Haunts of the Very Rich (1972)

This Aaron Spelling made for television production from 1972, Haunts of the Very Rich, delivers a Twilight Zone-esque premise, a plane load of wealthy individuals suddenly find themselves landing on an island with many more questions than answers, and stretches it out over some 75 minutes. The casting is a true hallmark of the 1970s and features: Lloyd Bridges, Cloris Leachman, Edward Asner, Anne Francis, Donna Mills, Moses Gunn, Michael Lembeck, and Robert Reed as Reverend John Fellow. A truly odd movie that I first came across when it was re-broadcast in the afternoon during the early 80s. In some aspects this presages Spelling's Fantasy Island series.
