The first film adaptation of H.G. Wells' Island Of Doctor Moreau is still nerve-rattling today. Starring the great Charles Laughton as the doctor, who toils away on his private island trying to achieve true human-animal synthesis. When a rough-and-ready adventurer, a shipwreck survivor, is dropped off at Moreau’s port, trouble starts brewing between the man and the doctor, who lords over his creations like a demigod. Truly chilling and surprisingly vivid. If you think old horror movies are not scary, try this one on for size.
