Originally rejected by the BBFC on its original release for being 'against nature', this first and best screen adaptation of H. G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau is a taboo-flaunting, blood-curdling spectacular, and one of Hollywood's wildest, most notorious, pre-Code pictures.
 
Shipwrecked and adrift, Edward Parker finds himself a guest on Dr. Moreau's isolated South Seas island, but quickly discovers the horrifying nature of the doctor's work and the origin of the strange forms inhabiting the isle: a colony of wild animals reworked into humanoid form via sadistic surgical experiments. Furthermore, Parker quickly begins to fear his own part in the doctor's plans to take the unholy enterprise to a next level.
 
Featuring a peerlessly erudite and sinister performance by Charles Laughton as the diabolical doctor, a sterling appearance by Bela Lugosi as the half-beast-half-man 'Sayer of the Law', and sensationally atmospheric cinematography by the great Karl Struss (Murnau's Sunrise, Mamoulian's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), Island of Lost Souls now returns to claim a central position among the most imaginative and nightmarish fantasies from Hollywood's golden age of horror.

Great film, and a grest steelbook!

Never seen this film before, so this was my first time for this B/W classic horror. It revolves around a strange and somewhat mysterious doctor, on an isolated and unchartered island, carrying out even stranger practices - away from the prying eyes of the outside world. But, when a shipwrecked passenger comes along, things start to unravel. I thought it was very good: great makeup effects, great sets, acting was staright-up and there was none of the melodramatic music that accompanies many of these older films which, in this case, really aided the movies atmosphere. Yes, i will be watching this again. The steelbook is excellent: title-less, so all you have is an image, the way i like it! Much better in hand than in the pic. I had a minor problem with this though, and Zavvi dealt with it promptly, and resolved the issue - top marks agsin Zavvi, and a big thank you!! 10/10
