32 Days of Halloween IV, Movie Night No. 31: Island of Lost Souls (1932)

Island of Lost Souls 1932

Well, previously this has been a night for versions of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. In fact, over the three years we’ve gone this prior to now, we’ve hit you with three different adaptations of the story: 1923, 1939 and 1956. And that’s all she wrote for right now, anyway. So we’ve had to change tactics.

Let’s go back to the first film adaptation of another classic: H.G. WellsIsland of Dr. Moreau. Here it’s from 1932 and stars Charles Laughton, who played Quasimodo in the 1939 version of Hunchback we posted previously (see–we tied it in!). Also on board is Bela Lugosi as the Sayer of the Law. Enjoy!

Weirdly enough, this is not available on DVD. At all.
