Where to start and where to end? Props, makeup, script, cast and more.
The film is adapted from the book by H.G. Well, "The island of Dr. Moreau". The plot unfolds in the secret island of Dr Moreau (Charles Laughton) who is sensational in the role of emmonikoy, influential physician with the horrific experiments on people. Madness, ambition and the inhumanity of the doctor is unimaginable to the beings which generates. The Lota (Kathleen Burke) is excellent in her role. Innocent, sweet but also dangerous. These two characters, along with the character of Bela Lugosi, Sayer of the Law, are the ones who steal the show in the movie.
The language that speak the mutants are a mix of the voices of animals and entertain foreign language upside down. This stunt has caused nausea in viewers who did vomit.
Ultra sets, amazing makeup, dark atmosphere. The film as a whole is well. The duration is just 1 hour and 10 minutes, without it playing a negative role in evolution. Quite the contrary. The actors interpret their roles surprisingly without being tedious or fall into the trap of excesses.
