Island Of Lost Souls

Charles Laughton and Bela Lugosi star in this notorious film version of H. G. Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau, about a mad scientist on a remote island who tries to turn jungle beasts into humans. Dialogue from this creepy movie (which was banned in Britain for over 25 years) has seeped into pop culture, also inspiring rock musicians from Devo (“Are we not men?”) and Oingo Boingo to Van Halen. Cinematography by Karl Struss (Sunrise).
