This review is from: Island of Lost Souls [Masters of Cinema] (Dual Format) [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)I've been waiting for this one for years. It's just great, far and away the best version of Doctor Moreau on film. The book is, in my opinion, Wells' best work, so it's a win win here. I've only ever seen this once on a ropey VHS in Africa, so a spanking high quality copy will be just great. Now, if only someone would release 'Mask of Fu Manchu'...

Mask of Fu Manchu has been available in the box set 'Hollywood's Legends of Horror Collection' since 2005. The only drawback being you'll need a region 1 player. If you want it, be quick - I think it may getting scarcer as the price seems to be creeping up. It could be found for under £10 18 months ago but is now about £20.
Even at that price I think it's a good buy as the set includes 4 other very enjoyable films from the 30s: Doctor X; Return of Doctor X; Mad Love; Devil Doll and Mark of the Vampire.

Thanks for that, I'll order it straight away. I like Mad Love as well, not so fussed about Mark of the Vampire and haven't seen the other three, so I'm sure that even at £20 it'll be a good buy.
