The first and best adaptation of Wells's "The Island of Dr. Moreau." Great performance by Charles Laughton, very atmospheric and, even if it's a little dated, cool make-up. A big inspiration to Devo ("Are we not men?"), who are interviewed on the extras.

Sound and Very well done old school sci-fi movie. I would recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

Some really funny bits. Loved the drunk ship's captain belting Parker and throwing him overboard. And that 'Panther Woman' was hot! (lol) Delightfully cheezy eighty year old classic.

Much better than expected - a real classic. Are we not men?!

For what it's worth, it's not that bad...but not that great either.

A creepy, classic horror film that belongs alongside Dracula, Frankenstein, and Freaks.
