    Ah! The very thought of transplanting Captain Bligh to a deserted island's mad Prospero, turning humans into animals (and not even having to ask Sycorax for permission), a delightful modern take on the old "Frankenstein" story only done with verve and sporting the performance of a brilliant actor not the least bit shy of the hokey material. He eats up the scenery and proves that great acting will make a silk purse of a sow's ear.

    1) Charles Laughton's creepy/sexual ambiguity. 2) The 'kiss' between Edward & Lota 3) The chilling climax.

    Laughton's Moreau is the most evil mad scientist ever...the atmosphere of perverse sexuality... Lugosi's performance

    1. The dangers of science run amok. 2. Incredible sets and photography from Dreire and Struss. 3. Charles Laughton IS Dr. Moreau.
