Dir. Erle C. Kenton (1932). Theres freak-show poetry to this early adaptation of H.G. Wells mad scientist tale, Island of Doctor Moreau. Charles Laughton stars as the epicene administrator of the House of Pain with a hirsute Bela Lugosi as the most poignant of his monsters, howling at the moon, Are we not men?
