Entertainment Weekly - 03/24/1995
"...A 19th-century fairy-tale engraving come to nightmarish life..." -- Rating:B
Film Comment - 11/01/2011
"Erle C. Kenton's 1932 production is an upscale creature feature with top-notch masks..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2012
"[T]his remains by far the best Moreau film, capturing vividly the sense of the book's ominous denouement..."
Total Film - 07/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "The horror is implied rather than shown, but all the more potent for it."

Product Description:

Widely banned when it was released, this horror classic features a young Charles Laughton and a wild-haired Bela Lugosi in the film based on the H.G. Wells novel THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU. After being shipwrecked, a young man winds up on a mysterious island populated by a mad scientist intent on transforming animals into men, and serving as their God, with the injunction: "What is the law' No spill blood! Are we not men'" A genuinely unsettling classic.

Plot Synopsis:

Dr. Moreau is a deranged scientist living on a remote island, conducting his evil experiments. He's attempting to transform wild beasts into humans, resulting in half-man/half-beast monstrosities. So when a shipwrecked man lands on the isle, he has no idea what Moreau has in store for him...
