I've been looking forward to seeing The Island of Lost Souls for so long, and it delivered. A thunderstorm almost interfered with reception but fortunately had passed by the time it showed. Am I glad!
Charles Laughton was AMAZING and I think the second acting credit should go to Kathleen Burke as Lota the panther woman. When she first appears she looks so otherworldly.
Doctor Moreau's scheme to interbreed one of his homunculi with some captured human by hook or by crook is truly one of the most dastardly ever seen on screen, especially when you combine it with how he operates on the animals without anesthesia. It's like he acknowledges they have feelings, he just doesn't care. One of the villainiest villains ever.
