Troma released Zombie Island Massacre on a triple pack in January 2004 and a 15 pack in October 2006. In August 2014, it played at the eighth B Movie Celebration, hosted by Joe Bob Briggs.
Ian Jane of DVD Talk said that the film has "a sense of ridiculous charm to it" and is enjoyable despite its flaws. Writing in the Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle said, "Though up-scale for a Troma release, this is still unbearably tedious and awful, to be avoided by any expedient." Dendle writes that although the film does not have traditional Romero-style zombies, the voodoo ceremony raises what seems to be Haitian zombie.
