Pacific.
