Still scary after all these years.

Island of Lost Souls is an adaptation of The Island of Dr Moreau by H G Wells. Charles Laughton gives a tremendous performance as Dr Moreau, the irresponsible scientist who creates men out of animals on a remote island. Bela Lugosi also has a small but memorable role. The makeup in this film is superb and still very creepy. The film is fast-paced at 1hr 10 mins. It could have benefited from some music in some of the chase sequences, but I found it still very unnerving, A classic.
